Grayson predicts Rovers battle

Preston boss Simon Grayson says his side will have to be at their best to take all three points at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

North End are currently involved in the fight for a top-six finish and they head to Ewood Park in eighth spot, six points adrift of the play-off places.

Rovers are just one place and one point clear of the relegation places and as such Grayson feels Saturday's Lancashire derby will be a hard-fought contest.

He told the club's official website: "When you have local derbies obviously there is extra spice given the distance between the two football clubs, but ultimately we need points to try and close the gap on the teams above us and certainly Blackburn need the points to get away from the relegation zone and stay in the division.

"We need the three points, we want the bragging rights regardless of who we are playing and let's just hope we are celebrating a victory like we did there last year."
