Preview: Preston v Leeds United

Preston awaits, they have enjoyed a positive start to the season and currently sit sixth in the Championship. A side who remain unbeaten at home this season and with our current away form, could present a challenge for us.  

However, we will undoubtedly be looking to build on the momentum of Saturday and keep pressure on West Brom who sit top of the league.  

Bielsa has confirmed the same starting XI from the Birmingham game will start meaning no Pablo once again! Bamford will start in attack, despite our league position, it’s evident we need to convert more chances and score more goals. A repeat of last season’s result at Deepdale would be welcomed which saw Bamford score two goals.
