It’s do or die time for Preston North End as they head to take on Swansea City in a crucial Championship clash tonight.
Saturday’s defeat at Millwall was a setback in PNE’s chase of a top-six finish.
Tuesday’s results didn’t go badly as Millwall lost and Sunderland only drew, so PNE really need to come up with a win this evening.
Swansea hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for PNE in recent memory and Ryan Lowe must try to find a win from somewhere.
Lowe goes with Freddie Woodman in goal as usual, with the former Newcastle United ace searching for an 18th clean sheet of the season.
It’s a back three as usual for PNE tonight as Jordan Storey, Liam Lindsay and Andrew Hughes start once again.
Brad Potts and Alvaro Fernandez will line up as the wing backs with the Spaniard coming back in for Robbie Brady.
There is a change in midfield as Josh Onomah drops out of the side for Ryan Ledson.
The former Everton man joins Ben Whiteman and Daniel Johnson in midfield.
Liam Delap is handed an unexpected start, partnering Tom Cannon in the PNE attack.
Ali McCann makes a return from injury this evening and takes a spot on the North End bench.
Dai Cornell, Bambo Diaby, Brady, McCann, Onomah, Ben Woodburn and Troy Parrott make up the rest of the PNE substitutes.
Swansea City starting XI: Fisher; Latibeaudiere, Cabango, Darling, Wood, Manning; Allen, Grimes; Cooper, Cullen, Piroe.
Swansea City substitutes: Sondergaard, Fulton, Ntcham, Paterson, Cundle, Whittaker, Walsh.
