Huddersfield Town continue their Sky Bet Championship campaign when they welcome Preston North End to the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday 17 August 2021; 7.45pm kick-off.

Town go into Tuesday’s game looking for their first win of the new season, following a draw and a loss in their opening two games.

Preston are also searching for their first win, having lost 2-1 to Reading on Saturday 14 August 2021.


Preston finished last season sitting in 13th place of the Sky Bet Championship table, taking 61 points from 46 games.

Following the conclusion of the 2020/21 season, the Lilywhites appointed interim boss Frankie McAvoy as their permanent Head Coach.


McAvoy had originally stepped up temporarily in March 2021, following the parting of ways with then Head Coach, Alex Neil.


Scott Sinclair

Sinclair joined Preston from Celtic in January 2020, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract. The midfielder won Preston’s Goal of the Season award at the conclusion of 2020/21 with his 40 yard strike against AFC Bournemouth. He then went on to finish his first full season as the Lilywhites’ top goalscorer, bagging nine goals in 37 appearances.


Emil Riis Jakobsen

The forward signed a four-year contract with Preston in October 2020, moving to the UK from Randers FC. He scored his first goal for the Club the following month, in a 3-0 win over Reading. The Denmark international made 38 appearances in his first season for the Lilywhites, scoring two goals. He also opened Preston’s goalscoring tally for the current season, scoring in their 4-1 defeat to Hull City.


Daniel Johnson

A long-term staple of the Lilywhites, Johnson signed from Aston Villa in January 2015. He impressed in his first season, scoring eight goals in 18 appearances. Last season saw him score four goals in 33 appearances, before going on to agree a new contract until June 2023. The midfielder has kicked on this season, scoring against Reading last Saturday.



Town Head Coach Carlos Corberán will provide an update on the fitness of his squad ahead of Tuesday’s game during his virtual press conference on Monday 16 August 2021.


Town will be in their famous blue and white stripes for Tuesday evening’s game.
