Insider outlines deep injury concern as he shares ‘worrying’ Updates for Preston North End vs. Southampton EFL Championship clash at the Deepdale…

Ahead of the EFL Championship clash between Preston North End and Southampton at Deepdale, here’s the most recent injury and team news.

Preston North End returns to Deepdale for their second home game in five days, hosting the Championship early-season favorites. In their previous match, they drew 1-1 with Millwall during the Saturday early kick-off, a game televised by Sky Sports. Mads Frokjaer-Jensen got Ryan Lowe’s team off to a promising start, but Zian Flemming equalized before half-time. The elusive second goal remained out of reach for both sides, resulting in a point for Preston. Their form has declined since the last international break, and they aim to return to winning ways in front of their fans, particularly after their perfect home record was tarnished by a 4-0 loss to West Brom.

Southampton, their Wednesday opponents, present a challenging test and secured a 2-1 victory against Hull City over the weekend. Ryan Fraser, on loan from Newcastle United, scored a dramatic goal in added time, propelling the Saints to fifth place and just one point behind Preston North End. Preston’s history against Southampton isn’t the most favorable, having lost their last three encounters, which occurred in 2008, 2009, and 2011. Therefore, it has been a significant 12 years since these two teams faced off.
