Season summary[edit]

In the 2005–06 season, Billy Davies and his assistant David Kelly were rewarded for their success with new and improved contracts in June 2005 and repaid the board's faith by leading Preston to the play-offs for the second year in succession. However, this time they were knocked out in the semi-final stage by Leeds United.

In June 2006, Davies left his post at Deepdale to become manager of Derby County.[1]
