North End will look for their first away win of the season when they travel to the second city, to face Harry Redknapp's Birmimgham City at St Andrews on Saturday afternoon.
A sell out away following from the club's initial 1,500 allocation is expected to descend on the Blues as Alex Neil's men look to cement a place in the top six with their second victory of the week, having beaten then league leaders Cardiff City at Deepdale on Tuesday night.
The manager should have the luxury of welcoming back Daniel Johnson into his plans, meaning some tough decisions will have to be made on team selection, after an excellent performance from all those involved against the Bluebirds.
The home side made a number of significant new recruits in the summer transfer window and the experience of Redknapp will likely mould his squad into a force this season and the Lilywhites will expect a very tough game.
The last two seasons this game has ended as a 2-2 draw and both matches provided real entertainment for supporters; let's hope the same can be said this weekend.
