Neil Mellor is a major doubt for the home side after having a reoccurrence of his jarred hip.
Brian Stock is a doubt after picking up a calf strain in Saturday`s win.
Still out are the long term injured Jos Van Nieuwstadt, Sean McDaid, James Hayter and Gordon Greer.
This will be the first clash between the two sides for ten years when they met in the FA Cup at Deepdale with the home side winning 3-2.
