Whilst it has been nine years since we locked horns, clashes between the sides go back to the first ever Football League season in 1888, with this set to be the 112th competitive meeting between the Lilywhites and the Baggies.
 
North End have a tremendous league record at Deepdale, in fact West Brom haven’t won a league game in PR1 since Sir Tom Finney’s playing days and Alex Neil’s men will home to continue that with a positive result and performance this weekend.
 
There are plenty of good stories this weekend, with Darren Moore having interesting memories of his time here, of course involved in ‘that’ incident with Paul Raynor in the 1994 Play-Off campaign and the return of popular figures Sam Johnstone – a Wembley winner North End and Tyrone Mears, part of the successful side of the mid-noughties.
 
That gives plenty of reasons to get down to Deepdale. With over 3,000 Baggies fans heading up the M6, there should be a bumper crowd and a good atmosphere, so get down and be a part of the action.
