Preston North End's players are so exhausted that they are taking the unusual step of a three day break in advance of Saturday's match at The Valley: Fatigue
Apparently they find the length of the journey intimidating. Whether they will be intimidated by the Charlton team is another matter, although I think the Addicks could actually win this match, irrelevant though it is.
There are doubts about keeper Rob Elliot who has a back problem, although he has been training. If he isn't available, Darren Randolph, who has been doing well in training may replace him, although Nicky Weaver could also be available after playing in the reserves. Butterfield and Youga also have fitness problems.
