Two sides who first met in the inaugural Football League season go head-to head for the 101st time in the competition when the Lilywhites take on the Baggies in Monday’s live Sky Sports Championship fixture.
The visitors have changed head coach since our last clash, with Slaven Bilić having taken over in the summer and hit the ground running, with the Baggies topping the Championship tree ahead of the weekend’s fixtures.
They come into the game eight unbeaten, with four straight wins, but North End will be looking to continue their impressive home form, with manager Alex Neil hopeful of being able to recall a number of the players who missed the midweek trip to Hull City.
This is the first of four game featuring PNE on the Sky Sports cameras in December, with the FA Cup draw being made the same night, in the run up to kick-off, so it begins one of the busiest periods of the season.
Fans are reminded that everyone is being asked to bring their scarf and their voice, with the fan led campaign also seeing the return of the famous ‘wolf’ flag from the 1990s unveiled and surfed across the Alan Kelly Town End, so don’t miss out on what should be a great night under the floodlights at Deepdale.
