The early bragging rights went Rovers' way as Sam Gallagher and Preston's Jordan Hugill went head-to-head in the GAME Room at Ewood Park.
The striking duo warmed up for this Saturday's big match by facing each other in a game of FIFA17 with the Rovers forward getting the better of his PNE counterpart.
"We had a couple of games of FIFA, I won the first game 6-2 and the second one 5-2, so it was a good day," Gallagher told Rovers PlayerHD.
"I was a bit worried at the start to be fair as he came out the blocks flying and scored after two minutes so I thought it was going to be a long day for me, but it ended up being a long day for him instead!"
