Alex Baptiste and Marnick Vermijl available as Preston host Nottingham Forest

Preston have Alex Baptiste and Marnick Vermijl back against Nottingham Forest.

Manager Simon Grayson had been getting by without a recognised right-back for the past five fixtures but the international break has allowed Baptiste (knee) and Vermijl (hernia) to recuperate.

Tyias Browning (knee) is still a couple of weeks away and Calum Woods (knee) is expected to return before the end of the campaign.

Midfielder John Welsh (calf) remains unavailable to Grayson.

Forward Jamie Ward returns to the Forest squad after missing out against his former clubs Burton and Derby through suspension.

Full-back Eric Lichaj was missing from the squad against Derby but has been training during the international break and could come back into the reckoning.

As could Matt Mills, who is also back in training after a groin injury, but fellow centre-back Jack Hobbs is still not ready to return despite making good progress with his foot problem.

The Reds players who were away on international duty have all returned unscathed for Mark Warburton's second match as Forest boss following the dramatic 2-2 draw with Derby.
