Match Preview

Brown to give duo debuts Preston boss Phil Brown is set to hand league debuts to Clarke Carlisle and Brian McLean when his side open their campaign at home to Colchester. North End this week secured the services of former Falkirk defender McLean, signing the Scot on a two-year deal after he featured in four of their pre-season encounters. Carlisle has joined on a one-year loan deal from Lancashire neighbours Burnley while Graham Alexander has also arrived at Deepdale from Turf Moor on a one-year deal. Goalkeeper Iain Turner is looking to make his first appearance as a Preston player after spending 17 games on loan from Everton last term. Conor McLaughlin is doubtful with hamstring injury, Ian Ashbee is set to miss out with a knee problem while David Gray is definitely out with a broken leg sustained against Norwich in March. Colchester striker Steven Gillespie will be checked over although the striker is likely to be fit. Gillespie sustained a slight groin injury during pre-season and has been monitored by manager John Ward in the build up to the big kick-off at Deepdale. Goalkeeper Ben Williams has returned to training following his worrying summer viral infection but the encounter comes too soon for him. Midfielder Andy Bond will not be risked having suffered a serious head injury in a collision with team-mate Mark Cousins during a recent friendly against Ipswich. Youngster Jordan Sanderson also misses out having broken a bone in his foot during pre-season. But there could well be debuts for summer signings Michael Rose, Tom Eastman and Karl Duguid, the latter of whom - seventh on the Us list of record appearance holders - has returned to the club three years after his departure.

Match Report

Henderson at the double Ian Henderson grabbed a deadly double as Colchester ensured a disastrous opening day for Preston boss Phil Brown. The striker scored twice in the second half to leave Brown's boys looking anything but promotion contenders. The visitors led in the 12th minute when a free-kick was turned into Anthony Wordsworth's path and the midfielder did the rest with a fierce shot into the bottom corner. Henderson then added a second shortly after the restart when he collected a pass from Wordsworth and fired home from 12 yards. North End replied through Neil Mellor's clinical shot on the hour but they continued to wobble alarmingly in defence and were punished accordingly. In the 65th minute, Colchester grabbed their third as Henderson latched onto a header from Kayode Odejayi and hit a 20-yard shot into the net. Preston refused to surrender and scored again in the 70th minute when Paul Coutts found the net from distance but Odejayi wrapped up the scoring six minutes later when he fired home from six yards out.
