Season summary[edit]

When Preston went down 1-0 at Brighton thanks to a Marlon Broomes own goal on 28 August 2004, a day later, Craig Brown was sacked and replaced with his assistant Billy Davies.[1]

Davies took Preston to the 2005 play-off final for the first time since 2001, at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium but once again Preston ended up on the losing side, this time to West Ham United, losing 1-0.[2]
