Huntington replaced Patrick Bauer who snapped the Achilles tendon in his left leg in the latter stages of the 3-2 win at AFC Bournemouth and is ruled out for the season.

This is the centre-back's 291st appearance in a North End shirt.

Apart from the change at the heart of the defence, PNE manager Alex Neil stuck with the other 10 players who started at Bournemouth.
