Preston North End manager Alex Neil made three changes to the Lilywhites side for the Championship clash with AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Alan Browne, Joe Rafferty and Ryan Ledson come back into the starting XI, Browne and Rafferty having missed the 4-1 defeat at Watford because of suspension.

Ledson had been a second-half substitute at Vicarage Road but returned to bolster the midfield.
