Preston North End host Stoke City at Deepdale in the evening kickoff, as the two sides go head to head in a competitive game for the first time in ten years.
North End themselves will be hopeful of securing the three points and continuing ‘Fortress Deepdale’ and piling more pressure onto the Potters.
Is the pressure beginning to build on the former Premier League side? Our tipster seems to think so.

….Stoke still finding their feet in Championship?
A heavy defeat at Leeds in their opening game of the season followed by a one all draw at Brentford leaves preseason favourites Stoke still searching for their first victory of the season.
The Potters spent big in the summer as they hope to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Benik Afobe, Tom Ince and James McClean were all brought in to a squad that possesses bags of experience and talent, so surely it’s only going to be a matter of time before Gary Rowett’s side bag their first three points of the campaign.
On the bright side Stoke’s new striker Benik Afobe has hit the ground running scoring two goals in his first two games for the club.
The former Wolves striker is 13/2 to open the scoring at Deepdale tonight.
Preston looking solid at Deepdale…
Alex Neil’s side are unbeaten at home so far this season following wins over QPR in the league and Morecambe in the Carabao Cup while there were encouraging signs in the second half against the Swans last Saturday that suggests Preston will be more than a match for Stoke this evening.
North End fell short of the playoffs by two points last season and will be hoping to go one better this campaign and their home form will be key to achieving that.
Preston have won six of their last seven home games against Stoke and are 6/4 to take all three points – none of the last ten competitive meetings between the two teams have ended in a draw.
The Lilywhites will be hoping to take advantage of a Potters side clearly still adapting to life in England’s second tier and still looking for their opening win of the season – the 6/4 on the home win offers plenty of appeal.
I’m expecting a tight nervy affair, with few goals, but ultimately Preston should come out on top and sneak this one.
