Simon Grayson has no new injury or suspension concerns as he tries to continue Preston's unbeaten run when they meet Swindon at Deepdale.

North End have won each of their last four games in League One and are just one of three teams in the division yet to taste defeat, with their opponents this weekend winless on the road.

Boss Grayson has just one absentee with midfielder Jack King a couple of weeks away from a return due to a broken foot.

Former Newcastle trainee Alex Nicholson signed a deal on Thursday and could be considered but fellow defender Shane Cansdell-Sherriff has joined Burton on loan until January.

Swindon will be without playmaker Ryan Harley when they make the trip to Preston.

The former Brighton midfielder missed the defeat to Chelsea and the victory over Bristol City and he misses out again with his medial ligament injury.

A late decision will be made on the fitness of Ryan Mason, who also missed both games with a thigh problem, while the Robins are waiting on the results of Nile Ranger's scan. The former Newcastle man suffered a groin strain in Tuesday's televised clash.

Nathan Byrne will be available again at Deepdale after serving his three-match suspension but Alex Smith remains sidelined.

Does David De Gea Need Competition?

It would certainly be a good idea to give Victor Valdes a contract, while we have more mails on Brendan Rodgers, Arsene Wenger, the rabona and mailbox gripes...
