PNE to face revamped QPR

It will be a new-look Queens Park Rangers side which lines ups against Preston North End tonight following a busy transfer window.

The West London side cashed in on Ebere Eze in the summer, selling the talented midfielder for £19.5m to Crystal Palace.

Some of that money has been reinvested, with eight new signings arriving at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

There have been other departures too, Ryan Manning sold to Swansea for £250,000, while Jordan Hugill’s loan ended.

A slow start to the season for PNe means that there needs to be a response for Alex Neil’s men.

A drab 1-0 defeat to Cardiff only heightens the unrest in the fanbase but there are options available. 

Emil Riis is yet to start and both Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop didn’t even make the 18 at Deepdale - all will have points to prove.

PNE Starting XI: Rudd, Rafferty, Bauer, Storey, Hughes, Ledson, Browne, Potts, Johnson, Sinclair, Riis.

PNE Subs: Ripley, Huntington, Gallagher, Harrop, Barkhuizen, Maguire, Stockley.

Half century for Jordan

Jordan Storey starts in place of the injured Ben Davies this evening and in doing so makes his 50th appearance for PNE.

Last season, Preston conceded five times to QPR as the London club beat them home and away.

Across the last nine meetings prior to last season, the Rs had just five times.

PNE get the game underway!

Emil Riis showing all sides of his game

So far Emil Riis has held the ball up well and has just run the ball down the outside and almost won a corner. Neither have come to anything but it shows that there isn’t just one plan when it comes to the Dane.

When Stockley is used it is often direct or bust but it doesn’t seem like there is too much of a one way gameplan.
