Bermuda's English Footballers Round Up
Jonte Smith came off the bench and Scored
Nahki Wells and his Queens Park Rangers teammates slipped to their first home defeat in five matches on a disappointing afternoon at Loftus Road.
To their credit, it was both a professional and clinical display from visitors Preston North End, who ended their own run of six games without a win with this 4-1 success.
Former Exeter City man and January capture Jayden Stockley – leading goalscorer in the top four divisions of English football in 2018 – gave Preston North End a 1-0 half-time lead.
Further goals from Jordan Storey in the 68th minute, Alan Browne in the 82nd minute and Brad Potts in the 87th minute rubberstamped victory for Alex Neil’s side.
Matt Smith provided a consolation effort and no more than that for QPR in the 84th minute.
Reggie Lambe was once again not in the Cambridge United team that twice fought from behind and overcame a penalty miss before lifting the roof off at the Abbey Stadium in stoppage time to take the spoils 3-2 against Northampton Town.
Jevani Brown and George Taft both pulled Cambridge United level to cancel out goals from Aaron Pierre and Junior Morais, before David Amoo clinched the three points at the end of a Cambridge United onslaught in the 95th minute, making it three consecutive wins in Sky Bet League Two.
Jonte Smith came off the bench to help Lewes defeat Wingate & Finchley 4 – 2.
Ahmet Rifat gave Wingate & Finchley in the 11th minute, an own goal in the 58th minute doubled the lead for Wingate & Finchley, but Lewes would begin their fightback in the 60th minute as Frankie Chappell found the back of the net.
Smith would enter the game in the 64th minute as he replaced Olumide Oluwatimilehin, three minutes later it was 2 – 2 when Smith converted from the penalty spot.
Callum Overton would get Lewes the lead when he found the back of the net in the 82nd minute, Overton would score again in the 90th minute to earn Lewes all three points.

Wells Gives His Thoughts on Spygate
QPR striker Nahki Wells has given his thoughts on the ‘spygate’ saga by saying he can see why Derby have taken issue with it.
Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa admitted sending a member of his staff to watch the Rams train ahead of their Championship clash last week – before admitting that he’s done the same with every opponent that he’s faced this term.
It’s a debate that has got the whole football world talking, and the 28-year-old admits that he finds the moral ground surrounding the issue tricky to navigate.
Speaking to Football.London, Wells said: “I can see from his (Marcelo Bielsa’s) point of view he’s trying to use every beneficial way to gain an advantage on his opposition but from Derby’s point of view it’s unsportsmanlike. I don’t know what’s right or wrong but I guess it’s just not good to see in football.
“But if he’s not broken any laws then how can you call it wrong?”
Wells added: “It’s the first time I’ve heard of that happening.
“Obviously you hear in football nowadays that people try and gain any advantage they can from social media going into a game – just to help your team and to know about injuries or niggles and stuff like that, but that’s what people do to gain that sort of information going into the game.
“But I haven’t heard of anyone doing that so it is a bit new for me.”
Of course, QPR would have a right to be aggrieved by the revelations coming from Elland Road having faced Leeds twice already this term.
But after losing 2-1 in the Championship in December, the Hoops did get their own back with an FA Cup victory at Loftus Road in January – something which Wells admits made claims about spying irrelevant.
He said: “They got the win over us a few weeks prior to us at their ground which was a bit disappointing but we got a bit of revenge in the FA Cup.
