After controversial penalty decisions, both Tuesday night’s sides will go into the game looking to get the rub of the green and the three points.
Fulham felt they should have had a very late penalty in Saturday’s home defeat to Bristol City, whilst the Lilywhites have had consecutive decisions go against them in the last two games.
The late defeat to West Brom eight days ago ended the unbeaten home record, but that proud Deepdale run of results will be something Alex Neil and his team hope to return to with a positive result against Scott Parker’s side.
The Cottagers, until the weekend’s result, had seemed to have found their groove and have a squad still packed full with the majority of their Premier League assembled players of quality, including the likes of Tom Cairney and previous PNE nemesis Aleksandar Mitrović.
Closer to home, the manager will be hoping to be able to recall some of the key members of his squad that have been missing in recent weeks, such as Patrick Bauer, Ben Davies, Darnell Fisher, Paul Gallagher and Daniel Johnson.
