Iain Hume: Hoping to start

Team news for Tuesday's League One clash between Preston North and Bradford City at Deepdale.

Manager Simon Grayson will have almost a full squad of players to choose from as Preston welcome Bradford to Deepdale.

Jack King will once again miss out with a broken foot but the versatile midfielder is expected to be ready for first-team action in the next couple of weeks having returned to training this week.

Striker Iain Hume could be in line for a recall to the starting line-up having been dropped to the bench for the victory at Gillingham on Saturday after returning from international duty for Canada.

Young winger Josh Brownhill will hope he will be able to keep Lee Holmes out of the team after scoring on his full debut at the Priestfield Stadium.

Bradford striker Caleb Folan is hoping to make his full debut as leading goalscorer Nahki Wells is not ready to return for the trip to at Preston.

Former Wigan and Hull striker Folan, 30, made his debut off the substitutes' bench in Saturday's defeat at Crawley, while Wells looks set to miss his fourth game due to an ankle problem.

Manager Phil Parkinson has no new injury or suspension worries, but could be tempted to make one or two changes following successive 1-0 defeats.

Defender Andrew Davies will be out until the new year following knee surgery, so Matthew Bates could make his second start after making his debut at the weekend.
