Preston North End will be looking to mark the city’s Guild celebrations with a win this weekend as they prepare to face Swindon Town on Sunday afternoon.

North End head into the game unbeaten in their first three home games of the season, and will be looking to record their first league win of the season. 

Meanwhile, visitors Swindon, managed by Paulo Di Canio, have quickly adapted to life in League One following their promotion last season, and remain unbeaten so far.
