Preston literally don't need any introduction. We like playing each other on the last day of the season; either we win promotion or they do.
'We are not going there just to play in a testimonial game' - Alan Irvine Preston manager speaking to the clubs official site www.pne.com
'The most important thing is winning through to the final in front of your home fans.' - Gary Johnson speaking to www.bcfc.co.uk
Steve Brooker and Little Lee Johnson both look likely to miss out again. Other than that the squad is fully fit and the selection is down to Magic Johnson.
The weather is warmer and 'Skippy' is bouncing.
Wayne Henderson and Michael Hart are long term absentees. Other than that Alan Irvine has a fit squad to choose. Most are hoping that Matthew Hill will play. He is sure of a good reception at Ashton Gate. Come home Matty!
Mellor seemed on the fringes of a very special career at Liverpool, knee injuries have blighted his progress. The same was true of his first season at Preston where he played just five games scoring just once. He has scored ten goals in his first proper season at Preston mostly as substitute.
Bristol City have always won the last home game of a promotion season.
Honours are evenly shared in 7o games between the sides Bristol City have won 23 Preston have won 24 and there have been 23 draws.
Preston North End have only won 4 times at Ashton Gate, the last time however, was their last visit when they won 2-0 having already secured promotion.
The Pray Offs!!! Next Saturday, or Sunday or the Tuesday, or the Wednesday after that. A lot depends on the results today (and Crystal Palace for some reason?).
