Bury v Preston
Johnstone's Paint Northern Q-F

Gigg Lane

Having secured a place in the third round of the FA Cup at the weekend Preston will be looking for a semi final place in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tonight. They go to league one rivals Bury in the northern area semi final.

Bury have the bonus of "no new injury problems" and can turn to Tom Hopper (ineligible) again.

Andy Bishop (foot) and David Healy (calf) are still out though with Adam Lockwood (groin) a long-term absentee who isn't quite ready to return yet.

Likewise Preston have "no fresh injury concerns" going into this and following the FA Cup Anthony Elding (ineligible) could also return and following a long-term knee problem Lee Trundle was able to make a late appearance for his Lilywhites debut at the weekend, he could get more time tonight.

Keith Keane (knee) and Scott Laird (broken leg) are out for the long-term though.
