It’s the 46th and final game of the extended 2019/20 season on Wednesday night, with North End heading to face Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
Whilst some may see this as a ‘dead rubber’, there is no such thing in professional football, with the hosts looking to impress a potential new manager and the Lilywhites looking to finish with back-to-back wins and carry that momentum into the new season.
PNE will be looking to continue their excellent form in Bristol, having won on their last five visits to the Robin’s home venue, the last three all ending 2-1.
Lee Johnson was replaced by assistant head coach Dean Holden over the last few games and he too will be hoping for a positive end to his spell in charge of the hosts – if it proves to be the last one.
And with the new season date to be announced and pre-season likely to only be a few weeks away the teams will be aiming to end with a positive.
