Preston North End play their penultimate pre-season friendly before the 2019/20 season gets underway as they travel to Highbury to take on Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town on Friday night.
Manager Alex Neil is likely to give his squad 90 minutes again across the two weekend fixtures, with David Nugent possibly available to make his return in a Lilywhites shirt against the Cod Army.
Darnell Fisher and Brad Potts, who came through 30 and 60 minutes against Accrington respectively, should both continue to increase their loads ahead of the new Championship season as we take on our Fylde coast neighbours.
The North End boss goes into the final weekend of preparations with all his first team available for selection; Jayden Stockley, who missed Tuesday night’s game, back in contention and set to complete a full game over the weekend.
Friday night’s game will have a 7.45pm kick-off and the club are still selling tickets in advance. We have received 150 seated tickets in the Parkside Stand and 150 standing tickets in the Percy Ronson stand initially.
Prices are as follows: Seating - adults £12, over 65s £6, U16s £2; standing - adults £10, over 65 £5, U16s £1. All tickets are now on general sale and will be available online at www.mypne.com, over the phone during opening hours on 0344 856 1966 or in person from the Sir Tom Finney Stand ticket office at Deepdale until 2pm on Friday.
If any supporters want to purchase wheelchair and carers tickets, they need to call Fleetwood directly on 01253 775080 (option 1) and they will be able to assist. Fleetwood will not duplicate any standing tickets, so it is advisable for supporters to collect standing tickets.
Fleetwood will be selling on the day from 9am on Friday until half time and fans must purchase a ticket from one of their ticket offices, there will be no cash turnstiles. Any supporters collecting tickets can collect from the ticket collection booth which is located outside the Main Parkside Ticket Office.
