'It is probably one of the toughest draws we could have been handed': Bowyer on the difficulty of this cup tie for his team

Gary Bowyer is expecting a difficult game against Championship opposition but wants his players to seize the opportunity, he said:

"I will be making changes - a few forced and few who have been unlucky not to be starting from the beginning of the season. I have to give players the opportunity to break into the side.

It is probably one of the toughest draws we could have been handed. They have a very good squad and whichever starting 11 they name could still probably start in the Championship.

Alex was kind enough to invite me down to watch Preston train while I was without a club. He was very open and gave me a great insight into level of detail.

We have spoken a lot about the 2013 team and had meetings about it when I first arrived at the club. It is now up to our players to create their own history."


21:08a year ago

Neil looking to 'try and continue the momentum' from the weekend

Preston manager Alex Neil is expecting a tough cup game for his players, but is hopeful they can get the win and continue their momentum ahead of their next league fixture, he said:

“They have got guys who have mainly operated at Championship level for a lot of their career and have been really good players.

We know we can’t take it lightly; it will be a really tough game.

It’s a proper old-fashioned cup tie, going away from home and they will be up for it. We have to make sure that we go there with the right mentality and attitude, perform well and win the game.

We need to go there, perform well and make sure we try and continue the momentum from Saturday and take it into this game. Some of the lads who we will freshen it up with, have got a great opportunity to go and showcase what they can do."

Preston North End team news

After picking up a hamstring injury at the end of Saturday's victory over Wigan, left-back Andrew Hughes will not play any part in this game.

Bradford know how to make it all the way in this competition

It was six years ago when Bradford faced Swansea City in the final of this competition at Wembley in 2013.

They surprised every one by beating the likes of Arsenal and Aston Villa over two legs to go all the way to the final, which they ultimately lost 5-0.

Every fan and player would love to repeat that cup run this season or at least do something similar to it, although they face a tough test against Championship opposition to even get past round one.

20:27a year ago

The Lilywhites will be hoping to build on previous win

After a disappointing defeat on the opening day to Millwall, Alex Neil's men responded perfectly by thrashing local rivals Wigan Athletic 3-0 at Deepdale on Saturday.

Preston will be hoping they can build momentum by progressing into the next round of the Carabao Cup before a tough trip to Wales to face Swansea City this weekend.

20:19a year ago

Gary Bowyer looking for his team to get their first win of the season

Bradford have had an average start to the new League Two campaign, picking up two points from the first two fixtures. 

They began with a 0-0 draw at home to Cambridge United, despite the away side being down to ten men for the last half hour.

In the second game of the season, they drew 1-1 away at Grimsby Town, so they will be looking to gain some confidence by scoring a first home goal and possibly causing an upset when they face Preston.
