The Lilywhites briefly drifted towards the relegation earlier in the season, but have rallied under interim head coach Frankie McAvoy in recent weeks, and could finish as high as eleventh in the league table if results go their way over the course of the final two match days of the season.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's clash against the Tykes, Preston skipper Allan Browne was asked to sum up his season, and answered honestly: “Not great. It was just a poor season all round. I’ve moved around positions but I still think I could have performed better. No matter where I play I expect a lot from myself.

“I just wasn’t up to it this year, there is no reason for that, I just wasn’t at it. I need to change that going into next year.

“It’s been really tough for everyone, that is not why I’ve had a poor season I know what I’m capable of and I know I will have a lot better one next year.”

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Preston North End and the rest of the Championship, as the build-up to this weekend's action continues:
