Tough place to go as Alex Neil has his team well drilled for pressing football.  

 

Westwood

 

Iorfa

Lees

Borner

Fox

 

Lee

Luongo

Bannan

 

Odubajo

Rhodes

Harris

 

Subs:

Dawson

Bates

Palmer

Pelupessy

Reach

FF

Nuhiu

 

 

Give Hutch and Fletcher a rest to avoid injury. 

 

PNE play down the right a lot so Moses can help out Iorfa.  Moses also helps with a high press.

Fletcher has to start for me in this system. 

 

I’m just concerned with his fitness but I’d agree if that wasn’t an issue.

I think he's looked fitter this year than any other time since he joined us.

If he's feeling a bit tired id be more tempted to let him have a day off training and go for bob about in the swimming pool

Wait and see injury news. Reach and Iorfa might be doubts.

 

If not, picking the 18 is really tough, let alone 11.

In every Deepdale game in recent years, PNE man mark Bannan to stop him controlling the game. 

 

They high press us into long balls and win the midfield battle via high energy. 

 

 

We counter that with Lee and Luongo - high energy possession players who benefit if Bannan is marked. 

 

Harris and Odubajo high press and try to get balls into Rhodes. 

 

Nuhiu has played well against the PNE system in past years so I would bring him on late. 

 

FF has really struggled against PNE so not sure if he gets on.

What do you call a cork in a swimming pool?

 

Bob.

I was saying the same thing Saturday.

 

Also, tonight he never looked, #####d! Chased down his work most of the game.

Thought he was good.  Have their niggle number 6 as good as he got.

Good unselfish head back across for the goal.

Managerless Preston will be looking to get one over us, after their manager joins us.

I'd rest Reach and Murphy, and bring in Lee and Luongo. But not sure how that would set up.

Westwood

Palmer, Lees, Borner, Fox

Lee, Hutch, Luongo

Reach, Fletch, Harris

 

Solid defensive platform, high energy / tough tackling midfield and mixture of pace/work rate up top.

Odubajo as one of the front 3? No from me. Much rather keep Murphy in there. Luongo should start.
