34 - Olsson crosses low. Sliced away at the near-post for a City corner. Murphy to take.
35 - Maxwell reaches it to catch.
@CityCanary: Nothing major, still 0-0 at present! Murphy going closest for City early on and McGovern denying Hugill with a good save.
37 - Another steady passage of play. Neither team totally clicking as of yet.
37 - Olsson with a foul on Hugill. Preston free-kick.
38 - Gallagher to send this in from the right.
38 - Good delivery but City do enough to get it away to safety.
39 - Brilliant from Hoolahan. He holds off three players before slotting Olsson through, the City left-back winning a corner.
40 - Preston clear and Klose plays back to McGovern, who shifts it right for Tettey to drive forward.
41 - Brady looks for Murphy but can't find him. Preston free-kick inside their own half.
42 - Olsson makes a timely interception to nick the ball away from Hugill. Preston corner.
42 - Tettey heads away at the near-post. Hoolahan picks up but Tettey misreads his return pass.
43 - Hoolahan then tackled on the edge of the box.
44 - Martin clears off Pringle, winning his side a goal-kick.
45 - One minute to be added.
45 - Tettey shoots from distance. Maxwell claims, initially spilling before smothering the loose ball.
45 - Another fine stop from McGovern at the other end as he gets in the way of Robinson's effort after the Preston forward reached a pass over the top.
Steady first half that one, really. Finely balanced.
@MattGeorge: 55% possession for us, 11 shots to 3 in our favour (5 to 2 on target)...according to BBC anyway!
City back out for the second half.
Closely followed by Preston.
Both teams look to be unchanged.
46 - Preston get things restarted. OTBC!
46 - Bennett wins an aerial challenge, Tettey picks up the scraps.
46 - Preston back on it quickly though and McGovern has to be alert to race out of his box and clear when Pringle is set through on goal.
47 - Gallagher moves the ball towards the right from the middle, before Preston go back to their goalkeeper.
48 - Offside against Robinson's from Maxwell's kick forward. City free-kick.
48 - City themselves go direct but a ball into space looking for Jerome goes behind for a goal-kick.
49 - Good work from Brady on the left to make space and swing in a cross. Preston just about deal with it though, eventually getting a goal-kick.
50 - Poor pass from Brady this time though. Preston pick up the loose ball in midfield but Hoolahan battles to win it back before being wiped out.
51 - Dorrans teed up to shoot from distance. Well over.
52 - Jerome offside from Martin's clearance. Preston free-kick.
52 - Close! Robinson runs onto Hugill's knockdown to volley at goal, firing just wide.
53 - City's coaching team in talks. Possibly a change imminent.
54 - All three of City's subs called over. So something about to happen, for sure.
54 - Preston on the front foot for now though.
54 - Robinson looks for Pringle but can't pick him out. City throw.
