Football - Preston wait on Welsh

Preston are awaiting the verdict on captain John Welsh's knee injury ahead of the Walsall game.

PA Sport Report

The central midfielder underwent a precautionary scan on Tuesday afternoon for an injury which has kept him out of North End's last two games.

Simon Grayson's men drew 3-3 with Rotherham in midweek - a game which defender Scott Wiseman did not finish after taking a late knock. He will also be assessed.

Grayson has no other injury worries but could consider changes for the third game in eight days, Josh Brownhill and Jack King amongst those who are likely to come into the manager's thinking.
