PNE v Aston Villa
There was one change to the Preston North End starting XI for the Championship clash with Aston Villa at Deepdale.
Aiden McGeady returned to the side after being a late substitute in the midweek draw at Birmingham City, with Chris Humphrey dropping out.
The formation switched from a 3-5-2 to a flat back four, Alex Baptiste moving from the centre of defence to play at right-back.
John Welsh was set to play a deep-sitting midfield role, allowing Ben Pearson and former Villa man Daniel Johnson to push further forward.
Paul Gallagher returned to the bench after missing the Birmingham game with a deadleg.
PNE: Maxwell, Baptiste, Clarke, Wright, Cunningham, Welsh, McGeady, Pearson, Johnson, Robinson, Hugill. Subs: Browne, Makienok, Gallagher, Doyle, Pringle, Huntington, Lindegaard.
