The backline remains unchanged, with Freddie Woodman, Jordan Storey, Liam Lindsay and Greg Cunningham all looking to extend North End’s excellent goalless start to the season defensively. Ben Whiteman continues in front of them, having started every game this season, alongside a changed midfield with Woodburn and McCann. Brad Potts and Robbie Brady will provide the width, looking to supply Evans and Troy Parrott down the middle – both in search of their first league goal this season, with Parrott netting once in the Carabao Cup. Manchester United loanee Alvaro Fernandez also returns to the squad, fit enough for a place on the bench.

Coventry City XI: Wilson, Eccles, Rose, McFadzean, Doyle, Bidwell, Allen, Sheaf, Waghorn, Godden, Gyokeres. Coventry Subs: Moore, Dabo, Panzo, Walker, Hamer, Palmer, Tavares.
