Goals have been few and far between in Preston North End matches so far this season in the Sky Bet Championship.

Saturday's stalemate at Sunderland was their sixth goalless draw of the campaign, with three of those coming at Deepdale and three away from home.

There have been just seven goals in the Lilywhites' 11 league games so far (three scored and four conceded), less than half the number of any other team in the second tier.

Ryan Lowe's side are yet to win on home soil this term and have just one victory to their name in their last nine matches at Deepdale, a record the former Bury and Plymouth Argyle boss will be keen to change on Wednesday night.
