Those overseas can watch the match live on iFollow PNE, included in seasonal subscriptions, while £10 match passes can be bought here.

In The Dressing Room

Preston North End will be without Ben Whiteman and Ched Evans for this fixture, with both players serving their respective suspensions.

Whiteman is set to miss the next three matches, while Evans has two games remaining on his retrospective ban.

There are no fresh injury concerns for manager Ryan Lowe to worry about, with long-term absentee Emil Riis the only man expected to be sidelined.

A Look At Our Hosts


It’s been an up-and-down season so far for Hull City, having started the campaign strongly, before going through a tricky run of results which saw them drop towards the bottom of the division.

Since former Derby County coach Liam Rosenior was appointed as manager, though, it’s been much more of an upward curve.

They had lost just twice in 13 Championship matches heading into their game against Norwich City midweek, which saw them lose 3-1 at the home of the Canaries, so they’ll be looking for a reaction this weekend.

Going Head To Head

Games played: 65
PNE wins: 29
Draws: 15
Hull City wins: 21
Last victory: Hull City 0-1 PNE

One To Watch


Óscar Estupiñán is by far and away the Tigers’ top goalscorer so far this campaign, having netted 12 in the league, with defender Jacob Greaves sitting second on their list of scorers with four.

The Colombian striker joined the club in July 2022 and really hit the ground running, scoring seven goals in his first six games, and he was named the Championship Player of the Month for August as a result of that form.

A dry spell followed, netting just once in 14 matches, but he hit form once more after Christmas, scoring in four successive games, and he'll no doubt continue to be a key man moving forward.

Match Officials


Sam Allison will referee his first Championship fixture this weekend.

Allison – a firefighter and former semi-professional footballer – took charge of his first EFL game in the 2020/21 campaign, and he’s regularly officiated in League One and League Two ever since.

So far this campaign, Allison has been refereed 24 games, showing 73 yellow cards and four reds in that period.

Match Report: Hull City 0 PNE 0

18 February 2023

There was nothing to separate Preston North End and Hull City as they played out a goalless draw at the MKM Stadium.

After a first half which saw the hosts enjoy the better of the chances, PNE had opportunities of their own in the second half to break the deadlock, but the likes of Troy Parrott and Brad Potts couldn’t quite find the elusive opener.

Ryan Lowe opted to make three changes from the midweek draw with Luton Town, as Ben Woodburn, Liam Delap and Ryan Ledson came in to start.

It wasn’t a first half blessed with goalmouth action, but PNE did get away with one somewhat in the 16th minute. A loose backpass from Jordan Storey was intercepted by Dimitrios Pelkas and his dink over Freddie Woodman was a matter of inches away from finding Oscar Estupiñán in the area, who would have been able to tap into an empty goal.

North End’s first attempt came five minutes later when Delap tried his luck from a tight angle inside the box, but he could only find the side netting with a powerful effort.

Woodman tipped wide to deny Estupiñán in the 40th minute, before coming up with a fantastic reflex save in the first minute of added time to keep out Greg Docherty, who had bulldozed his way through the area.

Two changes were made at the break for PNE, with Parrott and Bambo Diaby entering the fray, in place of Delap and Jordan Storey.

Just two minutes into the half, Woodman had to come up with a great double save, firstly to stick out a right boot to deny Alfie Jones, and then saving Pelkas’ follow-up effort.

Substitute Parrott had a huge opportunity to break the deadlock on 54 minutes, as Cannon ran the channel and produced a good ball into the box for his strike partner, but the Irishman fired a first-time strike just wide of goal.

Brad Potts then could have opened the scoring himself just a minute later as the ball kindly fell his way just outside the six-yard box, however his left-footed volley flew over the bar.

PNE certainly seemed to have the momentum from that point, but they couldn’t find a winning goal, as they were limited to long-range attempts from skipper Alan Browne, which were both sent wide.

Hull City enjoyed a late spell of pressure themselves, with a series of corners and free-kicks, but the North End defence stood strong to leave East Yorkshire with a point.

Hull City line-up: Ingram; Christie, Jones, McLoughlin, Greaves; Simons, Docherty, Tufan; Longman (Ebiowei, 65), Estupiñán (Tetteh, 76), Pelkas (Slater, 65). Subs not used: Darlow, Coyle, Elder, Woods.

PNE line-up: Woodman; Storey (Diaby, 45), Cunningham, Hughes (Lindsay, 36); Potts, Ledson, Browne, Woodburn (Johnson, 74), Fernández; Delap (Parrott, 45), Cannon. Subs not used: Cornell, Brady, Onomah.

Attendance: 17,776.

Referee: Mr S Allison.
