Preston North End generally manage to give Liverpool a hard game, and the Reds must be on their best behaviour. Improvement is looked forward to in the front rank compared with the previous home match, and one also anticipate a more polished display from the half-back line.
North End like Liverpool, are badly in need of points, and it is bound to prove a strenuous struggle for supremacy.
A glance at the table reveals the fact that North End have won but two games, although they have shared the spoils on five occasions.
They claim two points more than the Reds’ 11. However, it would seem that there is little between the sides.
The Liverpool directors last evening chose the following eleven: –
Hardy; Longworth and Crawford; Robinson, Harrop and McConnell; Goddard, Orr, Parkinson, Bowyer and Uren.
Preston North End: McBride; McFadyen, Baker; Holdsworth, Wareing, Lyon; Thompson, Bannister, McLean, Mounteney, and Winterhalder.
The selected team is as was anticipated, no exception being taken to the side which were responsible for such a highly creditable performance against the Teessiders last week.
