Photos: Simon Grayson leads training as Preston prepare to face Manchester United

Preston players took to the training field ahead of their FA Cup clash with Manchester United on Monday.

Preston will be looking to play the role of the giantkiller in the FA Cup this weekend, when they face Manchester United at Deepdale on Monday night.

The Lilywhites are riding high in League One, and sit in fourth place after beating Chesterfield 2-0 on Tuesday - their third win in a row in all competitions.

Having beaten Sheffield United 3-1 at Bramall Lane, they are rewarded with the chance to play Manchester United at Deepdale in a fixture which manager Simon Grayson will relish.

The Preston boss took his Leeds side to Old Trafford in 2010, and came away with a famous 1-0 over Manchester United in one of the great FA Cup upsets in recent years.

All the cameras were at Preston's Springfields training ground today ahead of Monday's encounter, with Grayson instructing his players throughout.

Some of the more familiar faces involved were Paul Gallagher, Kevin Davies and of course, star striker Joe Garner, back from injury with a bang having bagged both goals in that win over Chesterfield.
