Preston Police are advising those near Deepdale on Tuesday (9 April) of a number of road closures.
Lowthorpe Road will have limited access between 6pm to 10pm between the junction with Blackpool Road and St Gregory’s Road.
Bill Shankley Crescent is to be restricted and Moor Park Avenue will be shut.
Police are putting the closures in place due to the large number of coaches expected from Leeds fans.
Similar closures were in place and a heavy police presence for the visit of more than 5,000 Sheffield United fans on Saturday to Deepdale.
Sergeant Paul McLernon said: “I hope that these arrangements do not affect access to your property unduly.
“However I would ask that careful consideration is given to travel arrangements to and from your property within the affected times.
“We understand the inconvenience that this causes to residents and are making enquiries to find a more suitable location for coaches to park.
“We will of course make every effort to open the road as quickly as possible once it is safe to do so.”
Kick-off between Preston North End and Leeds is 7.45pm on Tuesday 9 April.
