Welsh back for Preston

Preston will welcome back captain John Welsh for the home clash with Shrewsbury.

Welsh has missed the last two games through suspension after picking up 10 yellow cards and should return to the starting line-up.

Striker Joe Garner was absent for Good Friday's 1-0 defeat at Brentford with a calf injury and the quick turnaround leaves him doubtful for the Deepdale clash.

North End are hopeful Scott Wiseman will overcome a knee injury in time as boss Simon Grayson contemplates changes.

Joseph Mills is available for the struggling Shrews.

The on-loan Bolton defender has missed the last three games due to suspension but returns to manager Mike Jackson's squad.

Striker Tom Bradshaw could earn a start after coming off the bench to score in the damaging 3-1 defeat to relegation rivals Crewe on Friday following an earlier than expected return from injury.

Midfielder David McAllister misses out with an ankle injury in a game the Shrews have to win as they sit five points from safety.
