The midweek first round clash at the One Call Stadium comes three days after the opening Championship fixture of the season against Hull City.

Last year the sides met at the same stage of the competition at Deepdale, North End winning 4-0 with goals from Tom Barkhuizen, Sean Maguire, Patrick Bauer and Josh Harrop.

They beat Derby County 2-1 at Pride Park in the second round before bowing out to Brighton.
