Won't be attending this one, we only received 1,289 tickets and they sold pretty sharply. Luckily it's on Sky.

Not sure where we stand on the international front but I think we will be without Bailey Wright, Callum Robinson, Scott Wiseman and Alan Browne. Although that's not 100% yet and i think we will keep our cards close to our chest about it.

Will be a tough game and I can't see many goals in it, a draw wouldn't be a disaster but a win would be a massive boost. I'd take a scabby 1-0 win all day long.

Possible team:

Johnstone
Woods, Huntington, Clarke, Laird
Humphrey, Welsh, Johnson, Gallagher
Garner, Beckford

Stuckmann, Buchanan, King, Kilkenny, Little, K. Davies, Ebanks-Blake​

So why hasn't your game been called off if you will be missing players?

It's on Sky so we've committed to playing.

We've got a big squad, bit of a slap in the face to the rest of our players if we're calling games off because we're missing a few.

We're missing Conor McLaughlin as well. Thought we'll lose but as you're missing a few it could work in our favour and we might sneek a draw.

Should be a sell out 5327 and our biggest crowd ever (apart from 6150 v Rochdale in 1965)

I don't think swapping Robinson & Wright for Woods & Humphrey weakens us personally, as it allows Tom Clarke to play in the centre, it just means a slightly different system. Could be a few surprises in our team sheet though.

This is a real banana skin for Preston, similar to us when we go to Yeovil or Cheltenham.

As long as we win, do whatever you like guys!

Surely not considering it's on tele..

My mate text me to see if I fancied the home ends yesterday, i'd rather watch it in the pub though rather than sit on my hands all game

Theyd probably let you in the away end to be honest the bit to the side where everyone stands round the pitch is more than capable of getting a load more in.

Yeah maybe, i'm happy enough settling for the pub now though, I was tempted but i've spent a shit load on North End this month and a bit, could do with a weekend off

I reckon Robinson and Wright will be available.

Grayson:
"We have tried to keep a settled team and tried to get that continuity going and there is a possibility we might get one or two back early from international duty. We have asked whether we can get them back if they are not going to be involved over the Sunday and Monday games, but we are in the hands of other people."

Probably a narrow away win but a draw possible. Think if Preston don't win here they will struggle to catch us as they still have Bradford, Rochdale and Swindon to play (plus us). Not an easy run-in when they will probably need to get to around 93 point to finish above us.

Nah mate, you won't win again this season.

Yeah, fuck it, we're winning tomorrow, probably 3-0.

Garner will chest one in while tea-bagging their keeper.

91 should be enough as long as we don't lose to Swindon....
Strangely enough 96 points would guarantee us promotion, but 97 wouldn't.

And yes, another glory-hunter has crawled out of the woodwork!

Jack King starting is a surprise, i'm guessing he's in there for his height at set pieces

The first part of my predtiction was correct. King will score in the 30th, 68th and 73rd minute to complete his hatrick and my prediction :p
