Match Preview

Lilywhites without Nicholson Preston will be without Barry Nicholson when they host Stevenage in npower League One. Nicholson is sidelined with an ankle injury, while fellow midfielder Ian Ashbee remains a doubt due to a knee complaint. As a result, veteran Graham Alexander is set to continue in the middle of the park alongside on-loan Barnsley man Nathan Doyle, having returned to the fray in Tuesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern section semi-final loss to Chesterfield on penalties. Iain Hume is battling to be in contention following a lengthy knee-injury absence. The Canadian forward was rated as 50/50 by boss Phil Brown for the Spireites clash in midweek but failed to make the matchday squad. In their last league outing, North End halted a nine-match winless run by beating Hartlepool 1-0 at Victoria Park courtesy of Neil Mellor's first-half strike. Stevenage could be without Ronnie Henry. Defender Henry suffered a leg injury late in the first half of the FA Cup second-round victory at non-league Stourbridge last weekend and had to be replaced by Joel Byrom. The versatile Darius Charles continued his comeback from injury with a run-out in the Hertfordshire Cup in midweek. Peter Winn, back from a loan spell at Cambridge, played in that game against non-league neighbours Hitchin, while fellow striker Don Cowan also featured as he looks to prove his fitness and break back into first-team contention. Midfielders Stacy Long and Robin Shroot and forward Byron Harrison are options for manager Graham Westley should he wish to make changes.

Match Report

Wasteful Preston held by Boro Neil Mellor was the main culprit as Preston wasted a host of chances and had to settle for a point from a goalless stalemate at home to Stevenage. Mellor was the hero last time out in league action, bagging the winner against Hartlepool to give North End a first victory since September, but the former Liverpool striker wasted two great chances to down Boro. Mellor went through on goal thanks to Adam Barton's excellent defence-splitting pass midway through the first half, but he found himself too far wide to get his shot on target. He then went close again just after the hour mark, capitalising on Lawrie Wilson's failure to deal with a long ball forward only to put his shot just wide of the far post. Stevenage substitute Darius Charles was unfortunate not to score 10 minutes from time, with Thorsten Stuckmann pulling off an excellent stop from his curling effort, Soon afterwards, Preston's Danny Mayor hit the outside of a post with a 20-yard shot, much to the agony of the anxious home supporters.
