Preston boss Alex Neil hopes to have players returning for the home game against Luton.
Ben Davies could be fit to renew his central defensive partnership with Patrick Bauer, while Darnell Fisher is nearing a return to full fitness. Daniel Johnson and Paul Gallagher will also be assessed.
Joe Rafferty’s red card in the midweek win against Fulham means he is suspended, but with captain Tom Clarke available and the possibility of Fisher back as well, Neil may have options at right-back.
Louis Moult remains sidelined as he continues his rehabilitation following an anterior cruciate ligament operation.
Luton will check on the fitness of Brendan Galloway, Dan Potts and Luke Bolton.
Potts (groin) and Bolton (illness) missed the defeat at Stoke, while Galloway has been out since the end of November with a ruptured patella.
Izzy Brown remains absent with the hamstring injury he sustained during the Hatters’ 7-0 thrashing at Brentford a couple of weeks ago.
Luton have lost their last six away games in the Sky Bet Championship, conceding 20 goals in the process.
