Meet the opposition

Preston narrowly missed out on the end of season play-offs last year, finishing seventh and just two points off Derby County in sixth place.

Lilywhites boss Alex Neil is well-known by supporters of the Canaries - he guided City to promotion to the Premier League in 2015, beating Middlesbrough 2-0 in the play-off final at Wembley.

Neil managed to keep hold of most of his prized assets from last season, the exception being full-back Greg Cunningham who joined Cardiff City following their promotion in the summer.

Incomings for Preston in the recent window include Ryan Ledson from Oxford United, Michael Crowe from Ipswich Town, Andrew Hughes from Peterborough United and Lukas Nmecha and Brandon Barker, both on loan from Manchester City.

Preston currently have four points from their opening three league matches and, last time out, were held to a 2-2 draw by recently-relegated Stoke City at Deepdale.
