Preston goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard and defender Marnick Vermijl are a doubt for the Lancashire derby with Burnley on Friday.

Lindegaard was substituted at half-time in the 2-2 draw with Birmingham in midweek, while Vermijl also went off in that game with a foot injury.

Burnley are expected to welcome back defender James Tarkowski (groin).

Striker Lukas Jutkiewicz (knee) played in the development squad in midweek but this game comes too soon.

Burnley
