Jordan Hugill capitalised on a Connor Ripley error to seal victory for Preston.

Preston North End progressed to the third round of the EFL Cup following a 2-0 victory over Oldham Athletic.

Second-half strikes from Eoin Doyle and then Jordan Hugill gave the Lilywhites their second victory in four days.

Doyle capitalised on a mistake by Latics keeper Connor Ripley to score his second goal in two EFL cup games.

Preston goalkeeper Chris Maxwell kept a clean sheet on his competitive debut as the away side's four-game unbeaten run came to an end.
