In The Dressing Room

Andrew Hughes, who has recently returned to training, will be assessed ahead of the trip to Rotherham.

Liam Lindsay has now served his two-match suspension, while Alan Browne has returned to the training ground after missing Saturday’s game due to the birth of his child.

Daniel Johnson will become the club’s 22nd all-time appearance maker if he plays against the Millers, reaching 328 games in a PNE shirt.

A Look At Our Hosts


Rotherham United have built a bit of a buffer between themselves and the relegation zone in recent weeks, heading into Tuesday night’s game with eight points separating themselves and Blackpool.

Following the departure of Paul Warne early in the season, Matt Taylor arrived from Exeter City, and he has overseen some impressive performances since taking charge – notably an away victory at high-flying Sheffield United and a 4-0 demolition of Blackburn Rovers.

Taylor is looking to do something which no Millers manager has since the 2015/16 campaign by retaining the club’s place in the Championship, having been relegated in their previous three seasons in the second tier, and former PNE men Jordan Hugill and Bailey Wright have been drafted in to help them do so.

One To Watch


Arguably one of the division’s best goalkeepers so far this season, Viktor Johansson has been crucial to the Millers this term.

The 24-year-old comfortably leads the way for saves made this Championship campaign and, with a different man between the sticks, Rotherham could have found themselves in far greater danger than what they are.

Johansson has had to fight for his place in the past, too, having spent a lot of last season on the bench, but he’s been an ever-present so far this term.

Match Officials


Experienced official Stephen Martin will referee Tuesday night’s game, which will be his second PNE fixture of the season.

The previous was a day to forget for North End, losing 4-0 on home turf to Norwich City, while the last victory when Martin was in charge was back in 2020 when the Lilywhites defeated Birmingham City at Deepdale.

So far this campaign, Martin has refereed 15 matches, showing 59 yellow cards and two reds.
