Preston North End manager Phil Brown acted angrily stating “If I had a gun, I would have shot them down” after Blackpool fans sent a plane over Deedpale mocking Preston’s relegation.

Preston gave their trusty Deepdale fans something to smile about in their final game despite a dreadful season after goals from Nicholson, Hume and Proctor secured a 3 – 1 win.

The win meant North End did not finish bottom after leapfrogging Scunthorpe and Sheffield United into 22nd place.

But during the win against Watford, rival Blackpool fans sent a plane over the top of Deepdale mocking North End’s relegation to league one with a banner stating “We are superior love Blackpool FC".

Later in the match, the plane reappeared with another banner saying: “Poor little Preston enjoy League One.”

Preston North End manager Phil Brown reacted angrily, saying:

“If I had had a gun I would have shot them down.

"Arrest me now if you want. I found it very distasteful.

“Maybe I will be flying the Preston plane when it comes to the end of the season.”
