PREVIEW: Sky Blues host Preston North End under the lights

City take on Ryan Lowe's side at the CBS Arena...

22 February 2024

The Sky Blues take on the Preston North End at the Coventry Building Society Arena in Sky Bet Championship action (7:45pm).

Meet Preston North End:

Preston North End head into the game having rediscovered their form which saw them sit top of the Championship after seven games had been played.

Ryan Lowe's side won six of their opening eight fixtures and were flying high at the top of the division, however two wins from their next 13 games, saw them drop out of the play-off places.

With seven goals in his previous eleven games, striker Will Keane leads the scoring for Preston so far this season in all competitions, as he has helped PNE to a recent five-game unbeaten run, with three wins coming during that run.

The visitors to the Coventry Building Society Arena sit two points behind the Sky Blues in the Championship table, knowing a win will help them close the gap on the top six.
