Preston striker Neil Mellor will be out of action until late February after being told he requires surgery on a hernia.

The former Liverpool forward, 26, requires the operation to cure a troublesome muscle problem, and will go under the knife on Tuesday.

His absence is a blow to North End's Coca-Cola Championship promotion campaign as they bid to reach the top flight for the first time since 1961.
