Preston's duck mascot goes quackers and gets sent off

Preston mascot Deepdale Duck went quackers – and got himself in a real flap before and during the defeat by Derby on Saturday.
The North End cheerleader was escorted from the pitch after trying to distract Rams keeper Stephen Bywater during the match.
However, Deepdale Duck had also been in an odd mood before the game too.
He twice interrupted BBC presenter Mark Clement during his ‘links’ from the tunnel.
Clement tried to explain the Preston ‘fall out’ after Darren Ferguson’s sacking.
But ‘Deepdale’ – minus his head – came over to stop him as the cameras rolled and tried to put him straight.
