To in-form sides meet at Deepdale on Saturday, with Bristol City – unbeaten in seven – visit PR1 in one of the games of the day in the Championship.
North End sit third, a point off the top spot, with the Robins not far behind and Lee Johnson will be looking for his side to continue their run.
The two sides have had plenty of battles in recent seasons, with last year’s clash ending all-square here in Lancashire, with North End taking all three points down at Ashton Gate.
There are familiar faces in the Robins squad with Bailey Wright getting closer to a return after a thigh problem, whilst Josh Brownhill should captain the side, if the Australian doesn’t return to the starting XI.
With three games in a week before the next international break, Alex Neil will be looking for his side to start the trio of fixtures with a positive result and keep the pressure on the top two.
