Neil Kilkenny: Back from his ban

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Preston North End and Notts County at Deepdale.

Preston have Neil Kilkenny available for the visit of Notts County to Deepdale..

The midfielder, who penned a permanent deal with North End at the start of January, was sent off against Bradford in midweek and was due to serve a three-game ban before the FA overturned the decision on Thursday.

Striker Kevin Davies, meanwhile, will complete a three-match suspension of his own but will return for the FA Cup replay with Nottingham Forest next Wednesday.

Otherwise, Lilywhites boss Simon Grayson has a full squad to choose from with the likes of Keith Keane, Chris Humphrey and Lee Holmes ready to replace Kilkenny.

Notts County have no new problems ahead of the trip to Preston and manager Shaun Derry will select from an unchanged squad.

After seeing his side thrashed 5-1 at home by Walsall last weekend Derry must decide whether to give those players a chance to redeem themselves or make changes at Deepdale.

The likes of Kwesi Appiah, Curtis Thompson, Greg Tempest, Haydn Hollis and Callum Ball are waiting in the wings should Derry opt to freshen things up.

Forward Ronan Murray will serve the second game of his three-match suspension while Mustapha Dumbuya and Gary Liddle remain out injured.
