Meet the opposition

Preston are currently 14th in the Sky Bet Championship with 40 points from their 31 games so far.

Former City manager Alex Neil is at the currently at the helm at Deepdale after joining the Lancashire side in July 2017.

It's been and up-and-down campaign for Neil's men, reflected in their mixed bag of results. They began the season with just one win from their opening 11 league games but managed to string a nine-game unbeaten run together through October and November.

Their form dipped again through Christmas but since their FA Cup defeat to Doncaster Rovers on January 6, they've not lost in five games, winning three of them.

Last time the two sides met was back in August when late goals from Teemu Pukki and Alex Tettey, with an stunning half-volley from the edge of the area, helped the Canaries pick up a 2-0 win, their first three points of the season.
