Preston vs Swansea Latest News, Team Information, and Lineups

Preston

It has been a while since the last time Preston was in the Premier League and the fans are certainly dreaming about that scenario this season. The team started with two wins and a draw and will look to protect their home field against a tricky opponent. Ben Whiteman, Ched Evans, and Emil Riis Jakobsen are injured.

Expected lineup: Woodman, Lindsay, Hughes, Storey, Ledson, Best, Browne, Potts, Frokjaer-Jensen, Holmes, Keane.

Swansea

The Welsh side could use a little break at this point, especially playing away from home. Swansea is still searching for their first league win of the season. Liam Walsh and Steven Benda are not available for the game this weekend.

Expected lineup: Rushworth, Darling, Cabango, Wood, Patino, Key, Grimes, Fulton, Ashby, Yates, Piroe.

Player to Watch: Mads Frokjaer-Jensen

Preston's biggest signing of the summer, the Danish striker Mads Frokjaer-Jensen arrived from Odense and it seems to gel well with his new teammates. The Dane scored a goal and assisted on another one in his first three league games for Preston while starting every game and spending most of it on the pitch.

Preston started the season well and Frokjaer-Jensen is one of the main reasons for that verdict. A transfer to England is his first experience out of Denmark. He grew up in Odense's academy, and moved through the ranks to break into the main squad. Frokjaer-Jensen scored 18 goals and delivered 16 assists in 120 appearances for his former club.
