Gaffer Looking To ‘Freshen Things Up’ For Carabao Cup

10 Hours ago

Ryan Lowe confirmed in his pre-match interview that players who haven’t played many minutes so far this season could get their chance in this cup tie.

He also said that youngsters Dana Amaral, Jacob Slater, Lewis Leigh and Mikey O’Neill would all be involved in the matchday squad.

Bambo Diaby will miss out through injury, as will Sean Maguire, while Ched Evans serves the second match of his three-game suspension.

A Look At Our Hosts


Following their Play-Off final defeat last season, there’s been lots of change at Huddersfield Town, with the departure of their head coach and some key players.

Carlos Corberán stepped away from the job at the beginning of July, while Harry Toffolo and Lewis O’Brien moved on to join newly-promoted Premier League side Nottingham Forest.

Club legend Danny Schofield has stepped up to become head coach and he’s looking for his first competitive victory in charge, having been beaten by Burnley and Birmingham City in the opening two games of the campaign.

Match Officials


Ross Joyce has become well familiar with refereeing PNE’s first round cup fixtures over the years, having taken charge of North End’s Carabao Cup round one games for the past two seasons now.

Mansfield Town have been the opponents on both of those occasions, while the only other time he’s taken charge of a PNE game was the 6-0 victory over Barnet in the first round of the FA Cup.

He has refereed one game so far this season, Bristol Rovers’ 4-0 demolition of Burton Albion last weekend.
