Cretaker managers Graham Alexander and David Unsworth are looking for a goalscorer while Neil Mellor is sidelined with injury.

'Jake is a physical lad, he has got a decent touch and a bit of pace about him,' said Alexander.

'He is a young lad who is hungry to come to Preston North End and prove a point.

'We want people who see Preston North End will give players a chance to get recognition of how good they are as players and have a point to prove. I think Jake is one of them (and) if he gives the sort of commitment that he has shown to try and get here then that will do for us.'
