Ireland International Sean Maguire has been ruled out of action for the ‘best part of a couple of months’ through injury.
Speaking to the Preston website manager Alex Neill said “Sean was taken off as a precaution, we didn’t think much of it. Because of his history, we got him scanned and it’s come back a lot worse than what we thought. He will be missing for the best part of a couple of months.
“It’s really bad luck, he was feeling the best he’s ever felt physically and now this has happened which is a huge blow for us and the club.
