After only 16-seconds, with Garner's effort saved by Button, Johnson (1) followed up to have Preston off to a dream start!

Johnson created another Preston chance but deadline day signing from Sheffield Wednesday May couldn't take the chance to double the PNE lead as he headed wide.

Brentford would have been level through a Barbet header but Sunderland loanee 'keeper Pickford made a fine save to turn the effort around the post with Button doing the same to deny Garner again with his header before the break.

Shortly after coming on, Brentford loanee Canos made an impact just past the hour as he crossed into Vibe (62) who scored from close range to make it one-all.
