Brentford face a trip to Preston North End at Deepdale on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 12 and win only 4 of the 22 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Deepdale was just last season, in November 2012, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League One match.
