Brown to assess duo
New Preston boss Phil Brown will assess the fitness of defensive duo Wayne Brown and Leon Cort ahead of the FA Cup third-round home clash with Nottingham Forest.
Brown missed the defeat at Crystal Palace with a hamstring strain and Cort also missed out at Selhurst Park with a similar problem.
Despite North End suffering a third straight defeat at Palace, the performance provided reason for optimism and Brown may be reluctant to make many changes.
Preston remain short of numbers but Brown is hoping to make upto six new signings after being installed as Darren Ferguson's replacement at Deepdale.
The former Hull manager, who has penned an 18-month deal, said: "I need to be proactive in the transfer market."
Forest midfielder Paul McKenna has recovered from illness and should return to the squad against his former club.
The Reds captain has missed the last six matches - he was initially sidelined by a groin injury before picking up a virus.
Boss Billy Davies has no new injury problems for the third round tie but the Scot will be without Marcus Tudgay, who turned his loan from Sheffield Wednesday into a permanent deal this week, as the striker is cup-tied.
Defender Julian Bennett and forward Joe Garner have returned from loan spells at Crystal Palace and Huddersfield respectively but must wait to see if they are included in the squad.
No dream start for Brown
Luke Chambers struck an 89th-minute winner to send Nottingham Forest into the FA Cup fourth round with a 2-1 victory as Phil Brown made a losing start to his Preston reign.
North End midfielder Darren Carter fired the hosts ahead in the 35th minute with a 25-yard strike but Paul Anderson levelled with a superb effort five minutes after the restart and defender Chambers prodded home the winner from close range.
Brown returned to management on Thursday when he penned an 18-month contract at Deepdale and was tasked with saving the npower Championship strugglers from relegation.
The 51-year-old had been out of work since leaving Hull last year and his immediate aim will be to inspire an upturn in fortunes at the division's bottom club.
North End are seven points adrift of safety after a disastrous campaign which saw Darren Ferguson axed after less than a year in charge.
Staying in the Championship remains the overriding priority for the famous old Lancashire outfit, but their first-half performance offered cause for optimism.
They were vibrant from the outset against a Forest side managed by ex-Preston boss Billy Davies and who harbour ambitions of winning promotion this season.
In the third minute, Preston threatened when Danny Mayor crossed dangerously and Chris Brown saw his 12-yard header fly wide.
Two minutes later, Forest orchestrated their first meaningful attack when David McGoldrick saw his 12-yard shot flash just wife of Andy Lonergan's goal.
North End were then dealt a blow in the 15th minute when striker Brown succumbed to injury and was replaced by Paul Hayes.
Three minutes later Forest threatened again when McGoldrick fired goalwards from 18 yards but his effort drew a save from Lonergan.
The pendulum swung back in Preston's favour in the 26th minute when an inswinging corner from Keith Treacy was greeted with a firm header from Craig Morgan.
The ball flashed just wide and Hayes then saw a 12-yard shot comfortably saved by Forest stopper Lee Camp.
Moments later Preston led when Carter found the net with a superb left-footed strike which flew into the bottom left corner from 25 yards.
Forest striker Robert Earnshaw warmed Lonergan's hands from 20 yards in the 40th minute but five minutes after the restart the visitors were level.
McGoldrick found Anderson and he embarked on a fine run from halfway and a sweet left-footed finish from 12 yards.
Preston sought to respond strongly but midfielder Barry Nicholson volleyed over the crossbar and Forest began to regain control.
Chris Gunter fired just wide from 12 yards and Earnshaw also threatened before Forest claimed victory in the closing stages when Chambers prodded home from six yards after an inswinging corner from Lewis McGugan fell to him.
