Preston vs Bristol City team news

Preston

Preston North End made the trip to promotion hopefuls Sunderland on New Year's Day, where two first-half goals proved enough for the home side to secure all three points. Preston failed to bounce back from that defeat when they travelled to Chelsea in the FA Cup, going down 4-0 in the end.

Robert Brady is the main injury concern for the hosts heading into a tricky home game against Bristol City.

Predicted Lineup: Woodman (GK), Hughes, Lindsay, Storey, Potts, Browne, Whiteman, McCann, Frøkjær-Jensen, Evans & Millar

Bristol City

The Robins slipped to a narrow defeat at home to Millwall last time out, just when it looked like the game was going to end all square. Neither side managed to find a breakthrough in the opening ninety minutes but in stoppage-time, Millwall created one last goalscoring opportunity and took it to claim all three points against a visibly deflated Bristol Cty side.

Kal Naismith, Haydon Roberts, Ross McCrorie, Rob Atkinson and Ayman Benarous could all miss the trip to Deepdale due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: O’Leary (GK), Dickie, Vyner, Tanner, Pring, James, Williams, Mehmeti, Knight, Weimann & Conway

Player to Watch: Duane Holmes

USA midfielder Duane Holmes will be hoping to provide the creative spark for Preston this weekend.

The 29-year-old has chipped in with four assists and three goals in the Championship this season, making him one of Preston's key players.

Having made his name at Scunthorpe in League One, Holmes moved to Derby before joining Huddersfield in 2021 but looks to have settled nicely in his first season with Preston North End.
