John Welsh: Back in the fray

John Welsh: Back in the fray

Team news for Easter Monday's League One clash between Preston North End and Shrewsbury Town at Deepdale.

Preston will welcome back captain John Welsh for the home clash with Shrewsbury.

Welsh has missed the last two games through suspension after picking up 10 yellow cards, but he should return to the starting line-up.

Striker Joe Garner was absent for Good Friday's disappointing 1-0 defeat to Brentford with a calf injury and the quick turnaround leaves him as doubtful for the Deepdale clash.

North End are hopeful Scott Wiseman will overcome a knee injury in time as boss Simon Grayson contemplates changes.

Shrewsbury will welcome Joseph Mills back for the visit to Preston.

The on-loan Bolton defender has missed the last three games due to suspension, but returns to manager Mike Jackson's squad for the Easter Monday clash at Deepdale.

Striker Tom Bradshaw could earn a start after coming off the substitutes' bench to score in the damaging 3-1 defeat to relegation rivals Crewe on Friday following an earlier-than-expected return from injury.

Midfielder David McAllister misses out with an ankle injury in a game the Shrews must win as they sit five points from safety.
