NEWS of the treatment of mascot Deepdale Duck – who was ejected from Preston North End’s ground at the weekend for distracting Derby County keeper Stephen Bywater – has been met with protests by fellow mascot Captain Blade.
The Sheffield United mascot Captain Blade staged a half-time protest in solidarity over the sending off.
During the interval of the Monday night 2-2 draw between Sheffield United and Doncaster, Captain Blade sat on the pitch brandishing a “Free The Preston One” placard and refused to move, delaying the second half kick off.
