Preston v Leicester: How to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, head-to-head stats and team news

Leicester were promoted without kicking a ball on Friday and they should seal the championship title by beating Preston on Monday.

Leeds’ unexpected 4-0 defeat at QPR on Friday confirmed Enzo Maresca’s side cannot finish any lower than second, while Ipswich’s 3-3 draw at Hull on Saturday means the Foxes will be Championship champions if they win at Deepdale.
