Ryan Lowe is “really excited” to return to Deepdale, more than a month on from the last home game, and his first as PNE manager.
The manager said: “I’m really excited about it, I can’t wait. I’m excited every time I walk out as Preston North End manager to represent this football club, to represent my team and get them playing the style of play we want.”
“Saturday’s going to be no different, albeit there’s going to be hopefully a lot more fans there to see it [than last weekend] and it’s up to me, the staff and the players to come up with a game plan that they can be excited about.”
There’s a busy period coming up which follows the Birmingham game, with weekend-midweek-weekend fixtures running until the middle of February.
