The Lilywhites host Boro on New Year’s Day looking to get a win and return to the top six in the Championship against Jonathan Woodgate’s in-form Teesiders.
 
The game up at the Riverside at the beginning of October saw the sides share a point, despite Josh Harrop giving the visitors a first half lead.
 
Three wins on the bounce over the festive period have lifted the spirits at Middlesbrough and have been a reward for manager Woodgate’s faith in the talented group of young players at his disposal.
 
North End boss Alex Neil will hope to be able to recall experience to his side, with David Nugent (eye injury) and Patrick Bauer (virus) having missed the last game of 2019 against Reading on Sunday.
