However, although the two teams occupy 17th and 15th places in the standings, they sit as close to the playoffs as they do to the bottom three.

Stoke have improved recently, picking up five points from three matches, although they saw that unbeaten run ended on Friday as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to leaders Burnley.

While conceding just once to Burnley may be deened to be a positive in some quarters, it is a result that keeps Stoke looking over their shoulders towards the relegation zone.

Their season has not been helped by a dismal return at the bet365 Stadium, picking up just 12 points from as many matches, and that will need to improve if they wish to have any hope of a late playoff bid.

Sitting just two points adrift of the top six, Preston will have their own ambitions of challenging for promotion, but they are currently too inconsistent to be regarded as serious candidates.

Having previously won three matches in succession, Preston have since recorded four defeats from five matches, including suffering three defeats on the bounce.

Although Ryan Lowe’s side conceded just five times in defeats to Queens Park Rangers, Huddersfield Town and West Bromwich Albion, just one goal was scored in those matches after previously hitting four at Blackburn Rovers.

Preston now remain within three points of fourth place, even though they start the latest batch of fixtures comfortably in the bottom half of the table.

These two teams have previously met on 55 occasions across all competitions, where Stoke have claimed 16 victories while Preston have won 24, and they have drawn in 15. Preston have scored 80 goals and conceded 70 in the process.

Stoke City Team News

Having altered with his Stoke side for the Burnley game, Alex Neil could do the same here with Liam Delap in line to be recalled in the final third.

Tariqe Fosu-Henry may feature on the flank, allowing Josh Tymon to return to left-back, but Josh Laurent may remain on the substitutes’ bench due to his lack of recent game time.

Preston North End Team News

Off the back of defeat to West Brom, Preston North End manager Lowe may potentially recall Ben Woodburn for Ched Evans in attack.

Alistair McCann could come back into the side, but this game will come too soon for Troy Parrott, Robbie Brady and Andy Hughes.
