Preston North End could be without Joe Garner as the striker has been asked to decide if he will join Rangers.

Striker Simon Makienok (thigh) and midfielder Ben Pearson (illness) are both doubts.

Derby County midfielder Jeff Hendrick is out with a hamstring strain suffered in Saturday’s loss at Barnsley.

Striker Darren Bent has recovered from his ankle problem, while forward Abdoul Camara has recovered from his groin and hip flexor injuries.
