A place in the third round of the Carabao Cup is at stake on Tuesday night as Preston North End take on Hull City at Deepdale.
The tie, which will be decided by penalties if level after 90 minutes, will be a 7.45pm kick-off and will be the first of three meetings with the Tigers this season – with Grant McCann’s side a Championship rival.
McCann took over from Nigel Adkins in the summer and has had cup success at Deepdale in 2019, as it was his Doncaster Rovers outfit that ended the Lilywhites 2019 FA Cup campaign back in January.
Both sides made wholesale changes in the first round, with 11 changes made by both McCann and Alex Neil as the team dispatched Bradford City and Tranmere Rovers respectively and there is no reason to think that this game will be any different.
Whoever makes it through will be able to see who they get in round three after the televised tie between Lincoln City and Everton on Wednesday night, with the next round ties played the week beginning 23rd September.
