Preston North End could be forced into the transfer market by Izzy Brown's injury
Preston North End suffered a big injury blow less than three weeks before the start of the season after Izzy Brown ruptured his Achilles tendon.
Brown was one of four summer signings made to date by the Lilywhites, with a loan deal for Daniel Iversen and the addition of a striker still to do.
