Cork City v Preston North End Preview
Cork City host Championship side Preston North End this evening.
The sides go head to head at Turner's Cross, with kick off at the earlier than usual time of 7pm.
There's plenty of Cork interest in the North End side, with former Ringmahon Rangers duo Alan Browne and Adam O'Reilly in their ranks, while former City striker Seani Maguire will be looking to score into the Shed End once again tonight.
Ahead of the game we caught up with City's first team head coach John Cotter to discuss the game, the return of Mark O'Sullivan, the Europa League clash against Progres Niederkorn and more.
Seani meanwhile is looking forward to returning to the Cross.
