Leeds United take on Preston North End tonight at Deepdale. While the season is pretty much over for Leeds at this point, Preston could still harbour playoff dreams. However, their recent form, one win in their last five matches with four losses, doesn’t give much hope that the team from Lancashire can pull off an unlikely run to nick the final playoff spot as while they are six points out from 6th place, Preston sit in 11th place in the table, and would not only have to probably win almost all of their remaining matches but also leapfrog five other teams to get into the playoffs.

The match will not be shown on television anywhere, but for overseas customers the match is going to be shown streaming on LUTV. With no domestic coverage of the match there will likely be dodgy streams, if you’re into that sort of things.
The lineups have been announced, and they are interesting.
Recalling Grot and Roofe over some of the other options (such as Alioski and Saiz) and playing both Stuart Dallas and Vurnon Anita as fullbacks, instead of an actual fullback in Tom Pearce, will raise some eyebrows.
