What do Preston North End and Wycombe Wanderers have in common?

21 August 2015

Preston North End and Wycombe Wanderers have started their respective seasons positively and they share a statistic going into the third weekend of action in 2015/16.

Newly-promoted Preston have started with two draws and a win in the Sky Bet Championship, while Gareth Ainsworth's Wycombe possess an impressive 100 per cent record.

But what these two have in common is the fact they are yet to concede a goal this term.

With on-loan stopper Jordan Pickford between the sticks, the Lilywhites' two draws have been goalless, and they triumphed 1-0 at stadiummk against the usually free-scoring Milton Keynes Dons with the goalkeeper earning a place in our Team of the Week.

The Chairboys, meanwhile, have the talented Matt Ingram in goal and so far they've overcome York City 3-0, Barnet 2-0 and Morecambe 1-0.

Manager Ainsworth – a former Preston player – sees his side welcome rock-bottom Dagenham & Redbridge to Adams Park this weekend, while Simon Grayson's men host Ipswich Town.

Record: The most clean sheets registered at the start of a season was set in 1922/23, when Portsmouth didn't concede a goal for eight successive matches.
