Grayson seeking home comforts
Simon Grayson is confident Preston can collect three points at Deepdale for the first time this season when Oldham visit on Monday night.
North End have yet to taste defeat in Sky Bet League One in the current campaign yet their first victory only came last weekend after four successive draws.
Grayson insists, though, that he has seen enough in the stalemates with Wolves and MK Dons to encourage him ahead of the Latics clash.
"In both the home games we've played in the league, against MK Dons and Wolves, we could have quite easily have won those games," he told Preston's official website.
"We know what we need to do, Oldham's a tough test for us but if we play in the manner we have done in the last couples of games then we won't be far away from winning another game and that's what it's all about.
"I'm sure the players have got a lot of confidence from the way we've played in the last two games, the chances that we've taken and the chances that we've created and being solid as well."
Despite being unbeaten, Grayson's men lie ninth in the table ahead of Saturday afternoon's fixtures, a position the boss attributes to a tricky run of games.
He added: "We've had a tough start, unbeaten, would have liked to have won a couple more games instead of drawing them, but we're where we are and we're going along nicely.
"But, as I said last week, there's still a long more to come from this team and hopefully that'll come to fruition over the course of the next 40 games."
Preston will be without midfielder Chris Humphrey and forward Iain Hume.
Humphrey has been called up to Jamaica's national side ahead of their World Cup qualifier against Panama, while Hume is with the Canada squad at their training camp in Spain.
Teenage midfielders Will Hayhurst and Jeffrey Monakana are in contention to deputise in Humphrey's absence, while John Welsh will also be hoping for a recall.
Forward Jack King (foot) remains out after having surgery but Grayson has no other injury or suspension concerns.
Oldham will be without three players due to international duty .
Edijs Joksts (Latvia), Kirk Millar and Carl Winchester (both Northern Ireland) are all featuring in Under-21 qualifiers and will miss out.
Danny Philliskirk marked his Oldham debut by scoring twice as Lee Johnson's side eased through to the second round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy with a convincing 4-1 victory at Shrewsbury and he will hope to retain his place.
And while Connor Brown is still sidelined with a knee injury, Johnson will check on Charlie MacDonald who has missed their last three games with a dead-leg.
