Matchday Programme

On an afternoon where he could become the 28th man to play 300 times for Preston North End, Daniel Johnson is our cover star and main interview in The One And Only.

With an all-new look, our matchday programme is back, and while the amount of pages has reduced from last season, there is still plenty for you to read – especially from DJ who talks all about his time so far at Deepdale.

You can pick up a copy from around the ground for £3.50 on Saturday, or order a copy to arrive to your home by clicking here.

In The Dressing Room


PNE will be without striker Ched Evans following his red card at Wigan Athletic last weekend.

Bambo Diaby, who missed the trip to the DW Stadium, is a doubt for this one after taking a knock to his knee, while Sean Maguire remains sidelined.

It could be a big day for Daniel Johnson on Saturday, given that an appearance would make him the 28th man in club history to play 300 times competitively in a PNE shirt.

A Look At Our Visitors


It’s been a year of change so far for Hull City, since the arrival of Turkish businessman and TV personality, Acun Ilıcalı as owner in January 2022.

One of his first acts was to bring Shota Arveladze to the club as head coach, and this summer there have been eight new players through the door, too.

Among them they have a 65-time capped Turkish international in Ozan Tufan, former Nottingham Forest defender Tobias Figueiredo and ex-Fulham man Jean Michaël Seri, with the latter claiming a late winner in last weekend’s victory over Bristol City.

Going Head To Head

Games played: 64
PNE wins: 29
Draws: 14
Hull City wins: 21
Last meeting: Hull City 0-1 PNE, 5th February 2022

One To Watch


Having once cost Fulham a fee reported to be over £20m, Hull City probably couldn’t believe their luck when they were able to bring Jean Michaël Seri in this summer without having to pay a transfer fee.

The Ivory Coast international had just seen his contract expire at Craven Cottage, where he enjoyed promotion last season, and he will now spend the upcoming campaign in the Championship as a Tiger.

Things couldn’t have started much better for central midfielder Seri, scoring a 94th-minute winner in front of almost 17,000 supporters on his competitive debut.

Match Officials


Jeremy Simpson is the man with the whistle this weekend for his first Championship game of the season.

Simpson, who took charge of Tranmere Rovers vs Stevenage last weekend, refereed PNE three times during the 2021/22 campaign, including the 2-1 victory away to Stoke City at the beginning of 2022.

He will be assisted by Richard Wild and Geoffrey Liddle, while Peter Wright is the fourth official.

Match Reports

Match Report: PNE 0 Hull City 0

6 August 2022

Despite a dominant second-half display, Preston North End had to settle for a point at home to Hull City.

Following a relatively quiet opening half to the game, PNE came out firing in the second period, with the likes of Robbie Brady and Troy Parrott coming close, but they couldn’t find the all-important opener.

Ryan Lowe named an unchanged starting XI from the opening day draw against Wigan Athletic, while Daniel Johnson was handed the armband by Alan Browne on his 300th appearance for the club.

There were fantastic scenes as the teams walked out, with those in the Town End waving hundreds of flags as they welcomed their side back to Deepdale.

Those fans were almost off their seats within just four minutes of kick-off, as Emil Riis tested Matt Ingram with a low fizzing effort, but the goalkeeper was equal to it.

Former Hull man Brady soon also tested Ingram, before at the other end both Jacob Greaves and Óscar Estupiñán saw efforts go narrowly over the crossbar.

Brady so nearly gave his side the lead inside the opening minute of the second half, as he saw a powerful right-footed effort take a nick off a defender and strike the goalkeeper’s right-hand post.

Troy Parrott then came close on two occasions to opening his account for the club, both times being denied by Ingram, with the second effort being a superb piledriving strike from 25 yards.

Browne was next to come close, as he got on the end of Parrott’s knockdown and had a close-range effort turned behind by Ingram, however, a goal-kick was awarded.

Ben Woodburn came on off the bench and showed incredible skill to beat his man and send a ball over the top with the outside of his boot, to send Parrott through on goal, but again Ingram was there to thwart the striker.

North End kept knocking on the door, however, the goal just didn't arrive for the Lilywhites.

PNE line-up: Woodman; Storey, Lindsay, Hughes; Potts (Fernández, 66), Whiteman, Browne, Johnson (Woodburn, 79), Brady; Parrott, Riis. Subs not used: Cornell, Bauer, McCann, Ledson, O’Neill.

Hull City line-up: Ingram; Jones, Figueiredo, Greaves; Coyle, Seri (Williams, 85), Slater, Sayyadmanesh; Tufan (Cannon, 81), Tetteh (Elder, 59), Estupiñán (Covil, 59). Subs not used: Robson, McLoughlin, Wilks.

Attendance: 15,816 (1,610 away fans).

Referee: Mr J Simpson.
