As you were for North End

Preston manager Simon Grayson has no injury or suspension concerns ahead of his side's FA Cup third-round replay against Ipswich.

Assistant boss Glynn Snodin has revealed there were "a few niggles" following Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Wolves but he expects everybody to be fit.

Stuart Beavon has overcome a virus and gives Grayson another option up front as he looks for a response from his promotion chasers.

The former Blackpool and Leeds chief is considering freshening up his team, which could mean recalls to the starting line-up for the likes of Kevin Davies and Keith Keane.

Ipswich will be without half a dozen players.

Influential quartet Luke Chambers (hamstring), Daryl Murphy (thigh), Aaron Cresswell (knee) and Cole Skuse (dead leg) - who have 101 appearances between them this season - will all be missing at Deepdale.

Fringe player Anthony Wordsworth (illness) is also sidelined along with striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, who sustained a hamstring injury on his Town debut in the initial 1-1 draw between the two sides.

Academy trio Kyle Hammond, Byron Lawrence and Matt Clarke have been called into Mick McCarthy's travelling party for the tie, which will see winners meet Nottingham Forest in the fourth round.
