In The Dressing Room

PNE will check on the fitness of Daniel Johnson and Liam Lindsay ahead of Tuesday night, after both missed out through injury at the weekend.

17-year-old Finlay Cross-Adair was involved for the first time on Saturday, making his professional debut against Stoke City, and he’ll be hoping to be included once again.

Troy Parrott is the only player definitely unavailable, with his hamstring injury keeping him out until December.

A Look At Our Hosts

There’s been a change of management at the John Smith’s Stadium in recent weeks, with Hertha BSC assistant coach Mark Fotheringham replacing Danny Schofield.

Under Schofield – who was boss when PNE won 4-1 in the Carabao Cup away from home earlier this year – the Terriers had made a below-par start to the campaign, finding themselves towards the bottom of the table following their Play-Off final defeat last season.

Now with Fotheringham in charge, he’s led his side to four points in his four games so far, most recently suffering a Yorkshire derby defeat to Rotherham United.

One To Watch

One of the Terriers’ top performers this season has been Sorba Thomas, who has carried over his impressive form from the last campaign.

Having assisted 12 goals in the Championship on their way to the Play-Offs last term, winger Thomas has already registered six assists in his 13 matches this season.

The former Boreham Wood man – capped six times by Wales – will be hoping to continue his form ahead of the Qatar World Cup.

Match Officials

Andy Woolmer will referee his third Preston North End game of the season on Tuesday night.

Woolmer has taken charge of two goalless draws for PNE this term, away at Cardiff City and Sunderland over the past two months.

He has officiated ten games this campaign, showing 39 yellow cards and two reds, and he’ll be assisted by Philip Dermott and Geoffrey Liddle, while David Webb is the fourth official.
