Ticket News

Ticket Information: Bristol City

7 November 2018
The Lilywhites face Lee Johnson’s side, looking to extend their positive run of results against the Robins in recent seasons, but know it will be a tough test against a side who have again started the season brightly.
 
Manager Alex Neil will have to make at least one change for the trip, with goalkeeper Chris Maxwell suspended for the game, with Declan Rudd set to return to the starting XI for the first time since September.
 
The hosts are likely to include one former North Ender, in Josh Brownhill, in the squad to face his former employers, but their skipper and former PNE favourite Bailey Wright is still on the road back to full fitness after a summer operation.
 
Another player with both sides on his CV is Callum Robinson, who has a good record against City and will look to continue that before he heads away with Ireland for two games during the break.
