Assistant manager Glynn Snodin believes Tuesday's Capital One Cup tie will give other players a chance to fight for a starting place in the league.
North End made five changes in the previous round against Premier League side Watford, and with at least two changes guaranteed this time, it provides an opportunity for other players to stake a claim in the first team.
Joe Garner will be unavailable after a fifth booking of the season on Saturday means he will be serving a one-match ban, while fellow striker Eoin Doyle is cup-tied for the fixture.
"It's a good chance for someone else to come in and get a chance, especially after the chat at the weekend, and it's a chance for them to prove they want to get in the team and stay in the team.
"The lads that came in for the last round did well, and that's what you want, you want them to make your selection for the next game a difficult one.
"You don't want it to be easy, you want everybody fighting for the shirt and it's been like that since we've been here and we want that to continue.
"Even the game against Crewe in the first round, I thought the lads who came in to the side were fantastic so hopefully the same again from the boys against Bournemouth."
