Luton will check on the fitness of Dan Potts ahead of Preston’s visit in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.
The defender suffered a hamstring injury in the draw with Stoke at the end of February and missed last weekend’s stalemate with Wigan.
Martin Cranie deputised in Potts’ absence and could slot in at left-back again, but boss Graeme Jones was boosted by the return of defender Sonny Bradley, midfielder Luke Berry and winger Kazenga LuaLuga at the DW Stadium.
Goalkeeper James Shea (broken finger), defender Brendan Galloway (knee) and midfielder Eunan O’Kane (broken leg) are out for the foreseeable future.
Preston should have Brad Potts available for the Kenilworth Road clash after the midfielder missed the 3-1 defeat to QPR with a slight knock.
Boss Alex Neil was hopeful he would be fit to feature against Luton alongside Paul Gallagher, who recovered from illness to play last Saturday.
A hamstring injury keeps Ben Pearson out of the reckoning for now, but the midfielder could return before the month is out.
Midfielders Tom Bayliss (ankle) and Billy Bodin (Achilles) plus forward Louis Moult (knee) remain long-term absentees for North End.
