Tom Clarke, Josh Harrop and Tom Barkhuizen come in for the injured Louis Moult (knee) and Sean Maguire (concussion) while Darnell Fisher is on the bench

A bit of historical trivia: PNE played Stoke in the fifth Football League game on 6th of October 1888....and won 7-0 and the following season won 10-0 which is still a Football League record

Preston go 1-0 up in the 7th minute.

Great piece of play from Daniel Johnson who picks up an half-clearance on the edge of area, takes one touch before drilling a left-footed shot past Jack Butland in the Potters goal.
