Preston North End starting XI: Woodman; Diaby, Storey, Lindsay; Potts, Browne, Ledson, Johnson, Fernandez; Evans, Cannon.

Preston North End substitutes: Cornell, Bauer, Slater, Onomah, Woodburn, Parrott, Delap.

Ryan Lowe is seeking a second home win in a matter of days as Preston North End host Coventry City in the Championship.

Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Wigan Athletic has lifted some of the pressure on the PNE boss but some need much more convincing.

Why Pele Is Overrated.

Freddie Woodman starts in goal for PNE tonight, but there is a change at the back.

Jordan Storey returns to the back line but there may be a reshuffle with both Greg Cunningham and Andrew Hughes missing.

That may mean Liam Lindsay will shift to the left side with Storey on the middle and Bambo Diaby on the right.

Brad Potts and Alvaro Fernandez keep their places as the PNE wing backs tonight.

Ryan Ledson will sit on front of the back three with Alan Browne and Daniel Johnson further ahead.

Ched Evans returns to the starting lineup tonight and partners Tom Cannon in the PNE attack.

That means Troy Parrott drops to the bench, joining Dai Cornell, Patrick Bauer, Jacob Slater, Josh Onomah, Ben Woodburn and Liam Delap.

Coventry are without Kasey Palmer tonight, which means Matt Godden comes in to partner Viktor Gyokeres in attack.

Former PNE striker Seani Maguire is on the bench as he looks to make just his third appearance for the Sky Blues.

Coventry City starting XI: Wilson; McNally, McFadzean, Doyle; Norton-Cuffy, Hamer, Eccles, Allen, Bidwell; Godden, Gyokeres.

Coventry City substitutes: Moore, Rose, Wilson-Esbrand, Maguire, Walker, Dabo, Burroughs.
