            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Pottawattamie County, Gregory W. Steensland, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (4 pages)

            Jackie Taylor appeals from the denial of his application for postconviction relief (PCR).  He claims PCR counsel provided ineffective assistance by not calling him to testify at the PCR hearing.  OPINION HOLDS: Taylor’s general assertion he should have been called to testify at the PCR hearing and the limited record we have before us is not enough for us to decide Taylor’s claim of ineffective assistance against PCR counsel.  We affirm the district court’s denial of Taylor’s application for PCR and preserve for a successive PCR application his claim of ineffective assistance against PCR counsel.
