7 November 2018
The Lilywhites face Lee Johnson’s side, looking to extend their positive run of results against the Robins in recent seasons, but know it will be a tough test against a side who have again started the season brightly.
 
Manager Alex Neil will have to make at least one change for the trip, with goalkeeper Chris Maxwell suspended for the game, with Declan Rudd set to return to the starting XI for the first time since September.
 
The hosts are likely to include one former North Ender, in Josh Brownhill, in the squad to face his former employers, but their skipper and former PNE favourite Bailey Wright is still on the road back to full fitness after a summer operation.
 
Another player with both sides on his CV is Callum Robinson, who has a good record against City and will look to continue that before he heads away with Ireland for two games during the break.

10 November 2018

A first half goal from Callum Robinson gave the Lilywhites all three points at Ashton Gate to give them their first away win of the season.

Robinson scored his ninth goal of the season ten minutes before the interval, converting from close range after an excellent move involving the four forward players in the side.
 
Manager Alex Neil made two changes to the side that had drawn at Ipswich Town, Declan Rudd replacing the suspended Chris Maxwell in goal and the Portman Road hero Paul Gallagher coming into the midfield, with Alan Browne dropping to the bench.
 
And Gally was heavily involved in the first chance of the game, as a cross from the right by Sean Maguire was deflected out to the No.12, roughly 35 yards out in the right-hand channel, and with everyone expecting the shot he cleverly threaded the ball into Tom Barkhuizen eight yards out, but the striker was not expecting it and the ball bounced off him when unmarked.
 
Before the ten-minute mark the visitors had another chances as Robinson was sent clear by brilliant flick from Maguire. A cross back from the left by the No.7 found the Irishman, but he had to stretch for his header and Niki Maenpaa in the Robins goal claimed the effort below his cross bar.
 
Just before the mi-way point in the first period Barkhuizen was sent down the right by Maguire, he drove into the right-hand corner of the box and forced a smart blocking save from Maenpaa.
 
And it was the No.29 who was almost in on goal again on 29 minutes, from a Gallagher through ball, with Adam Webster’s back pass rescued by the leg of Maenpaa with the striker about to pounce.
But the opener came on 35 minutes and it was a brilliant PNE goal. Worked from Maguire on the left, he switched it to the right to Barkhuizen; his ball into the box was deflected and well-collected by Daniel Johnson, who ghosted to the edge of the six-yard box and saw Robinson to his left, passing perfectly for the No.7 to slide home his ninth of the season.
In the first 90 seconds of the half it could have been 2-0 as first Barkhuizen and then Maguire were both denied by superb block tackles and last-ditch efforts from City defenders – it was a blistering opening to the second period.
 
With eight minutes left former PNE man Josh Brownhill was the first City player of the day to test Rudd, from a 25 yards free kick, that the North End No.1 did superbly to push over the bar for a corner.
 
But despite six minutes of stoppage time, some excellent defending from North End meant they earned the clean sheet and the win their vocal away support deserved.
