Sell Out Away Following To Celebrate The Gaffer's Fourth Anniversary

15 February 2017

North End will be supported by over 4,700 travelling PNE fans at the DW Stadium on Saturday 18th February.

The match also marks four years since manager Simon Grayson was appointed at Deepdale, and he will be looking to build on a successful week so far with back to back victories against Brentford and Birmingham City.

To mark the gaffer's anniversary, the club will be providing the travelling supporters with Simon Grayson masks to show their support for the him at the DW Stadium. 

The reverse of the masks will be all yellow, so remember to hold yours up as the team come out of the tunnel to create a sea of yellow in the away end!

Last season saw three derby day victories on the road and Simon and his squad will be looking to continue their winning run against Wigan Athletic on Saturday. 

On the club's gesture to mark his anniversary, Grayson said: "It will be quite scary to see I suppose! It's a nice idea, I'm not sure who is going to get the blame for this!

"There will be one or two left on the mantelpiece by the parents I think to keep the kids away from the fire.

"But it's nice that the club have done it, though I think it might be best to use the yellow as opposed to the face throughout the course of the match!" 

The Latics have also asked the club to inform the travelling fans that there will be no alcohol served at half-time on away end concourses at the DW Stadium.

A reminder that if you missed out on a ticket, you can listen to the game live on PNE PlayerHD where Jonathan Breeze will be joined by Ian Bryson from 2.30pm. 

Coach travel is still available for those who have a ticket, and is priced at just £10 for all. Coaches will leave both Deepdale and Leyland at 1pm.
