Hull City vs Preston North End Match Preview

19 October 2018

North End’s last trip to the KCOM Stadium was a memorable one, as a late Callum Robinson header gave them all three points and set the tone for the club’s adventurous approach last season.

Ticket Information: Hull City

18 October 2018
We return to Hull City this weekend to face Nigel Adkins’ side in the first game after the latest international break, looking to build some momentum after the pre-break boost of a thumping derby day win over Wigan Athletic at Deepdale.
 
Manager Alex Neil has options available to him, with Sean Maguire getting another 30 minutes in Ireland’s UEFA Nations League clash with Wales in Dublin on Tuesday night and the likes of Ryan Ledson and Paul Huntington – who missed the win over Paul Cook’s Latics – both being fully fit for the trip to Humberside.
 
Our hosts at the weekend will themselves be looking to gain some initiative of their own and will also hope to have key players available for selection once again, with attack-minded Evandro set to return for the first time in over a month.
 
The wait for last season’s win over the Tigers in Hull was 25 years, but the Lilywhites will be hoping the wait this time is just 12 months, with the first of three games in a week, with a large points haul targeted, aiming for it to start with three on Saturday.
 
Ticket Information
Well over 1,000 North End fans are set to head across the Pennines to the east coast to see the Lilywhites take on Hull City this weekend and you could still join them!
