Preston North End were promoted to the Championship via. the play-off final at Wembley.Advertisement
A resounding 4-0 win saw the team proceed to the next tier of English football.
The result is that PNE will visit a handful of stadiums they haven’t visited in some time.
Here’s five stadiums we can’t wait to visit.
Although not much of a journey away, Ewood Park offers PNE the chance to put one over on a set of rivals we haven’t met in sometime.
One of the best things about being in the Championship is the number of Lancashire clubs that Preston will meet. If Blackpool and Wigan weren’t relegated, it would be more.
The finest of stadiums, it is not. However, beating Burnley at their home ground the season after they were relegated would be a great day.
There’s also revenge on the cards following Preston’s defeat to Burnley last time the sides met at Turf Moor in the League Cup.
American Express Stadium
Brighton is one of the best places in the country to visit so this one is almost for reasons outside of football.
Still, they have a gorgeous stadium and present the longest round trip for the Lilywhites.
The site of one of the most famous PNE wins in recent years, that 6-4 win with a Jon Parkin hat-trick.
That win was one of few bright moments under the management of Darren Ferguson and if the match is half that special it will be an achievement.
New York Stadium
A chance for vengeance against the side that delayed Preston North End’s return to the Championship.
A big win would go a long way to exercising those demons – something Preston are getting pretty good at.
