Preston North End v Blackburn Rovers: Confirmed line-ups as team news lands at Deepdale



The final Lancashire derby in the Championship will take place tonight as Preston North End host rivals Blackburn Rovers at Deepdale.

Just five points separate the two sides, but it is the visitors who have play-off aspirations still – a defeat to Ryan Lowe’s side this evening though will all-but end their hopes of finishing in the top six.

Let’s look at the team news for both sides as kick-off approaches at 7:30pm.

Dropping out of the side that lost 3-0 to the Cottagers is Liam Lindsay, Ali McCann, Ched Evans and Josh Earl – the latter two who aren’t in the squad.

Starting XI: Iversen; Van den Berg, Bauer, Hughes; Potts, Browne (C), Whiteman, Johnson; Cunningham; Riis, Archer

Subs: Ripley, LIndsay, McCann, Rafferty, Maguire, Sinclair, O’Neill
