Bolton Wanderers vs Preston North End Match Preview

2 March 2018

‘Preston fans are the best, they’re the Gentry’, the immortal words of Alan Ball Senior back in the early 1970s and this weekend well over 3,500 Lilywhites will make the short trip down the M61 to celebrate the lives of those North Enders who are no longer with us.

Ticket Information: Bolton Wanderers

If that is the appetiser, the main course is a local derby with plenty at stake. North End are looking to get back to winning ways after only their second defeat in 18 games.

Their away record has been excellent, but the home form of their hosts at the Macron Stadium has also been good of late and it will no doubt be a hard fought clash of two sides looking for all three points.

For Alex Neil, he has options available to him for the first time in a number of weeks and as the season reaches its climax, with 12 games to go, there will be nothing other than three points as the target against the Wanderers.
