King softens Huntington blow

Last Updated: Tue, 31 Dec 2013 12:34

Full-back Paul Huntington will serve a one-game ban when Preston face Port Vale at Deepdale.

Huntington, like fellow defender Tom Clarke, had accrued four yellow cards heading in to Sunday's game at Shrewsbury and while the latter avoided a fifth caution prior to the January amnesty, Huntington picked up another booking meaning he sits out.

Boss Simon Grayson has hinted Jack King, who has been used in a variety of positions this term, could be recalled after resting him on Sunday following his recent foot injury.

Elsewhere, Grayson was impressed with the way substitutes Lee Holmes, Paul Gallagher and Iain Hume turned the tide in North End's favour in Shropshire and they could be rewarded with places in the starting line-up.
