Wednesday hope to welcome back skipper Jones

Wednesday will be hoping skipper Rob Jones is fit for the New Year’s Eve trip to Preston.

Jones left the field early in the second half at Walsall on Boxing Day with the recurrence of a back injury and was missed as Wednesday conceded two goals in injury time.

Nicky Weaver, who missed the Walsall trip due to a tooth abscess, now has a back problem while longer-term absentees Gary Madine and Lewis Buxton are unlikely to figure at Deepdale.

Gary Megson also has to consider whether to start with Arsenal loanee Sanchez Watt in preference to either Chris O’Grady or Ryan Lowe.

Wednesday will once again be backed by 4,000-plus fans, knowing that victory could take us back to second spot in division one.
