We are back at home in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday 18 October, welcoming Preston North End to the John Smith’s Stadium for a 7.45pm kick-off.
The Terriers go into the game following their narrow 2-1 away loss against Rotherham United on Saturday 15 October.
Preston North End will also be looking to bounce back after their 2-0 loss at home against Stoke City on Saturday 15 October.
This is Preston’s eighth consecutive season in the Sky Bet Championship and after finishing 13th in the table for the last two years, so the Lilywhites will be looking to push upwards and finish within the Play-Offs following a strong start.
Ryan Lowe was appointed manager of Preston North End in December 2021 departing Plymouth Argyle, and he will be hoping that his side leave the John Smith's Stadium with a similar result to earlier this season in the Carabao Cup.
ONES TO WATCH
The left wing back joined Preston North End on a season-long loan from Manchester United in July this year. Fernández signed for United’s youth team from Real Madrid’s youth team in 2020 and signed his first professional contract in 2022 before making the move to Deepdale for the season. The Spain Under-19 international was named as United’s Under-23 Player of the Year at the end of the 2021/22 season and was also named as a substitute in their final four Premier League games of the season.
Parrott joined Preston from Tottenham Hotspur on a season-long loan in July this year and scored his first goal for the Lilywhites against Town in the Carabao Cup at the beginning of the season. The forward arrived at Deepdale after a successful year with MK Dons in League One, where he hit double figures for the first time in his career. The 20-year-old has scored two goals for Preston so far this season in all competitions and has appeared in every game.
Preston’s top goal scorer from last season has started this season in the same way, with four goals already under his belt. Riis joined Preston in the summer of 2020 from Danish Superliga side Randers FC and has since scored 28 goals in all competitions. This season has seen the forward score four goals so far this season but will be wanting to push on and beat his tally of 21 goals from last season.
Head Coach Mark Fotheringham will provide full team news at his next press conference on Monday 17 October 2022.
Town will be wearing their famous blue and white stripes when they welcome Preston North End to the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday evening.
