Preston are without defender Paul Huntington for the Carabao Cup third-round clash with Brighton at Deepdale.
Huntington was booked in the cup victories against Mansfield and Derby and the two yellow cards have triggered a one-match ban in the competition.
Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma starts a three-match ban after his weekend red card at Newcastle.
But it is unclear whether Dale Stephens will replace him in what will be a much-changed Seagulls line-up.
Stephens picked up a knock in the 4-0 second-round win over Portsmouth last week and has been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Burnley.
