field fight will see them miss Blackburn Rovers clash
PRESTON duo Eoin Doyle and Jermaine Beckford will miss the Blackburn Rovers game next Saturday, with their manager branding them an “embarrassment” after an on field scuffle at Sheffield Wednesday yesterday.
Both Doyle and Beckford were sent off, and could be set for three match bans, following their actions late in the game as Preston slipped to a 2 1 defeat at Hillsborough.
In remarkable scenes, the two strikers, who had been sent on as second half substitutes, came together in the closing minutes, pushing each other in the chest before being pulled apart by the team mates.
Fight! Preston team mates Jermaine Beckford and Eoin Doyle are both sent off for clashing in the side’s defeat at Hillsborough.
“In 30 years a player and manager I have never seen an incident like that between two team mates,” Grayson told the Lancashire Evening Post.
“I thought I had seen everything at the game I went to on Friday night, Nottingham Forest and Newcastle, where there were two missed penalties and two sendings off.
“But it was an embarrassment, those two players were embarrassing.
“It came from an incident when we broke and there was a disagreement between the two of them about whether it was the right pass to play Marnick Vermijl in.
