Arthur Gnohere and Mark McGregor both play after completing suspensions as does Ian Cox who is on his way back from the hamstring injury he sustained at Deepdale. There are also places for four of Saturday’s first team subs, the exception being Alan Moore.
We also have a trialist on view, winger Peter Douala, although we have no further information on the player.
The Clarets will line up: James Salisbury, Andy Leeson, Mark McGregor, Arthur Gnohere, Ian Cox, Tony Grant, Peter Douala, Gordon Armstrong, Ian Moore, Dimitri Papadopoulos, Brad Maylett. Subs: Mark Rasmussen, Matthew O’Neill, Anthony Shandran, Joel Pilkington, Andrew Waine.
It looks very likely that, as was the case last season, brothers will be in opposition with Joe O’Neill named in the Preston side and brother Matthew expected to play for the Clarets.
The full Preston team is: Tepi Moilanen, Marlon Broomes, Paul Carvill, Kyle Armstrong, David Elebert, Alan McCormack, Iain Anderson, Michael Brown, Pawel Abbott, Joe O’Neill, John Bailey. Subs: Andrew Lonergan, George Kurwen, Darren Kempson, Michael Kewley, Ben Kitchen.
