In The Dressing Room

Ryan Lowe confirmed Álvaro Fernández is back on the grass and there’s a chance he could make the matchday squad for the first time since the Carabao Cup first round tie against Huddersfield Town.

The manager also said Andrew Hughes’ shoulder is still feeling stiff, and the Welshman will be assessed ahead of the trip to Cardiff.

Sean Maguire is back with the squad in training, but is still some way off being match fit, while Bambo Diaby is also out on the grass.

A Look At Our Hosts

The Cardiff City side which PNE will face on Saturday is a very different one to the team which played the last time the two met just five months ago.

Only two players who started that game featured for the Bluebirds in their last Championship outing – a 2-0 defeat at Bristol City last weekend – given their extremely busy summer of recruitment.

Championship experience in the likes of Callum O’Dowda, Cédric Kipré and Mahlon Romeo has been brought to the squad, and like PNE, they’ve taken seven points from their opening five games.

Going Head To Head

Games played: 99
PNE wins: 36
Draws: 24
Cardiff City wins: 39
Last meeting: Cardiff City 0-0 PNE, 12th March 2022

One To Watch


After his contract at Bristol City came to an end, Callum O’Dowda joined Cardiff City on a three-year deal in June 2022.

The Republic of Ireland international, capped 23 times for his country, has enjoyed a good start to life with the Bluebirds, having opened his account against Reading, while he put in a man of the match performance against Birmingham City.

The 27-year-old winger is well versed in the second tier, having now made well over 150 appearances in the Championship since his move to the higher level from Oxford United in 2016.

Match Officials


Experienced official Andy Woolmer is the man in the middle for this fixture.

Woolmer actually took charge of this game during the 2021/22 campaign, when the two sides met in the FA Cup at the Cardiff City Stadium, while his last PNE league game was the 2-1 victory at Middlesbrough last November.

The official has shown 19 yellow cards and one red in the four games he has taken charge of so far this season.

Match Report: Cardiff City 0 PNE 0

27 August 2022

Preston North End extended their run of Championship clean sheets to six, however couldn’t find a goal at the other end, as they played out a 0-0 draw at the Cardiff City Stadium.

The hosts had the better of the chances overall, with captain Joe Ralls coming closest for the home side in the second half as he struck the post, but North End again showed their strength in defence to keep out the Bluebirds.

PNE so nearly had a late winner, courtesy of a Cedric Kipré defensive header which hit his own woodwork, but the ball somehow stayed out.

Ryan Lowe made one change from last weekend’s draw at home to Watford, with Greg Cunningham starting in place of the injured Andrew Hughes.

It was the hosts who started brightly and had three efforts at goal inside the opening ten minutes, with the best of them being Perry Ng’s strike from just more than 20 yards out, which landed inches wide.

PNE’s first real foray forward came on 12 minutes, with Troy Parrott and Daniel Johnson linking up well, and the former tried to pull the ball back for onrushing bodies, but Ng got there first to put it behind for a corner.

Cardiff were the side on top in the first half, ending the opening 45 minutes having had 13 shots, but the manager didn’t wait until the break to make a change, as he brought Emil Riis on in place of Johnson on 35 minutes.

The Bluebirds had a couple of shouts for a penalty early in the second half, both of which were waved away, before a North End counter saw Riis fire a low shot wide of goal.

Skipper for the hosts, Ralls then had the best effort of the game so far on 52 minutes as he curled a first-time, left-footed effort against Freddie Woodman’s post.

A double change for North End then saw Ali McCann and Ben Woodburn introduced, and the latter played a brilliant ball over the top to Parrott who took the ball down well, however his shot was blocked by a defender.

North End were left wondering how they didn’t take the lead in the 86th minute, as Potts sent a cross into the box, and Kipré – facing his own goal – headed against the post, and the ball then hit goalkeeper Ryan Allsop before being cleared.

Niels Nkounkou tested Woodman in the closing stages, but he made sure he left South Wales as the first PNE goalkeeper to have started a league season with six clean sheets.

Cardiff City line-up: Allsop; Romeo, Ng, Kipré, O’Dowda (Nkounkou, 45); Sawyers (Whyte, 90+2), Vaulks, Ralls (Rinomhota, 70); Philogene (Harris, 70), Watters, Colwill (Ojo, 88), Subs not used: Alnwick, Simpson.

PNE line-up: Woodman; Storey, Lindsay, Cunningham; Potts, Whiteman, Ledson (McCann, 63), Brady; Browne (Woodburn, 63), Johnson (Riis, 35); Parrott (Evans, 78). Subs not used: Cornell, Bauer, Slater.

Attendance: 17,922.

Referee: Mr A Woolmer.
