Match Preview: Preston North End vs Bolton Wanderers

17 November 2017

The Lilywhites return to Deepdale after the final international break of 2017 with their most local visitors of the season heading to PR1 – Phil Parkinson’s Bolton Wanderers.

We have not beaten the Trotters at home since 1992, however, there have actually only been three games in that period, the last being the goalless draw on Halloween 2015, probably one to forget, when the Sky Sports cameras also rolled into town.

The visitors have been in good form of late and are five games unbeaten, knowing that a win will take them out of the bottom three for the first time this season.

The Lilywhites will be hoping that the two week break has allowed some of the many injury problems to clear up, however, seven defenders and two strikers could well be ruled out at this stage.

This is the only local ‘derby’ of the season and a good crowd is expected, with over 3,000 making the short trip up the M61, so a good atmosphere should be there for all who get down to Deepdale.
