Football - Double trouble for Preston

Attacking duo Joe Garner and Kevin Davies will both miss Preston's trip to Carlisle through suspension.

North End's top scorer Garner was only just back from a three-game suspension when he picked up a fifth caution of the season in Saturday's 3-0 loss to Brentford, a result which ended the Lilywhites' 11-game unbeaten streak.

Veteran forward Davies also has a quintet of yellow cards so will sit out the one game but boss Simon Grayson does have on-loan striker Paul Gallagher back from a three-match suspension of his own.

He will be expected to slot straight in while the versatile Jack King (foot) could also play a part after returning to the bench on Saturday.
