Preston North End make their third of four trips to the capital in the regular season this weekend as they take on Scott Parker’s Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Following an entertaining 2-1 win over the Cottagers at Deepdale back in December, the Lilywhites are looking to do the double over their hosts for the first time since the 1994/95 season, a year David Beckham scored against Fulham – on the weekend his Inter Miami play their first MLS game!
Selection dilemmas for Alex Neil were helped on Thursday when an FA Regulatory Panel decided unanimously to rescind the red card given to Darnell Fisher at West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday, meaning he is available for selection.
Fulham will, however, have been buoyed by their 95th minute 1-0 win over Swansea City on Wednesday night and the adrenaline should help the fact they have one less recovery day before Saturday’s meeting.
With the two sides at the opposite ends of the Play-Off positions, with just four points between them, it is no surprise that this is the main game on QUEST on Saturday night and it should be some atmosphere, with Lilywhites fans snapping up the full 2,000 allocation in a matter of days and a couple of boat rides to get there adding to carnival spirit!
