For the Lilywhites, manager Alex Neil has signed a new three-year contract, whilst the visitors suffered relegation at the weekend, despite their best efforts over the past few months.

But the Tractor Boys make the lengthy Bank Holiday trip to the north west looking to finish the season with some pride and momentum, as they look to bounce straight back to the second tier at the first time of asking.

For PNE, they too will be looking for momentum, with four days to go, the manager will want to learn everything he can about his young squad before they head off on their summer break to rest and recover ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The game is also 'Retro Day', being organised in aid of the Gary Parkinson Trust, with a number of former players at the game, plus Gary and his family our guests of honour, more information can be found in the article links below.
