Deepdale

Preston's impressive run of form recently came to an end with a defeat at Deepdale against Crawley on Saturday, they remain at home for struggling Hartlepool's visit tonight.

There are several injury concerns for Preston with it believed that almost half a dozen members of side from the weekend are carrying injuries now, John Welsh (gashed shin) is one of them but Joel Byrom could start.

Keith Keane and John Mousinho are expected to miss out again through injury as will Lee Holmes (gashed leg) and Lee Trundle (knee).

Neil Austin (suspension) is primed to return to the Hartlepool starting XI after missing the weekend game following a sending off.

The visiting manager has some selection decisions to make but few of these are injury enforced as there aren't believed to be any fresh concerns for Pool, who are yet to win away this season.
