Preston boss Simon Grayson must consider the fitness of Lee Holmes and Keith Keane ahead of the rescheduled npower League One clash with Oldham at Deepdale.
Holmes opened the scoring in fine style during Saturday's comfortable 3-0 win over struggling Scunthorpe but the former Southampton winger was forced off shortly before half-time with a tight hamstring.
Utility man Keane, who successfully switched from full-back to a midfield role over the Easter period, will require hernia surgery in the near future and it remains to be seen how many more games he can be nursed through.
The duo's potential absences could mean opportunities to start for midfielder John Welsh and winger Jeffrey Monakana.
Long-term absentee Scott Laird (broken leg) is back in training but not yet ready for first-team action.
