Ahead of the Friday night clash, we hear from a Preston fan to fill us in on the opposition
We travel to Preston to get things back under way after yet more international football. We spoke to PNE fan Dan Wilson who answered the big questions.
You`re in mid-table, how would you rate your season far and how has Alex Neil got on since he came in?
The season started well with only one defeat in 11 and the defence was the best in the division. Since the 12th game we`ve started picking up horrendous injuries, all in defence. This made us vulnerable and the reserve players aren’t cutting it. We`ve lost four on the bounce which is concerning.
What should we expect from you tactically?
Hopefully a couple of defenders back. And with the international break we should have more energy about us. Pace is one aspect to expect from PNE.
Which Preston player should we be looking out for?
Player to watch is Tom Barkhuizen. He is a winger / striker he has pace and is a good finisher.
What is your score prediction?
Score prediction is difficult. I’ll be optimistic and say 2-1 PNE, but it will be fine margins. Bolton are in decent form.
