Draw. We're a solid side but can't see us putting a long run of wins together.

I haven't really taken too much notice of their results or seen them play this season but it would be nice to not only get the win but to make up for last season's woeful display up there.

Yes last season was appalling.  The second half did for RDM, as it was the worst, most unhinged display I've seen since the Bradford semi-final.

I'm with you, Deano. I wouldn't be disappointed with a point tonight, although we could certainly do with a positive reaction after Sunday's dour display. I can but live in hope.

Zero chance we'll win, or even draw tonight.

That's typical of a Steve Bruce side. Only capable of getting a result when they are actually playing. Disgraceful.

I think the comment may refer to the fact we don't play tonight

Is Grealish fit again? Does anyone think he might feature?

Interesting idea. Preston are probably one of the better sides for him to play against. According to Bruce last week he has played 3 reserve or training games. So maybe?

I wouldn't want Hogan to play if he's going to be asked to track back on the left side of midfield - what an utter waste of time.

JG, if selected really needs to start to take games by the scruff off the neck and stop showboating

Played 75 minutes against Newcastle on Monday I think.

Really could do with a win

Quite a few choices to make for first time in a while:

Taylor back?
Jedinak to start?
Who alongside him?
Snodgrass rested?
Hogan or Onomah?
O'Hare or Grealish on the bench?

I think we need a combo of physical strength and going for the jugular. The easy thing to say is that means 442. But that's not always the case.

I'd definitely have at least one of O'Hare and grealish on the bench, replacing Thor and Kodjia in the squad
