Preston

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 09:45
In Brief

Preston suffer poor Christmas. Daniel Johnson still out. Patrick Bauer and Tom Clarke doubts.

Looking Back

Preston have lost their way of late with no wins in four and two straight defeats.

Went down 2-0 at home to Middlesbrough on Wednesday, another poor performance where they struggled to get going.

Looking Ahead

This is a big game for Alex Neil as he takes on his old club and he is likely to play a strong side with that in mind.

Patrick Bauer returned on Wednesday but went off after just 45 minutes so he is doubtful along with Tom Clarke who was not involved.

Daniel Johnson remains out while Louis Moult and Josh Ginnelly are also still missing.

Points of Interest

Have nine wins, two draws and three defeats on home soil this season.

Norwich City

Last updated: Sat 04 January 2020 08:21
In Brief

Dead last in Premier League and this FA Cup seen only as unwanted distraction. Not many regulars likely to take part. Fahrmann, Klose and Godfrey remain sidelined. Will have top use teenage striker as all of Pukki, Drmic and Srbeny also missing.

Looking Back

Norwich threw away lead for fifth time in last 7 rounds in Premier League when pegged back to 1:1 home draw by Crystal Palace. Canaries winless since November (D4 L4) and this saw them collapse to last place in league.

With survival in top flight all that matters FA Cup not likely to be taken very seriously.

Looking Ahead

Coach Farke expected to trust mostly supporting players in this one, with Amadou likely to be used out of position in defence as Klose and Godfrey remain sidelined.

Youngster Idah likely to lead attack as all 3 first-team centre forwards (Pukki, Drmic and Srbeny) are out injured.
