Preston North End vs Derby County Match Preview

31 January 2019

The Lilywhites’ last TV clash with the Rams proved to be decisive in last season’s Play-Off race, so there will be plenty to play for when Sky Sports roll into Deepdale on Friday night.

Ticket Information: Derby County

31 January 2019
That afternoon Tom Lawrence’s free kick was enough to take all three points back to Pride Park, but under the lights Alex Neil’s side will be looking to continue their winning run in front of their own fans.
 
Frank Lampard visits the ground as a manager for the first time; his last appearance here being part of Chelsea’s side that beat Darren Ferguson’s Lilywhites back in January 2009, in the former PNE manager’s first home game.
 
His side progressed to the fifth round of that same competition last weekend, over in East Lancashire, with a 1-0 win over Accrington and they currently occupy one of the Play-Off positions, so it will be a tough test for North End’s improved recent displays and should be a great spectacle for those in attendance and watching around the world.
