Preston boss Phil Brown believes Saturday's home clash with relegation rivals Sheffield United is shaping up as his side's biggest game of the season.

North End lie one point above the bottom-placed Blades but seven points adrift of safety with only five matches remaining.


Brown is targeting maximum points from his side's last five matches and believes that may be enough to safeguard against the drop.

He said: "The Sheffield United game is massive for us, a real six-pointer - it is the game of the season as far as I'm concerned.

"I'm putting pressure on the lads saying that because I know they can respond to it and I'm putting pressure on the supporters because I'd love to see a full house at Deepdale.

"We can still reach 51 points and that is the target for my players."
