Preston v Bolton preview
Last Updated: 31/08/18 11:38am
Preston midfielder Paul Gallagher returns from suspension for the visit of Bolton.
But the hosts will be without Ryan Ledson, who starts a three-match ban of his own following his sending-off at Leeds in midweek.
Captain Tom Clarke is back in the fold having missed the last two games with a groin injury, while Alan Browne is available after a scan earlier in the week revealed no significant problem. Calum Woods and Sean Maguire (both hamstring) and Billy Bodin (knee) all remain unavailable.

Bolton manager Phil Parkinson has no new injury concerns as everyone has trained throughout the week but may consider changes after last weekend's first Championship defeat of the season.
Parkinson was criticised for making five alterations ahead of the loss at Sheffield United but is unlikely to retain an unchanged side at Deepdale. Summer signing Erhun Oztumer could come into the starting line-up.
Preston are unbeaten in their last four league matches against Bolton (W2 D2), last losing against the Trotters in the 2000-01 second tier play-off final.
The last two league meetings between these sides at Deepdale have ended goalless.
After beating QPR on the opening day of the season, Preston have failed to win any of their last four in the Championship (D1 L3), failing to score on three occasions.
Bolton haven't won any of their last 15 matches in September in all competitions (D5 L10), failing to score in each of their last 10 matches in that month while losing the last eight in a row.
Bolton have won 10 points from a possible 15 this season, their best return at this stage of a campaign in either of England's top two divisions since 2004-05 in the Premier League (10 pts).
Preston's Callum Robinson has attempted the most shots without scoring a single goal in the Championship this season (14).
David Prutton predicts: 1-1 (11/2 with Sky Bet)
