Both sides sit in mid-table, looking for a strong end to the season, with Rovers have done well to establish themselves after bouncing straight back to the Championship last season. Some impressive results on the way had them on the verge of the Play-Off spots until a tough recent run of results.

Meanwhile, February manager of the month nominee, Alex Neil, has taken his side on a nine game unbeaten run heaving across the M65 looking to make it double figures and keep the pressure on the teams above them in the league.

PNE will be backed by a travelling support well in excess of 7,000 fans, which should make for a scintillating atmosphere in one of the Championship’s games of the day this Saturday.
