Will Preston's luck change at the Ricoh?
Preston North End are the visitors to the Ricoh Arena this weekend, desperately searching for a win to kickstart their spluttering season.
Financial constraints meant most fans expected a season of struggle but even the patience of the most undertstanding supporters will be tested by a recent run of defeats.
Wednesday night saw two late Wigan goals knock PNE out of the League Cup, a derby defeat to add to Burnley's incredible recent comeback at Turf Moor.
'I'm not looking for excuses but we just aren't getting any luck - (we) hit the bar, post - it's game over if that went in,' said manager Darren Ferguson after the game at the DW Stadium.
'Again we have lost a game late on, people will accuse us of not being fit enough, nonsense.
'One thing I would say is the last 20 minutes we didn't keep it well enough, we invited pressure. We have got to have more composure.'
