The Opposition: Preston North End

We have had a change of management, as expected, but not a change in fortunes with three straight defeats for new boy Irvine.

The team is starting to form slowly under Irvine and hopefully results will turn in a handful of matches. The formation is likely to be 4-4-2 with the only new injury worry being Billy Jones added to that of long term casualty Henderson.

Team selection has changed every game under Irvine as he tries to find his best eleven and I expect a different starting eleven on Tuesday to that which was defeated at Wolves on Saturday.

The team is slowly improving and I am sure it will be a marked improvement from that which whimpered at the KC only a few weeks ago.
