Match Preview: Blackburn Rovers v Preston North End

9 September 2014

North End will blend youth with experience against Blackburn on Tuesday afternoon.

The two face each other in the first round of the Lancashire FA Senior Cup, and the Lilywhites will give several Academy players the chance to impress, along with more senior established players getting some valuable minutes under their belts.

Kyel Reid will hope to see a full 90 minutes of action as he continues his rehabilitation which saw him feature as a second half substitute against Shrewsbury Town in last week’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Shrewsbury Town.

That night’s North End goalscorer Jordan Hugill will lead the line for PNE and Nick Anderton will start alongside senior pros Thorsten Stuckmann, Paul Huntington and Ben Davies.

There is also a scattering of Academy players ready to try and prove their worth with four of Nick Harrison’s U18s starting.

PNE lineup:
1 Thorsten Stuckmann
2 Clive Smith
3 Nick Anderton
4 David Fox
5 Paul Huntington
6 Ben Davies
7 Luke Pritchard
8 Bradley Wicks
9 Jordan Hugill
10 Eddie Dsane
11 Kyel Reid

12 Bradley Roscoe
13 Ross Dalton (GK)
