On-loan Preston duo Iain Hume and Ritchie De Laet are set to make their final appearances for the club in the home clash with Ipswich.
Barnsley striker Hume will be hoping to sign off in style as his 93-day loan draws to an end.
On-loan Manchester United defender De Laet's loan also ends after the weekend but North End boss Darren Ferguson is hoping to secure his services until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old arrived in November on an emergency loan and has impressed in his three appearances so far.
Leon Cort and Wayne Brown again look set to form Preston's central defensive partnership as centre-half Sean St Ledger and skipper Callum Davidson battle back from recent injuries.
