North End’s second away game in the space of three days sees the Lilywhites travel to Pride Park to take on Derby County this Saturday afternoon.
Alex Neil’s men take on Frank Lampard’s Rams looking to bounce straight back from Tuesday night’s defeat to Norwich City. The North End boss has options available should he wish to make changes with the close proximity of the fixtures.
Last season the Rams won both of the two clashes between the sides 1-0. This game will be the fifth of the season, whilst last year, after what was the fourth of the campaign, PNE were just one point better off than they currently are.
The change of manager at County has brought with it plenty of exposure, with the high-profile nature of their appointment, and it has also brought a change of footballing style. They have picked up a couple of wins and go into the game looking to make it back-to-back home victories.
The appointment of the former Chelsea man into the hot seat has also brought a number of new faces, including a few young talents on loan, but they still have plenty of familiar faces, including former North End fan favourite David Nugent, who started their win over Ipswich Town on Tuesday night.
