Anthony Elding could make his Preston debut.

Former Stockport striker Elding made the surprise move to Deepdale on Thursday, completing an emergency loan deal from Blue Square Bet Premier high-flyers Grimsby.

Also among the attacking options at Graham Westley's disposal is Akpo Sodje, who has extended his short-term contract at Deepdale until December.

Paul Huntington is ready to return to the heart of defence after serving a one-match suspension for last weekend's superb 4-1 win over Westley's former employers, Stevenage.

Injury has prevented fellow centre-back Shane Cansdell-Sherriff from featuring since the win over Yeovil in the first round of the FA Cup and he is set to miss out once more.

Left-back David Buchanan is pushing to be involved once more having made his comeback from a knee problem as a late substitute last weekend.

Injury-hit Brentford have added Wigan defender Rob Kiernan to their squad.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 defender on Thursday agreed a loan switch with the Bees until January 2.

Manager Uwe Rosler moved for the 21-year-old after losing a host of players to injuries.

Long-serving midfielder Kevin O'Connor is likely to miss the rest of the season with an ankle injury which required surgery, and striker Farid El Alagui has a long-term knee problem.

Defender Leon Legge is out with groin trouble, midfielder Tom Adeyemi has a hamstring injury and on-loan striker Jimmy Spencer has gone back to Huddersfield for treatment on a hip problem.

Development squad players Antonio German, Aaron Pierre and Emmanuel Oyeleke could be on the bench again.
