Key Player:

Keith Treacy: The tricky winger has played well this season in what has been an underachieving Preston North End side. Treacy has scored 4 goals in 16 games, most notably in the Lancashire derby against bitter Rivals Burnley, where he was hugely impressive. The left-footed wide man started his career at Premier League side Blackburn Rovers. In order to gain first team experience Treacy had loan spells at Stockport County and Sheffield United before joining Preston in 2010 during the January transfer window. Keith Treacy is a player with bags of potential and I fully expect him to return to the top flight in the next few years.
