PNE’s opening day fixture with Middlesbrough has been moved to Sunday 9th August, 12 noon, live on Sky Sports.
The two sides couldn’t have suffered more contrasting fortunes under the Wembley arch within 24 hours as Simon Grayson’s charges swept aside Swindon Town before Norwich City claimed the third and final place in the Premier League by beating Middlesbrough.
The pair will now go head-to-head to kick off the new Championship season at what is sure to be a bustling Deepdale.
North End and Middlesbrough last faced each other in league action during the 2010/11 Championship season; a 1-1 draw fought out at the Riverside Stadium on that occasion.
They have since faced each other twice in the Capital One Cup, the most recent meeting being last season when local Boro boy Jordan Hugill netted for PNE in a valiant 3-1 defeat.
