Daryl Horgan dazzles on first start with assist as Roy Keane looks on
Ex-Dundalk winger Daryl Horgan put in an eye-catching performance in his first start for Preston North End in the Championship this afternoon.
Horgan provided an assist for Callum Robinson's second half goal as Preston overturned league leaders Brighton with an impressive display. It will come as a huge boost to the former League of Ireland player, who had the chance to impress Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane, who was in attendance.
Horgan's impressive afternoon didn't go unnoticed on social media, with the 24-year-old getting a lot of praise for his efforts.
