Simon Grayson has no fresh injury concerns as he looks to bounce back from a first league defeat of the season with a win over Oldham in the second round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Midfielder Jack King (broken foot) is the only long-term absentee for the Lilywhites while captain Keith Keane will be assessed after being forced off with a knock during the home win over Swindon.
John Welsh and Nicky Wroe both came off the bench at half-time to good effect at Peterborough and will be hoping to have done enough to secure a starting place.
Joe Garner, John Mousinho and Lee Holmes have all had to make do with bit-part roles in recent weeks but could come into contention as Preston look to extend a run of seven home games without defeat against the Latics.
Oldham will be without Matteo Lanzoni after the defender limped out of Saturday's draw with Leyton Orient.
Lee Johnson confirmed he expects the Italian to miss at least two weeks with a slight tear to his hamstring and he will undergo a scan to confirm the extent of the problem.
Cristian Montano will be hoping for a start after he came off the bench last weekend having recovered from an operation on a cyst, while Genseric Kusunga also returned from a hamstring injury and should continue in defence.
Latics boss Johnson refrained from making wholesale changes in the last round but could call upon the likes of Adam Rooney, Kirk Millar and Johnson Clarke-Harris should he decide to freshen up his side.
