Cotterill Previews Preston

Steve Cotterill hopes to find a rarity tonight – a Preston North End goalkeeper that doesn’t walk away with the Man of the Match award.

Last season Preston ran out 1-0 winners at Ashton Gate, despite coming under pressure from a second-half onslaught. In the away games that have followed City have again dominated a pair of 1-1 draws.

Cotterill told Bristol City Player HD: “We played very well up there earlier in the season (a 1-1 draw).

“Hopefully their goalkeeper won’t play as well as he did in that game. The last two times we’ve been at their place, their goalkeeper has been the best player!

“I don’t think they’ve changed much since promotion. Like our players, they’re improving in the Championship all the time.

“They’re a solid outfit and have done well so far this season.”

He added: “We were big rivals last season, but when you get promoted alongside teams you do build up a bit of a bond with them.

“It’ll be good to see Simon (Grayson) tonight, and I’m sure it will be the same for our players with their players. However, we still owe them one!”

Frank Fielding looks set to miss out with a rib injury and Cotterill remains hopeful he will have a new face between the sticks for the game.

Tickets will be available on the night for this fixture, which can be purchased from the Matchday Ticket Office on Ashton Road.
