North End’s £2.10 charge for a cup of tea is not the cheapest in the division but nor is it the most expensive.

A brew at Burton is just £1.30, while at the other end of the scale, Fulham and Bristol City charge £2.50.

Cups of tea at seven other grounds are also pricier than at Deepdale, with three charging the same.

The cheapest brew in British football is 80p at Forfar Athletic.
