Daniel Farke predicts a stiff challenge at Preston when they take a break from the fight Premier League survival.

"A tough one. If you were to play Liverpool or Manchester City you might say perhaps that is tougher. On the other hand, a really top class Championship side in a home game when they are highly motivated it's always a tough draw," said Farke, with City beaten 3-1 on their previous trip earlier this year. "You might expect the Premier League side to be the favourite but it's not a big difference when you go away to a side full of confidence in the top positions in the Championship.

"Thankfully it is a long time before we play this game, seven or eight games so let's worry about this game in a few weeks. A difficult task but I can assure you even in this game we'll be highly motivated to go into the next round."
