Essam worry for Crawley

Connor Essam is an injury doubt for Crawley's clash with Preston.

The defender missed Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Oldham after suffering a knock to his hip against Coventry the week before.

Mark Connolly replaced Essam at the back and scored Crawley's goal at Boundary Park.

But the defeat ended Town's slim play-off hopes so manager Richie Barker could make further changes after admitting some of his players looked ``leggy''.

Skipper Josh Simpson has made two substitute appearances since recovering from an ankle injury so he could start along with fellow midfielder Matt Sparrow, who is over a recent hamstring problem.

Defender Kyle MacFadzean is unlikely to feature again this season after a long battle against a virus.

Preston can welcome back top scorer Nicky Wroe from suspension.

Wroe was forced to sit out Saturday's 1-0 win against Tranmere at Deepdale after picking up a red card against Carlisle but is in line to earn an immediate recall.

Lee Holmes came off the bench to make his first-team return from a hamstring injury against Rovers and will be pushing for a starting place along with Wroe.

Will Hayhurst showed no signs of concern following a hamstring injury with Keith Keane now also fully fit following a hernia problem.

Stuart Beavon (shoulder) remains a doubt meaning Joe Garner could have the chance to lead the line once more.

Jeffrey Monakana's goal on the stroke of half-time was enough to see Simon Grayson's men secure their third consecutive home win without conceding a goal at the weekend, but the Lancashire club now end their season with two away trips.
