It's been just over four years since I last went to see Preston North End play Ipswich Town and get a 1-0 win in the English Championship. Unfortunately PNE were relegated to League 1 at the end of that season, but now after four years they are on the verge of being promoted back to the Championship with just two games left. Two wins and they are up! On Saturday I am off to Deepdale in Preston, thanks to a €36 return fare from Dublin to Liverpool, to see PNE play Swindon Town (and to catch up with my bro' Brian). What a tribute to the late Sir Tom Finney if they get promotion in the season in which he moved on to that great football field in the sky!
