Is there any team news ahead of Preston North End v Watford?

Neil could well name an unchanged team after his side's impressive performance against Blackburn.

That would mean left back Andrew Hughes plays as a centre-back in a back three again, with Scott Sinclair and Jayson Molumby being left on the bench.

The Preston boss confirmed after the game at Ewood Park that Anthony Gordon missed out with a ‘slight niggle’ and remains a doubt for the game against Watford.

Watford boss Xisco tried out a new 4-3-3 system against Bristol City, which produced a stunning 6-0 win, meaning the Hornets could also name an unchanged line-up.

Troy Deeney could come back in after only being fit enough for the bench on Saturday.

New signings Dan Gosling and Achraf Lazaar made their debuts as substitutes so will be in line to feature again.
