Hume harbouring Hudds hope
Preston North End,
Preston's Iain Hume will be hoping to overcome a foot injury in time for the match against Huddersfield.
The striker sustained the knock after scoring the opening goal in the 1-1 draw against manager Graham Westley's former club Stevenage on Easter Monday. Defender Nicky Hunt is set to undergo a fitness test after being left out of the squad to face Boro with an unspecified knock. Midfielder Barry Nicholson (hamstring) and striker Neil Mellor (knee) will definitely miss out. The Lilywhites have not won in six matches and Westley could look to make some changes, with Jamie Proctor and Graham Cummins providing alternative attacking options for a side who have failed to score more than once in 16 of their last 17 games.
