Preston continued their recent improved form with a 2-0 win at Crewe.

First half goals from Callum Davidson and Adam Nowland proved to be enough for Billy Davies' side.

After making a bright start Crewe fell behind on 24 minutes when Davidson netted his third goal in successive games with a superb long-range strike.

Eddie Johnson went close for Crewe with his close-range shot being saved by Carlo Nash.

North End doubled their lead on 37 minutes when Nowland poked home David Jones' cross to leave Crewe with an uphill battle to climb.

Preston looked to add to their lead in the second half and David Nugent went close with a couple of efforts.

Crewe tried valiantly to get back into the game, but they were struggling to make any inroads against the Preston defence.

Chris Sedgwick forced Ben Williams into a good save late on as Preston ended the game on top.
