In The Dressing Room

New signings Liam Delap and Tom Cannon will be available for selection and could make their PNE debuts in this fixture.

Manager Ryan Lowe confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Emil Riis is set to have an operation next week, with the Danish forward having suffered an ACL injury which will keep him out for the remainder of the season.

Fellow forward Troy Parrott may not be too far off, while Sean Maguire is also back on the grass with the squad, but both will be monitored and managed.

Brad Potts should be available despite an issue with his foot, while late decisions will be made on Ben Whiteman and Ched Evans who both have minor injuries.

A Look At Our Visitors


Newly-appointed Norwich City boss David Wagner will be hoping he can add another promotion out of the Championship to his CV during his time with the Canaries.

Replacing Dean Smith as head coach last week, Wagner has inherited a side who were tipped to bounce straight back to the Premier League after relegation last season, but it hasn’t quite panned out that way yet as they currently sit 11th in the table.

They are still within touching distance of the Play-Offs, though, and the new Norwich boss has good memories of them, having steered Huddersfield Town to the top flight via the end-of-season lottery back in 2017.

One To Watch


Given what he’s done in previous seasons, everybody is well aware of the threat Teemu Pukki poses, but 22-year-old Josh Sargent is someone people perhaps don’t know as much about.

The United States international, who played three times at the Qatar World Cup, is the Canaries’ top scorer so far this season, with nine goals to his name in Championship action.

Formerly of Werder Bremen, Sargent has played much of his football from a wide position under Dean Smith this season, but new boss Wagner has indicated that the American is more likely to be used as a centre forward from now on.

Match Officials


Stephen Martin is the man in the middle for this fixture, for what will be his first PNE match of the season.

The experienced official last took charge of a North End match in March 2022 when the Lilywhites were beaten at the home of Luton Town.

So far this season, Martin has been the main official in 13 matches, showing 48 yellow cards and two reds in those games.

Match Reports

Match Report: PNE 0 Norwich City 4

14 January 2023

Preston North End were beaten 4-0 at Deepdale by Norwich City, with Kieran Dowell and Teemu Pukki each claiming a brace for the visitors.

Pukki got David Wagner’s side going on 13 minutes before Dowell netted twice to make it three within the first half hour.

After debutants Liam Delap and Tom Cannon saw opportunities saved by Tim Krul in the opening stages of the second period, Pukki had the final say when he made it four on 69 minutes.

Cannon, brought in on loan from Everton earlier this week, was one of two changes made from the Emirates FA Cup victory over Huddersfield Town, with Jordan Storey the other man to come in as he returned from injury.

After a relatively bright start to the game from North End, the game soon turned, starting with the opening goal on 13 minutes. PNE failed to clear their lines and were punished for it when Pukki stroked the ball into the far corner to break the deadlock.

Within three minutes, the visitors doubled their lead, as a clever backheel by Max Aarons found Dowell in the area, and he opened up his left boot to send an effort into the top corner off the woodwork.

Things got worse on 28 minutes when a defence-splitting pass made its way through for Pukki to run onto and, as Andrew Hughes came across and Freddie Woodman rushed out, that opened space for Dowell at the back post, who tapped home into an empty goal once found.

Action was taken by manager Ryan Lowe as he made a double change on the half-hour mark, bringing on Álvaro Fernández and Delap – for his debut – in place of Ali McCann and Ben Woodburn.

PNE’s best chance before the break fell to Cannon, following a poor clearance from goalkeeper Tim Krul, and the forward took the ball down well, but his powerful shot was blocked at close range by Kenny McClean.

There was a huge chance for Delap on debut just 30 seconds into the second half, when Cannon cleverly turned the ball round the corner into his path, but the Manchester City loanee was denied by Krul.

After Josh Sargent then missed two opportunities at the other end, Delap returned the favour for Cannon, but again Krul came out on top, this time tipping the strike onto the crossbar.

Freddie Woodman then rounded off an action-packed five-minute spell by producing a great stop to prevent Pukki from making it four from a one-on-one situation.

Pukki came out on top in the 69th minute, though, when a long ball over the top wasn’t dealt with by Fernández, and the Finland international rolled a shot under Woodman to round off the scoring.

Troy Parrott came on to make his long-awaited return from injury – which he incidentally suffered in the reserve Norwich fixture – but it was too late for him to make an impact, as the game ended 4-0.

PNE line-up: Woodman; Diaby (Brady, 73), Storey, Lindsay, Hughes; Ledson, McCann (Fernández, 30); Browne, Woodburn (Delap, 30), Johnson (Parrott, 73); Cannon. Subs not used: Cornell, Cunningham, Bauer.

Norwich City line-up: Krul; Aarons (Sorensen, 79), Omobamidele. Hanley, Giannoulis;  McClean, Sara (Gibbs, 72); Dowell (Sinani, 72), Hernández (Núñez, 79); Sargent, Pukki (Idah, 72). Subs not used: Gunn, McCallum.

Attendance: 15,510 (996 Norwich City fans).

Referee: Mr S Martin.
