Preston can welcome back defenders Joe Rafferty and Darnell Fisher for the visit of Reading on Sunday.
Rafferty has completed a three-match ban and Fisher sat out the last two games through suspension.
Midfielder Daniel Johnson is still a doubt and Lewis Moult is a long-term absentee.
Ryan Ledson could start if manager Alex Neil opts to rotate his squad.
Reading are set to be without striker Sam Baldock.
Baldock missed the 1-0 win over QPR with the groin injury he suffered against Derby last weekend.
A scan has since shown the problem is not serious but Baldock is not expected to be fit to face North End.
Midfielder John Swift limped off late on against Rangers but he will be available.
