Cardiff City manager Dave Jones makes just one change to the side which drew 2-2 with league leaders Watford. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink returns in place of Steve MacLean after 1 game on the sides.

That means that right-back Kevin McNaughton and central midfielder Stephen McPhail both passed their late fitnes tests after picking up leg knocks.

Schmeichel, Capaldi, McNaughton, Loovens, Johnson, Ledley, Whittingham, McPhail, Rae, Hasselbaink, Parry.

Subs: Oakes, Purse, Blake, MacLean, Ramsey.

Preston’s Billy Jones misses out with a hernia problem so Alan Ervine makes 1 enforced change.

Former Liverpool man Neil Mellor is relegated to the bench along with Chris Sedgewick, Neal and Agyemang the replacements.

Lonergan, Carter, St Ledger, Chilvers, Hill, Neal, Davidson, McKenna, Whaley, Gallagher, Agyemang.

Subs: Neal, Hawley, Mellor, Nicholls, Sedgewick.
