Match Preview

Ainsworth hoping for recall Wycombe midfielder Gareth Ainsworth will hope to start against his former club when Preston visit Adams Park. The 38-year-old was rested as Wanderers halted a five-game losing streak with a surprise 1-0 home victory over high-flying Sheffield United on Saturday. Ainsworth, who has had three spells with the Lilywhites during his career, will have to dislodge one of Stuart Lewis, Ben Harding, Scott Donnelly or Joel Grant if he is to start the match. Manager Gary Waddock, who celebrated his 100th game in charge of the club at the weekend, reported no fresh problems. He is able to call upon Matt Bloomfield, Marvin McCoy, Elliot Benyon, Ben Strevens and the fit-again John Halls, as well as Ainsworth, should he wish to make any changes. Preston will be without Paul Parry following his sending off in Saturday's 2-1 win over Tranmere. Left-back Parry was dismissed for two bookable offences so must serve a one-game suspension. Defender Steven Smith has recovered from his troublesome calf injury and is likely to start in Parry's absence. Fellow full-back David Gray is also in contention after coming on for the final 14 minutes at the weekend which was his first league appearance since breaking his leg in March. Young goalkeeper Andreas Arestidou should retain his place in the side. He will continue in the absence of Iain Turner, who is nearing a return after suffering a foot injury against Yeovil earlier this month.

Match Report

Preston edge thriller Neil Mellor struck midway through the second half to earn Preston a thrilling 4-3 win against Wycombe at Adams Park. The visitors - who climbed to second with the win - started brightly with Mellor poking home his first from close range after seven minutes before unselfishly feeding Iain Hume two minutes later to tuck the ball under Nikki Bull from 10 yards. Wycombe responded almost immediately and former Preston star Gareth Ainsworth swept the ball home from two yards in the 12th minute after a fumble from Andreas Arestidou. Incredibly the Chairboys were level two minutes later when Conor McLaughlin bundled over Kadeem Harris and Scott Donnelly coolly dispatched the penalty. The turnaround was complete in the 27th minute when Donnelly's inswinging corner was headed home at the near post by Stuart Beavon to give Wycombe the lead. Hume raced clear of the Wycombe defence and delicately chipped over the advancing Bull for his second to level for Preston after 64 minutes, before Mellor smashed into the roof of the net for his seventh league goal of season 17 minutes from time.
