VIDEO - Preston v Rotherham United: We’re underdogs, insists Evans
The first leg takes place on Saturday tea-time at Deepdale, with Evans admitting he had a sneaky feeling they would end up facing Simon Grayson’s Lilywhites, having gone into the final regular weekend of the season still able to draw three play-off opponents - North End, Leyton Orient and Peterborough United.
Evans said: “I always had a sneaky feeling it might be Preston and that’s who we have got and we are all looking forward to it.
“I see the bookmakers have got them favourites to win the play-offs outright and I don’t think any manager in League One would disagree with that.
“I think they see Preston and a manager who has been in the play-offs and they certainly have ample top, top players for League One and if anything they are probably a bit disappointed they have ended up in the play-offs.
“They are a top team and we have our work cut out dealing with them over two games.”
