Gutted I can't make it today, due to family reasons. Enjoy it those who are there. Be watching it closely on I Follow

That's probably the team I would have picked, though I may have started with Stockley and replaced him with Maguire on the hour. Very strong bench

In the prediction league I've gone for a 2-0 away win but I've a feeling we'll tear them a new one today. Somebody will get a hammering and it could be Bolton.⚽⚽⚽⚽⚽

Hopefully show the necessary hunger and attitude required to return with 3 points and close the gap between us and the teams above us.
No room for complacency. Come on Preston onwards and upwards!

Disappointed to see Barky in for Stockley. All the clamour for a new striker, and AN gives him 4 games in which he's done fine, before dropping him.

no match can ever be taken for granted. If our work rate drops weve seen too many times what can happen.

surprised Stockleys been dropped but I trust the gaffer.

Good team selection, hope it works for Maguire and bring Stockley on later, just hope to hell Rudd doesn't get injured. COYW or yellows or greens

I don't think he has dropped him. I think he has looked at the opposition and thought we have a better chance with nippy runners and Stockley as plan B. Different plans for different games.

Absolutely it's a squad game. Have to guard against complacency today. Will take an almighty effort even to reach the top ten but we are capable.
