"The lads adapted extremely well; it was a professional performance and one that we're happy with.
"We're making sure everybody gets the right minutes under our belt; you can't predict what's going to happen between now and August 6th but we've got to make sure we're ready for the start of the season.
"You can train as much as you want but it's about match practice and we've been doing that. Everybody's looking sharp and ready to be chosen for the 6th August although we've still got a game against Bolton on Saturday."
North End's 4-1 win over the hosts' tonight saw three different scorers on the scoresheet and Snods added that the goals tonight would do their confidence the world of good with the domestic schedule just around the corner.
