Kit: PNE will wear the navy away kit at this fixture


Graham Westley is expected to continue to give all his squad minutes on the pitch as they step up their preparations against their first league opponents of the 2012/13 pre-season.


The Globe Arena hosted the Lilywhites twice in 2011/12, with Thorsten Stuckmann saving a penalty in a trial game for the Club in a pre-season clash in July 2011, and then the Lilywhites triumphing on penalties in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy second round in October.


It has been a happy hunting ground for North End since the Shrimps moved to the new stadium, with the youth team and the reserves all having 100 per cent records, but this will be a tough test for the new look PNE line-up.


David Amoo is moving closer to his North End debut having missed the first two games with a slight knock; and the aforementioned Stuckmann could get his first run out too having watched four different trialists take the gloves for the opening two fixtures.


John Welsh picked up an ankle injury in a late challenge at Southport last Saturday and is unlikely to be available for the tip to north Lancashire. Chris Robertson has also missed the opening two clashes with a slight injury and is again a doubt.
