Mysterious future for Marrow
Alex Marrow's future at Preston remains shrouded in mystery ahead of Chesterfield's visit to Deepdale.
Marrow has made four appearances since joining on loan from Crystal Palace until the end of the season, but boss Graham Westley refused to be drawn on the 22-year-old utility man's absence from Preston's squad for the 3-0 defeat at Colchester on Saturday amid rumours his spell has been cut short.
Westley told the Lancashire Evening Post: "Alex wasn't in the squad which travelled and he wasn't in the 16. The players who get selected should be the conversational point."
Strikers Iain Hume (hamstring) and Jamie Proctor (groin) could become greater conversational points themselves having featured for the last half hour at the Western Homes Community Stadium, stepping up their involvement following recent injury absences.
Youngster George Miller will be pushing to retain his place in midfield after the 20-year-old made a full debut at the weekend.
Neil Mellor (knee) and Adam Barton (dislocated ankle and broken leg) remain long-term absentees.
Chesterfield expect to have no new problems.
Assistant manager Mark Crossley revealed that a few unnamed players are nursing `the usual knocks and niggles' from Saturday's home win over Tranmere but he does not anticipate any new absentees ahead of Tuesday night.
On-loan defender James Hurst is closing in on a return after missing the last five matches with an ankle injury.
The game against Preston looks like coming too soon for him but the West Brom youngster could be in contention for the trip to Stevenage at the weekend.
Midfielder Jimmy Juan is also close to a comeback after two games on the sidelines with his ankle problem.
Full-back Gregor Robertson will remain out with a hamstring injury.
Preston frustrated by Spireites
Graham Westley left the pitch to a chorus of boos after his Preston side saw their winless run extended to four games in a goalless draw with lowly Chesterfield.
Andy Procter and Danny Mayor wasted Preston's best chances before Chesterfield midfielder Mark Allott's shot was blocked. And it was the relegation-threatened Spireites who went closest to stealing the points when former North End defender Neal Trotman's injury-time header rattled the bar.
Jordan Bowery's looping volley from distance went close to breaking the deadlock for the visitors after 22 minutes before Procter miscued from the edge of the box.
Preston controlled possession after the break but showed few signs of creating an opener, much to the audible displeasure of the home fans.
Danny Mayor's effort from 15 yards was just inches away from giving Preston the lead, before Chesterfield went close when Allott's goalbound shot was deflected clear.
And in injury time Trotman's fierce header had Thorsten Stuckmann beaten but not the bar as Preston held on for a draw.
