Stoke v Preston North End Match preview
After losing 2-1 to Derby County in their last outing, the Potters would be looking to start the new year on a more positive note. Michael O’Neill’s men have lost three of their last five games in the Championship and need to find their form. They haven’t scored freely either with seven in last eight games showing why they’re in a bit of a fix.
Ryan Lowe’s appointment at PNE has coincided with a three-weak gap due to coronavirus cases. However, North End need to move away as further away from a potential relegation fight as possible. They’ve been woeful away from home, something that has contributed to their 15th place in the league standings.
