Preston North End midfielder Daniel Johnson is expecting a tough but exciting test against Fulham at Craven Cottage at the weekend.

North End return to action on Saturday afternoon in the capital after the international break, and Johnson knows what to expect from a strong Fulham team who reached the Play-Offs last season.

Speaking as the players returned to Springfields after a short break over the weekend, the midfielder said: "They are one of the better teams in the league, we obviously know what they are about, they are a very good passing team and they move the ball really well.

"We've adapted a new style of play this season so I think it's going to be a really interesting game.

"We want to pass the ball more and keep the ball more and obviously that's what they do and that's what they've always done so it's going to be a really exciting game I think."

Fulham currently sit in tenth place in the Championship, and Johnson knows that despite some changes in the squad, the London side will pose just as tough a test as they did last season.

"Ultimately they are a good team whether they've started slow or not, they are a really good team. They have changed a few players and brought in a few players but their philosophy remains the same.

"We've just got to go down there and do what we do and stop them from playing and play our game and hopefully we can come away with the three points.

North End will be backed by over 1,000 PNE fans at Craven Cottage and Johnson has praised the fans for their backing this season, particularly on the road.
