PNE v Newcastle United Preview

20 July 2017

Preston North End play their first home pre-season game of the summer on Saturday when Alex Neil’s men entertain last season’s Championship winners Newcastle United at Deepdale.

Rafa Benitez brings his Magpies to PR1 as they return from a pre-season training camp in Ireland, just as the Lilywhites did seven days ago.

The Spanish boss is likely to have some recent recruits in his squad as they look ahead to their Premier League campaign, whilst the North End fans and new manager could get their first look at summer recruit from Manchester United, Josh Harrop, who has come through a few days training this week.

After a week where the majority of the squad have got at least two hours of work into their legs across the two fixtures against Morecambe and Accrington Stanley, it could be time for a number to get through 90 minutes against the north east outfit, whilst John Welsh and Calum Woods could be closer to returning after extended periods on the sidelines.

As well as Premier League opposition there will be a Premier League official, with Jon Moss appointed as the match referee for the game, as the new Deepdale surface is used for the first time.

Another new feature will be the brand new Tempobet sponsored home shirt, which will be worn by the first team for the very first time, with all of the new kits being unveiled on PNE.Com on Friday.

Fans are advised, as always, to arrive in advance, particularly for a pre-season fixture, with tickets available now online on www.mypne.com – right up to 12 noon on the day of the game, with collection from the ground - and in person or over the phone during ticket office opening hours, which is open 9am until 6pm on Friday and from 9am on the day of the game.

Hospitality in the Sir Tom Finney Lounge or Invincibles Pavilion can also still be booked, please contact the commercial department on 0344 856 1960 to book a place in one of our lounges or for information on executive boxes.

Ticket prices for both Saturday’s game and Tuesday’s clash with Lancashire rivals Burnley are £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and just £1 for U11s! All U14s must be accompanied by an adult as per a standard matchday.

Prices for the hospitality lounges are £35, with concessions priced at £30, this package includes a one course hot dish, half-time refreshments and executive seating. Executive boxes are available for £800 plus vat for ten people, which includes a two course meal.

If you cannot get to the game, we will be once again operating a live stream for iFollow Premium customers. Jonathan Breeze will be joined by former PNE midfielder Brian O’Neil live on air from 2.45pm. Subscribers are reminded that they must watch the game from either a laptop or desktop device during pre-season, as the iFollow App to allow mobile or tablet use is still to be launched.

Subscribers are also reminded that live streaming of league games, which will commence from 5th August, will only be available outside of the UK and Ireland – within the UK and Ireland audio commentary only will be allowed due to the broadcast rights of the EFL’s partners.

There will be no in-stadia betting facilities available at the pre-season friendlies, nor will there be a half-time 50/50 lottery operated, however, both of these will be back for the opening game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday on 5th August – with tickets for this game already on general sale.

Match Reports

PNE 1 Newcastle United 1

22 July 2017

Tom Barkhuizen kept up his excellent pre-season form as the Lilywhites came from behind to continue their unbeaten pre-season campaign.

In their first run out at Deepdale under the management of Alex Neil, they found themselves behind early on, when Aleksandar Mitrovic converted from close range, after a Paul Dummett shot had been turned away by Chris Maxwell.

But the Lilywhites grew into the game and deservedly drew level just after the hour mark, when Barkhuizen converted on the volley after Greg Cunningham’s left wing cross had been flicked on nicely for him by the Magpies’ former Blackburn Rovers centre half Grant Hanley.

For Neil’s PNE, wearing the new home strip for the first time in pleasant summer conditions in PR1, it was a tough start, as Maxwell was needed to deny Siem de Jong’s effort from Mitrovic’s nod down inside 90 seconds.

The opener came on eight minutes as Geordie-born Dummett checked in from the left before curling a right-footed effort through a crowd of PNE players towards the bottom right hand corner of the Town End goal, only for Maxwell – who must have seen it late – to get down at full stretch to palm the ball out. Unfortunately for the home side, the ball was pushed into the path of the visiting No.45, who slammed the ball into the bottom left hand corner from ten yards out in a right hand channel.

The Serbian forward almost doubled his side’s tally just before the half hour mark with a low shot from the back left corner of six yard box following a right wing corner by skipper Jonjo Shelvey. The shot looked destined to nestle in the inside side-netting of the goal, only for Marnick Vermijl to make a last ditch clearance on the line.

However, by this stage the Lilywhites were looking much stronger and deservedly drew level 12 minutes before half-time.

Captain Greg Cunningham received the ball in space down the left hand flank from Daniel Johnson and delivered a first time cross into the six yard box. Hanley got up highest, competing with Jordan Hugill, but only flicked it back into the path of Barkhuizen who drilled the volley back into the bottom left corner of the goal from ten yards out.

And they were unlucky not to find themselves in front before the interval. This time Johnson fed Barkhuizen in the right hand corner of the box, he outpaced Hanley before clipping a cross into the six yard box. Callum Robinson managed to get a glancing header onto the ball, but it found its way through to Hugill at the back post, however, the No.9 could only find the side-netting.

Just before the hour mark, with his last touch of the game, Hugill forced half-time substitute Karl Darlow into a fine save. Another Barkhuizen cross created the opportunity and the Middlesbrough-born striker tried an acrobatic volley, but the former Nottngham Forest ’keeper tipped the ball wide. From the resulting corner Ben Davies’ header from Johnson’s cross wasn’t far away either.

The visitors were still a threat with their pace and power, Maxwell denying De Jong after Jack Colback’s pull back and then forcing out, two-handed, Chancel Mbemba’s vicious shot from 15 yards.

For North End, the introduction of Josh Harrop was another fillip. He showed plenty to excite the home fans with his 30 minute cameo, illustrating his pace, direct approach and quality touch after only a few days of training.

However, neither side could fashion a winner in the closing stages and the game finished level in front of a healthy crowd of over 7,000 inside Deepdale.

PNE line-up: Maxwell, Vermijl, Cunningham (c), Pearson, Huntington, Davies, Barkhuizen, Browne (Harrop, 58), Hugill (Doyle, 58), Johnson (Pringle, 82), Robinson (Horgan, 67). Subs not used: Hudson, Boyle, Grimshaw, Spurr, Meulensteen, Earl.
