PNE look to be the first team in 18 months to win at Shrewsbury Town in the league...
Recently recruited striker Akpo Sodje will be vying for a place in the squad after receiving international clearance following his move from China.
Winger Lee Holmes, who missed the opening game of the season, will be given every opportunity whilst Joel Byrom could also return after missing both the Huddersfield and Colchester matches.
Boss Graham Westley revealed in his post-match press conference that Jack King and John Mousinho have not been ruled out of Tuesday’s game but are considered doubts.
The game will also see duo Nicky Wroe and Shane Cansdell-Sherriff return to Greenhous Meadow for the first time since leaving to join PNE.
North End boss Graham Westley is fully aware of the threat Shrewsbury pose on their own patch, despite his opposite number Graham Turner losing his first two games of the season.
The visitors can take plenty of optimism into the match following two positive performances at Deepdale in the past seven days.
It will signify the Lilywhites’ first trip to Shropshire since the Shrews switched to Greenhous Meadow in 2007, with the hosts having an impeccable record at home, seeing them remain unbeaten in the last 18 months.
Preston North End will take to the road for the first time this season when they travel to newly promoted Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night.
Prices for the game are as follows:
Seniors (over 65) £14
Coach prices are as follows:
Coaches will depart Deepdale/Leyland at 4.15pm.
Tuesday night’s opposition currently hold one of the proudest records in all four divisions, having not lost at home since December 2011, a run which PNE hope to end.
Since their promotion to League One, Shrewsbury have witnessed several players heading in and out of the club, including now PNE duo Nicky Wroe and Shane Cansdell-Sherriff.
However, there will be one familiar in the opposition half for PNE supporters in the shape of former Welsh international and Preston winger Paul Parry.
Starting the new campaign with two defeats against Leeds and Sheffield United, Turner will be looking for a quick response from his side against the Lilywhites.
