Preston North End manager, Simon Grayson will wait until the last minute before announcing the team that will face Burnley in the derby game.
Anders Lindegaard suffered an injury in the match against Birmingham and was withdrawn at half-time. He will have to face a late fitness test to determine whether he is able to take his place on the field. Alternatively, he might be replaced by Chris Kirkland.
MarnickVermijl is another player that is uncertain for the game against Burnley and might be replaced by the returning Calum Woods.
On the other hand, Chris Humphrey, Liam Grimshaw, and Stevie May are all still out and will not feature in the game.
Burnleyhave been boosted by the return by James Tarkowski, who was out of the team that faced Middlesbrough. He suffered a groin strain in training, but it is unlikely that he will start the game.
Anders Lindegaard, who is currently on loan from West Bromwich Albion, might be interested in staying with Preston North End on a long-term deal. With his chances of getting playing time at West Brom slim, the goalkeeper might be interested in getting a permanent deal with Preston.
Lindegaard admits that with Ben Foster’s return from injury it will be difficult for him to play at West Brom and that he does not see himself returning them. He would like to stay with Preston, and he is currently in talks with the club over a permanent deal.
He added that the talks are going on and that there is a big possibility that he will stay at the club on a permanent deal. We will have to wait for the summer transfer window to know whether the deal will go through or not.
