Preston move step closer to Championship
PRESTON 3 CHESTERFIELD 0 (Agg 4-0)
Jermaine Beckford stole the show as Preston booked their first Wembley trip since 1994.
The Lancashire side moved one step away from laying their play-off curse to rest after advancing past Chesterfield in the Sky Bet League One play-off semi-finals.
Seven days after missing out on automatic promotion to the Championship following an agonising loss at Colchester, Beckford's volley and incredible lob from near the halfway line helped Preston to a 3-0 victory and 4-0 aggregate success.
His goals came either side of a penalty from the division's top scorer Joe Garner, and ensured Preston were feeling altogether different emotions this Sunday afternoon.
Thursday night's 1-0 win in Derbyshire was followed up in style as Simon Grayson's side looked to make the most of their second opportunity having ceded second spot to MK Dons last weekend.
