Match Preview: Accrington Stanley (A)

15 July 2022

After returning from Spain on Thursday evening, Preston North End will make the short journey to face Accrington Stanley on Saturday afternoon.

PNE enjoyed a productive week in Alicante, training in the warm weather conditions, as well as taking on La Liga side Getafe at Campoamor.

The Wham Stadium is the setting on Saturday, though, as North End take on John Coleman’s side for a 3pm kick-off.

Tickets will be on sale for PNE supporters from Deepdale until 1pm on Friday, while any remaining tickets will then be sold on the day from the Wham Stadium.

Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for concessions, while you can also book your place in Accrington Stanley's 1968 Lounge. Full ticket details can be found here.

League One side Accrington Stanley have set themselves up a tricky pre-season schedule to prepare for the new campaign, facing sides in the Championship and higher.

Greg Reflects On ‘Priceless’ Spain Camp

14 July 2022

They kicked off their preparations with a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace, while last weekend they played two games of 60 minutes against Blackburn Rovers, winning the first 1-0 before losing 2-0 in the second. They also came out on top against Stoke City on Wednesday evening.

For North End, this will be the fourth game of their pre-season schedule and the last one away from home, with a double header at Deepdale coming up next week against Hearts and Leicester City.

Everyone appears to have returned to Euxton unscathed following the training camp in Spain, with the only first team absentee being striker Sean Maguire.

If you are unable to make it on Saturday, you can follow the action from home with live updates across our social media platforms and there will be reaction to follow on PNE.Com.

Match Report: Accrington Stanley 0 PNE 1

16 July 2022

Emil Riis’ first goal of pre-season was enough to earn Preston North End a 1-0 victory away to Accrington Stanley.

Daniel Johnson had seen a penalty saved with the score at 0-0, but he turned provider for Denmark international Riis on 38 minutes.

PNE probably couldn’t believe they didn’t take the lead in the opening 20 minutes, and it was eventual goalscorer Riis to have the first chance of the game, firing wide from six yards on the end of Robbie Brady’s cross.

North End then had a penalty on 17 minutes, with Ched Evans doing very well to beat his man before being brought down by the goalkeeper, but Johnson’s spot kick was kept out by Lukas Jensen.

Evans then had a chance himself a few moments later, on the end of a brilliant team move with Brady at the heart of it, however Jensen was again equal to it.

PNE did have their goal on 38 minutes, though, as a well-contested Browne header sent Johnson away and he selflessly laid the ball across to Riis, who slotted home first time with his right foot.

Brad Potts saw a long-range effort saved just before half-time, while substitute goalkeeper Toby Savin then denied Browne from distance inside two minutes of the second period.

At the other end, Freddie Woodman’s first meaningful save of the game came on 65 minutes, as he flew to his left to tip Tommy Leigh’s powerful effort round the post.

In a second half full of changes, there were few chances of note, with Liam Lindsay having the last opportunity of the game, heading over with just a few minutes left on the clock.

Accrington Stanley line-up: Jensen (Savin, 45); Sangare (Rodgers, 66), Rich-Baghuelou, Astley, Clark (Nolan, 74); Coyle, Hamilton (Pell, 67); Lowe (Longelo, 56), Pritchard (Leigh, 56), McConville (Whalley, 56); Bishop (Adedoyin, 56). Subs not used: Conneely, Martin, Procter, Perritt.

PNE line-up: Woodman (Cornell, 66); Diaby (Storey, 66), Bauer (Lindsay, 56), Cunningham (Hughes, 56); Potts (Olosunde, 74), Ledson (Whiteman, 56), Browne (McCann, 56), Johnson (Woodburn, 66), Brady (Coulton, 66); Evans (Amaral, 82), Riis (O’Neill, 82).

Attendance: 1,897 (1,014 PNE fans)
