Supporters can get to and from the stadium by using the club’s shuttle bus service which runs from Leyland through Bamber Bridge on its way to Deepdale. Return tickets cost £6 on-board and timings are as follows:

The club are also supporting Level Playing Field’s ‘Unite For Access’ campaign this weekend, with more details to be announced soon on how the occasion is being marked.

Who’s Available?

Duane Holmes and Kian Best are back in training and available for the weekend after both missing the whole of February.

Robbie Brady, who was absent through a knock last Friday, has returned to training and if he gets through the final two days of the week, he could feature against Hull.

Brad Potts and Ched Evans are the only two who will definitely miss out.

Opposition Focus


Hull City have been in and around the top six all season long, and they currently occupy the final Play-Off position heading into the final dozen matches.

Their January transfer business has seen them really kick on in recent matches, having added Premier League quality in Liverpool’s Fábio Carvalho, Burnley’s Anass Zaroury, and Luton Town’s Ryan Giles, among others.

Liam Rosenior’s side are only three points from equaling last season’s final tally, and they’ll be hoping they can do enough to stay within those Play-Off places for a shot at returning to the Premier League for the first time since the 2016/17 campaign.

A Recent Clash

North End’s last victory over Hull City came in February 2022, courtesy of a clever finish from Cameron Archer.
