For Preston North End manager Alex Neil it could be one in and one out in terms of player availability for the Gentry Day trip to face West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.
Ben Pearson sits out his first of three games for the sending-off he received early in the second half against Leeds United on Tuesday night, but Paul Gallagher should be fit to return after missing the clash with the Whites at Deepdale.
Brad Potts is not expected to make it and will join long-term casualties Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop (both ACL), Tom Barkhuizen (knee) and Andrew Hughes (hamstring) on the sidelines.
Captain Tom Clarke is another still out on the equation for the manager, along with Manchester City loanee Brandon Barker, whose hamstring problem has ruled him out for the remainder of the campaign as well.
West Brom caretaker boss James Shan was able to select Craig Dawson for their loss at Bristol City on Tuesday night. The experienced defender had missed the previous Saturday’s defeat at Millwall with a sickness bug.
Dawson’s return was timely one as fellow defender Ahmed Hegazi was suspended against City after his red card at the Den. Matt Phillips has this week returned to training as well and he should come into the reckoning against the Lilywhites, giving Shan further options on the attacking front.
