Peterborough United 2-0 Preston North End
Tyrone Barnett and Grant McCann scored as Peterborough ended Preston's five-game winning run and closed to within a point of leaders Leyton Orient.
Barnett scored his sixth goal of the season when he poked home after keeper Declan Rudd spilled a McCann shot.
Rudd then let McCann's 25-yard shot slip through his hands before denying Barnett and Paul Taylor.
Bailey Wright and Joe Garner both hit the bar for Preston, while Nicky Wroe had a long-range shot tipped over.
Barnett was denied a brace by Rudd's diving save and strike partner Britt Assombalonga had a goal ruled out for offside.
