PNE Team News

Emil Riis, who missed the draw against Millwall, has been out on the grass running and will be assessed ahead of Tuesday’s game.

There’s also a decision to be made over Alan Browne, with the skipper having been forced off with a glute injury on Good Friday.

Izzy Brown, Ryan Ledson and Tom Barkhuizen remain sidelined.

The Opposition

After missing the chance to secure automatic promotion on Good Friday – having lost to Derby County – the Cottagers will get another shot on Tuesday night against North End.

In fact, the job could even be sealed before Ryan Lowe takes his side to the capital, if results elsewhere go their way on Easter Monday.

With Marco Silva in his first campaign in charge of Fulham, it’s been a remarkable season, and at this stage it appears a matter of when not if they will secure promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Key Stats

Fulham are comfortably the division’s top scorers, having netted an incredible 95 goals so far this season, 33 more than the second-highest tally in the Championship.

38 of those have come from Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic – to set a new all-time Championship high – and he has scored seven goals in seven games against PNE in his career.

PNE are one of two sides in the division yet to score in the opening 15 minutes of an away fixture this season.

Our Last Meeting

North End earned a point against high-flying Fulham back in November, with striker Ched Evans coming off the bench to score a 72nd-minute equaliser to cancel out Tim Ream’s opener.

Man In The Middle

Taking charge of just his second ever PNE game this weekend will be Leigh Doughty.

Doughty, who became an EFL referee in 2019, first refereed a North End fixture last November in the home defeat against Cardiff City.

So far this season, he has taken charge of 29 matches, showing 108 yellow cards and four reds.

Match Reports

Match Report: Fulham 3 PNE 0

19 April 2022

Preston North End were beaten 3-0 at Craven Cottage as Fulham secured promotion to the Premier League.

All three of the goals came inside the opening 45 minutes, with a Fabio Carvalho strike in between an Aleksandar Mitrovic brace sealing a spot in the top flight for the league leaders.

It was PNE who started on the front foot, though, almost taking the lead inside six minutes, with Cameron Archer and Daniel Johnson linking up to then find Ched Evans, who saw his close-range shot take a nick off Tosin Adarabioyo and Marek Rodak was able to claw it away.

The goalkeeper was called into action again just 60 seconds later, this time needing to tip over Ben Whiteman’s deflected long-range strike.

Fulham were the side to open the scoring, though, with Joe Bryan slipping Mitrovic through on goal, and he slotted the ball under Daniel Iversen.

After curling inches wide from the edge of the area, Carvalho got his goal ten minutes after, with Neeskens Kebano’s cross deflecting into the attacker’s path and he lifted the ball into the net.

The hosts had a third before the half was over, as Harry Wilson found Mitrovic who finished clinically to score his 40th of the Championship season.

North End so nearly pulled one back in the opening moments of the second half through Archer, but Rodak stretched himself wide to touch his effort onto the crossbar.

At the other end, Iversen denied Mitrovic his hat-trick, firstly saving one-on-one against the Serbian before a few minutes later needing to keep out his 12-yard effort with an outstretched hand.

PNE came close a couple of times before time was up, with Ben Whiteman coming closest by seeing a free-kick land narrowly over, but it was the hosts who took the points to confirm their passage to the Premier League.

Fulham line-up: Rodak; Williams; Adarabioyo, Ream, Bryan; Cairney, Reed (Seri, 70); Wilson, Carvalho (De Cordova-Reid, 75), Kebano; Mitrovic (Muniz, 77). Subs not used: Gazzaniga, Hector, Chalobah, Robinson.

PNE line-up: Iversen; van den Berg, Lindsay, Hughes; Potts (Sinclair, 69), McCann, Whiteman, Johnson, Earl (Diaby, 45); Evans (Maguire, 25), Archer. Subs not used: Hudson, Cunningham, Rafferty, Huntington.
