Preston North End boss Ryan Lowe expects to have the same players available for Monday night’s game against Leicester City.

The Lilywhites are coming off three consecutive defeats to Norwich City, Southampton, and Queens Park Rangers. And the likelihood is that North End will host a club trying to earn promotion with a win at Deepdale. Loanee Liam Millar returned to action at Loftus Road, while first-team regulars Ben Whiteman, Brad Potts, and Ali McCann remained out. Lowe expects this to continue during the Foxes’ visit.

“Whitey won’t be anywhere near,” Lowe stated Thursday morning. “Pottsy is on the grass, but there’s no need to rush them through in case they get harmed again. Ali McCann is the same, thus their chances of missing the next two games are pretty strong. Pottsy may return for a few days of training near the finish, but isn’t there a risk involved? Aside from that, the squad will remain the same as it has been for some time.

“This is our third day of bounce (training), and the guys will have a rest day tomorrow. We will put in more work on Saturday and Sunday because I believe it is necessary. We’re up against a good squad that’s looking to win the league, let alone get promoted. We have a totally fit group, with the exception of a few players who have been injured for a while, and we have enjoyed a good few days. We obviously have options, and we have to choose the strongest combination that we believe can produce results.”

Lowe continued, “The routine has changed because we won’t play until Monday. We needed to give the guys some healing time, and we’d had a terrible week, hadn’t we? We had a difficult week, both psychologically and physically, due to our travel. We received the lads on Tuesday, debriefed the game, held some unit meetings, and discussed it with them.

“The results haven’t been good and we weren’t happy with the performances, of course. But, I believe in this group – they have been fantastic to work with all season. All I want from them – and all they want from each other – is to give it our best shot for the next two games. This group have shown what they can do, against good teams. We’ve competed with them and that’s got to be the name of the game for the last two.”
