PNE v Burnley Preview

24 July 2017

There are just two games to go until the real action gets underway and Alex Neil’s side have their last run out at Deepdale before the kick-off when they face Burnley on Tuesday night.

Sean Dyche brings his Clarets to PR1 for a Lancashire derby, which will be the latest part of the Lilywhites’ preparation for their league opener against Sheffield Wednesday at Deepdale in 12 days’ time.

After the draw with Newcastle United on Saturday, the North End boss suggested there would be 90 minutes for more of his squad, after a significant number of them reached that target at the weekend.

John Welsh is closing in on a return to action for the first time since last October 2016 and could feature, whilst Irish duo Sean Maguire and Kevin O’Connor are also available to make their bow in a North End shirt.

Josh Harrop should continue to get more minutes under his belt, after his first half hour in a lilywhite shirt against the Magpies at the weekend.

Bobby Jones take the match official duties for the friendly, with Iain Siddall and Natalie Aspinall running the lines.

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 4.45pm 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 5pm on Monday 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 Tuesday’s clash 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. Anthony Wareing will be joined by former PNE midfielder Paul McKenna live on air from 7.30pm. 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.

PNE 1 Burnley 2

25 July 2017

Sean Maguire introduced himself to the PNE faithful with an impressive solo goal on his home debut against Burnley.

The Irish striker was introduced at half-time, less than 48 hours after arriving in the country, and scored just 21 minutes in to half at Deepdale, however, two set piece goals gave the visitors the win.

Fellow Irishman Jon Walters headed home from close range after Robbie Brady’s free kick mid-way through the first half and another excellent delivery by Brady also brought the second, Kevin Long heading home the No.12’s corner eight minutes after the interval.

The three goalscorers were all from the Emerald Isle and ten of the outfield players who featured on the night were eligible to be selected, hence the presence of the Republic’s assistant manager Roy Keane in the crowd.

But it was home grown talent Josh Earl who created the first opportunity, his cross from the left bringing a shot from Eoin Doyle, which required a good block from Long.

Daniel Johnson almost opened the scoring eight minutes in when the Lilywhites’ first corner came out to him on the edge of the box, but the former Villa man’s shot ricocheted off Josh Harrop – making his first start – and England goalkeeper Tom Heaton smothered a save at the feet of Doyle.

But the opener came for the Clarets on 21 minutes. A controversial foul was awarded close to the left touchline mid-way inside the North End half and Brady delivered a superb cross to the back post which Long headed across goal to give Walters, a summer signing from Stoke City, the easiest of headers from two yards out.

Long showed his aerial abilities and danger just after half-time, heading a Brady corner against the inside of the left hand post, in front of the Burnley fans, but he wasn’t to be denied shortly after when another outswinger from the left found his head and he powered the ball into the bottom left hand corner from 12 yards out.

This second half second strike of the game, for Sean Dyche’s men, came somewhat against the run of play, as North End, driven by the lively Maguire, had started the latter period brightly.

The in-form former Cork City man brought the home fans off their feet on 66 minutes. After collecting the ball 45 yards out in a left hand channel, he had only one focus, making a driving run towards the box, before dropping his shoulder twice to sell two Burnley defenders the dummy, then firing hard and low into the bottom left hand corner of Nick Pope’s goal to halve the deficit.

Alan Browne was close to levelling matters shortly after, a lick one touch passing move finding the young international midfielder on the right hand edge of the ‘D’, but his shot was dragged just wide of the left hand post.

It was another Irishman who went closest to getting the game’s fourth goal in the closing stages, Daryl Horgan with a curling left foot effort beating half-time substitute Pope, but landing on the roof of the net from 20 yards, after some more incisive passing by Alex Neil’s midfield.

However, a fourth goal didn’t come, nonetheless it was another good work out for PNE as they prepare for their opening Sky Bet Championship fixture with Sheffield Wednesday in just ten days’ time.

PNE line-up: Maxwell (Hudson, 75), Grimshaw, Earl (O’Connor, 46), Welsh (c) (Pearson, 46), Boyle, Spurr, Horgan, Johnson (Browne, 46), Pringle (Barkhuizen, 69), Doyle (Robinson, 75), Harrop (Maguire, 46). Subs not used: Vermijl, Cunningham, Meulensteen.
