Lancashire rivals Preston North End and Blackburn Rovers face off at Deepdale on Saturday, in what could prove a pivotal game in the Championship play-off race.


The pair have played out some fiery encounters in recent years but rarely, if ever, has it meant more than it does this weekend. Luton and Middlesbrough look to have locked down the first two play-off places, but Preston and Blackburn are among the seven sides battling it out for the final two spots.

North End saw their top six hopes dented on Wednesday evening as they were beaten 4-2 away at Swansea but despite dropping to 11th, Ryan Lowe's side are still just two points back from Blackburn in sixth.

Rovers looked set to tighten their grip on the play-offs in midweek and end their recent winless run until Coventry City goalkeeper Ben Wilson bagged a 95th-minute equaliser.

These two are certainly no strangers but this time there is much more than bragging rights on the line. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Preston v Blackburn on TV and online.
