Preston North End v Burnley: When is it? Is it on TV? What's the latest team news?
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Clarets’ last trip to Deepdale was on April 22nd, 2016, when Joey Barton’s deflected set-piece — which wrong-footed Chris Kirkland — settled the derby and pushed Sean Dyche’s side another step closer to the title.
This time the visitors arrive with Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany in command after the ex-Belgium international switched from RSC Anderlecht in the summer to take on his first managerial role in England.
Burnley, with 16 new additions during the transfer window, are fifth with 13 points from eight games and are currently the third highest scorers in the division having netted 14 times.
The Lilywhites, meanwhile, own one of the meanest defences in Europe after conceding once in eight games, which included seven successive clean sheets.
Freddie Woodman’s guard was eventually breached in their last outing on home turf as Birmingham City’s Maxime Colin inflicted the club’s first league defeat of the season at the start of the month.

What’s the latest team news?
The home side will be without midfielder Ben Woodburn on Tuesday night after the former Liverpool youngster was withdrawn with an ankle injury during the victory away at Coventry City at the end of August.
Defender Andrew Hughes is also back in contention for the Lilywhites having been sidelined since the goalless draw at home to Watford with a shoulder injury while Bambo Diaby and striker Sean Maguire could also make the cut.
Burnley, meanwhile, will still be without long-term absentee Ashley Westwood, who is expected back around November time after suffering a serious knee injury at West Ham at the back end of last season.
Summer signing Scott Twine, who has featured once this term, and club stalwart Kevin Long are also expected to miss out as the pair continue to work their way back to full fitness.
Speaking about ex-MK Dons star Twine, boss Kompany had said: "He is on the grass. It looks like he's shaken off his injury and it looks like we'll have a fully complete squad very soon. It's just Westy and that will take the time that it takes.”
