The Rovers manager has recently had concerns over Liam Ridehalgh (groin), fellow defender Ian Goodison (thigh) and on-loan striker Jake Cassidy (back) but now has the luxury of a clean bill of health.
The Sky Bet League One club also extended the loans of both Fulham centre-back Stephen Arthurworrey and Everton full-back Matthew Pennington by another month this week, meaning they could retain their slots in the starting line-up.
Rovers will be bidding to win their third match in the past four games against North End, who are captained by their former skipper John Welsh.
