CITY fans will get a glimpse of a familiar face on the Preston bench.

Jonathan Gould, who was in goal for the club’s successful first Wembley appearance in 1996, will watch his first game as North End’s new keeper coach.

The former Scotland international, brought in by Chris Kamara from Coventry, played 21 games including that play-off final win over Notts County and was twice red-carded.

Gould joined Celtic the following summer where he would play for the next six years.

Gould, now 51, made over 350 career appearances in total before moving into coaching in New Zealand and Australia before more recent spells with West Brom and Middlesbrough.

He is not likely to be the only change in the Preston ranks for the Carabao Cup first round as manager Alex Neil shuffles his squad.

The Scot switched four names from the opening-day Championship loss at Millwall as they bounced back with a convincing 3-0 win over Wigan at the weekend.

Former City striker Louis Moult was among the surprise call-ups for his first start since December 22 – and responded with a first goal in eight months. Daniel Johnson was also preferred to Alan Browne in the number 10 role.

Moult was in Peter Taylor’s Bantams side that played against Preston the last time the sides met in this competition at Valley Parade in 2010. The visitors won 2-1 in extra-time – something that cannot repeat itself because any drawn games after 90 minutes will now go straight to penalties.

Moult, who joined Preston at the start of last year, had been the subject of recent interest from Charlton and was not even named in the squad that travelled to the Den on the first weekend of the new season.

“It will be horses for courses throughout the season,” said Neil.

“I don’t think I’ve ever shied away from making hard decisions and leaving key players out when I felt it’s necessary and that will continue to be the case.”
