Alex Neil changed his full starting eleven from the weekend's game which shows that Preston have some strength in depth for most positions. North End despatched Bradford with ease as they notched four goals away at Valley Parade.
Preston were two goals to the good early on. The first was a neat finish from Andre Green who scored his first for the club. The second came from a piercing ball from Ledson who found Barkhuizen. The frontman went on to strike home.
Barkhuizen added a second in the second period before Josh Harrop returned to action for the first time in over a year from the bench to score late on.
