The last time the Lilywhites were victorious against Middlesbrough on their own patch, came with ‘Rocket’ Ronnie Hildersley’s famous FA Cup goal at Ayresome Park in January 1987, so a win in any competition against Boro has been a while in coming.

Tony Pulis’ hosts occupy fifth place in the Championship table currently, sitting seven points above Alex Neil’s men, so a win for the visitors could close the gap, making this a game to savour.

The two teams have already played twice this season already, ending 2-2 and 1-1 in respective Carabao Cup and league games at Deepdale back in the Autumn and this third encounter should be no less close.
