Will Preston North End gain three points at Stoke City?

Potters boss Michael O'Neill has transformed the side, who have claimed a number of eye-catching results, including a 1-0 victory over league leaders West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns.

Preston North End will arrive at the Bet365 Stadium in good spirits too, having dispatched local rivals Wigan Athletic at the weekend to continue their play-off push.

The Lilywhites will have to play very well to claim all three points in Stoke, in what is sure to be a difficult game.
