Preston North End centre-back Patrick Bauer will miss the rest of the season following an Achilles tendon injury.

The 28-year-old was hurt late on in his side's 3-2 win at Bournemouth on Tuesday, having earlier scored their third goal at the Vitality Stadium.

"We want to wish him a speedy recovery and get him back up and ready as soon as possible," Preston manager Alex Neil told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"When he's available, he's an ever-present and big character at the club."

Former Charlton defender Bauer had missed just three league games so far this season.
