Mackie and Baptiste to serve bans

Jamie Mackie and Alex Baptiste both set to face bans following red cards at Preston

JAMIE Mackie and Alex Baptiste are both set for a spell on the sidelines through suspension after they were sent off at Preston this weekend.

Macke was shown a straight red card for a late challenge on North End captain Tom Clarke, which means he faces a three-game ban.

As a result, he stands to miss upcoming fixtures with Leeds (H), Birmingham (A) and Bristol City (H). 

Meanwhile, Baptiste will also have to sit out our home game with Leeds after he received a second yellow card after the final whistle at Deepdale for dissent.
