OverviewThese two clubs initially met in the FA Cup in 1892, with Preston North End claiming a 2-1 victory on that day. Nine years later, they locked horns for the first time in the league and it was Middlesbrough who tasted success as they found themselves on the right side of a 2-1 score line.
Overall, Boro have dominated this fixture and have a strong advantage in the head-to-head. The Teeside outfit even went 13 games unbeaten against The Lilywhites between 2006 and 2018, winning eight times within that period and drawing the other five.
