Stoke duo Danny Pugh and Michael Tonge have joined Preston on one-month loan deals.

The pair have found first-team opportunities hard to come by with the Potters this term, making just seven appearances between them.

It has been decided that they would be better served taking in a spell elsewhere, giving them an opportunity to work on their match sharpness.

Winger Pugh has plenty of prior experience of life in the Football League, having taken in a spell at Leeds and a two-year stint with Preston earlier in his career.

Midfield ace Tonge is also no stranger to the Championship, as he made a name for himself during seven successful years at Sheffield United and has also spent a previous spell on loan with the Lilywhites.

Both men are expected to go straight into Preston's squad for their away date at high-flying Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

They will then remain at Deepdale until Darren Ferguson's side face Watford at Vicarage Road on 18th December.
