Football - Double doubt for Preston

Preston have a pair of doubts for their Sky Bet League One trip to Port Vale.

PA Sport Report

The Lilywhites picked up a point in a 1-1 draw with Colchester at Deepdale on Saturday and injuries to captain John Welsh and defender Tom Clarke only added to boss Simon Grayson's frustration.

The duo sustained knocks in the closing stages, which forced them to be substituted, and the quick turnaround may work against them, although Grayson remains hopeful on their availability.

On-loan central midfielder Neil Kilkenny is set to retain his place in the starting line-up while striker Stuart Beavon completes a three-game suspension.
