Ticket Information: Fulham

It will be the division’s game of the day, with North End – themselves having lost just two of their last 20 Championship games, now just a point outside the Play-Off positions after doing the double over Bristol City with Tuesday night’s 2-1 victory over Lee Johnson’s Robins.

Manager Alex Neil has a fully fit squad available to select from for the first time in his time as manager of the club and he is looking for a big crowd off the field to boost his side as they go in search of a win that could take them inside the top six as the number of games remaining clicks into single figures.

The same weekend 23 years ago the Lilywhites also entertain the Cottagers and a certain David Beckham scored a stunning free kick as Gary Peters’ side recorded a thrilling 3-2 success against the west London outfit.

An equally entertaining game with a similar result would certainly make people sit up and take note of North End, but it will be one of the toughest tests of recent weeks and months against Slavisa Jokanovic’s in-form outfit.
