Watch: Sean Maguire Scores And Hobbles Off Injured For Preston

Sean Maguire's week to remember may have ended on a sour note.

Last week he made his Ireland debut against Moldova, and was on the bench for the 1-0 win against Cardiff.

Returning to Deepdale as a full international, Maguire revealed in an interview that "the adrenaline is still pumping through my body just thinking about" coming off the bench to play Moldova.

In the space of five first-half minutes against Fulham at Craven Cottage, the former Cork City striker scored a goal and was substituted with an injury.

The goal (his third in The Championship this season) will be one of the more fortuitous he scores in his career. Tom Barkhuizen cut in from the right wing and saw his shot deflect off Maguire to fly past David Button.

Unluckily for Maguire he was substituted five minutes later after pulling up. At half-time he walked towards the dressing rooms with his upper right leg strapped up.

A hamstring injury may rule him out of Ireland's World Cup qualifiers next month, and could halt what has been a brilliant start to his Preston career.
