Last updated: Saturday, 29 February, 2020, 15:03

Full Time: Fulham 2-0 PNE

Preston were unlucky to go behind, David Nugent heading the ball on at the near post, Sterling the ball into his own net.

Fulham got their second at the death, PNE pushing for an equaliser at a corner, Aboubakar Kamara was able to break with the ball, covering most of the pitch before squaring to Cavaleiro who wasn't able to capitalise, but Kamara was.

The day has well and truly begun...

Not a common occurrence

This is only the fourth time PNE have played on February 29 in 4,996 games.

They have lost to Bury, beat Sunderland and drawn against Reading, in that order, before today. 

Alex Neil, as always, has choice to make today but he will also have Tuesday's defeat to West Bromwich Albion in mind.

PNE were poor in the week and whether David Nugent can play twice in a week is something worth thinking about, and he missed a couple in the week.

Could he opt for more pace in the forward line?

PNE Starting XI: Rudd, Fisher, Bauer, Davies, Hughes, Browne, Johnson, Potts, Barkhuizen, Nugent, Maguire.

PNE subs: Ripley, Clarke, Huntington, Ledson, Harrop, Sinclair, Stockley. 

Ben Pearson misses out today through a knock, Brad Potts comes into the starting XI.

Paul Gallagher also misses out on the squad as does Joe Rafferty.

North End haven't completed a league double over Fulham since the 1994/95 season, they have the opportunity to do that today but will have to do it without arguably their best player.
