Brownhill eyes victory on Deepdale return

Josh Brownhill expects a "tough" game against his former employers, as City look to increase daylight between them and Preston North End.

Brownhill spent his developing years at Preston, before making the move to BS3 in the summer of 2016.

The pair clash in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday night, with City three points ahead of the Lilywhites.

The 22-year-old midfielder told BCTV: "I’m looking forward to it, to see some familiar faces. They are in a battle for the top six like we are. They are pushing for it as well so it will be a tough game. It’s never easy when you play Preston."

When asked about the game being a potential six-pointer, he said: "You could say that. It’s a game we want to win, to show everyone that we are still in with a chance [of promotion]. 

"They have had a very good season, as you’d expect with the players they have and who they have bought. Hopefully it will be a different story when we get there."

City were thumped 5-0 in their previous trip to Deepdale, the last of a poor run of results as the Robins fought away from the relegation zone in the 2016/17 campaign.

Reflecting on that, Brownhill continued: "The lads have spoken about it and we want to go there and show what we can do. We weren’t in great form then but it’s a lot different now.

"We’re sixth in the table and go there to hopefully put in a good performance. Getting the three points there is definitely what we need."
