Alex Neil’s side will look for an immediate return to winning ways after their eight-game unbeaten streak came to an end at Reading at the weekend.
However, it will be a far from simple task, with Leeds United – currently occupying the Championship’s second spot – the visitors to Deepdale.
Both sides have had positive starts to the season and will look to improve their own positions in the table with a positive result, Leeds having picked up a 1-0 win over Birmingham City at the weekend.
The Roses clash has produced plenty of goals and talking points in recent seasons and this one will no doubt be an entertaining one for the large crowd expected in PR1, especially given the half-term holidays.
With another big game at the weekend, for both sides, the option of making changes to keep things fresh is there for both Alex Neil and Marcelo Bielsa in the aim of coming out on top.
