Bescot Banter have teamed up with Journey to the 92 to bring you the latest news on travelling, parking and finding a place to drink at away grounds.
On Tuesday evening Walsall Football Club will travel North to Deepdale to take on Preston North End in the latest Sky Bet League 1 fixture of the season. Once again we have teamed up with to bring travelling supporters the latest news.

Four new stands have been built at Deepdale over the years. The new stands offer uninterrupted views of the pitch from all seats. The stands all have players images built in to the seating which makes a nice change to the usual club initials. Whilst it doesn't follow the generic modern bowl-shape design, by having open corners, it manages to maintain the traditional appearance which is perhaps better suited to a club with Preston'’s history, whilst still incorporating all the features of a new ground with added legroom and easy access in and out.

Visiting supporters are situated in the Bill Shankly Kop stand behind one of the goals. This stand is usually shared with the home fans but when a larger following is expected the whole stand can be given over to visitors. A maximum allocation of 6,000 is available but generally this is kept to 3,000. Views, facilities and legroom are all fantastic and the refreshments aren't bad either. Prices are very reasonable and staff and stewards are generally friendly and talkative.

There is a wide range of food available including; Cheeseburgers (£3.50), Burgers (£3.30), Hot Dogs (£3.50), Meat & Potato Pie (£2.60), Chicken Balti Pie (£2.60), Steak & Kidney Pie (£2.60) and the Potato & Butter Pie (£2.60). You can also get a pie, peas and gravy for £3.50, plus the Club offer a 'Pie & a Beer' for £5.50.

In the town centre you'll find the customary Wetherspoons and many other pubs but the closest to the ground that allows away fans in is There is the Deepdale Labour Club, behind the Town End stand.

There are fast food cabins situated around the perimeter of the ground and a McDonalds and Pizza Hut close by on the Deepdale Retail Park, just off Blackpool Road which tend to get really crowded on a match day.

Parking is available in the streets surrounding the stadium if you arrive early enough. Alternatively, at Moorfields Special School parking for cars is available for £3 a vehicle. The car park is manned by volunteers from the school and all proceeds go into school funds. The school is situated just past the stadium and is signposted.
