On Tuesday night, the Lilywhites will have a match official taking charge of them for the first time.
Yorkshire referee Tom Nield will be man in charge for the first time at Deepdale, in his second year on the EFL list of officials.
Last season, he took charge of 29 games, issuing 65 cautions and two red cards, with one of those games being Morecambe’s FA Cup home win over National League outfit Hartlepool in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup.
His first game of this season Nield took charge of Carlisle United’s 2-2 home draw with Northampton Town at Brunton Park at the weekend.
The match official will be assisted by Simon Clayton and Danny Gratton, whilst the fourth official will be Gary Hilton.
