Preston have made three changes from the defeat at Swansea City for tonight's clash with Stoke City.

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
