Accrington Stanley vs Preston North End Preview

19 July 2017

The Lilywhites face their second Lancashire League Two outfit in 24 hours on Wednesday night when Alex Neil takes his side to play Accrington Stanley in their fourth pre-season encounter.

North End make the short journey down the M65 to the Wham Stadium to face John Coleman’s men just three weeks before a return visit in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Having kept up their 100 per cent record so far this campaign with a 2-0 win over Morecambe on Tuesday night, the new PNE gaffer will be hoping for another similar performance in east Lancashire as that he got in the north of the county.

The side that played the last half hour at the Globe Arena is likely to be the side that begins the game against the Reds, with another 60-30 split expected. Daniel Johnson, who completed 90 minutes on Tuesday, may get a rest.

Paul Gallagher missed Tuesday’s trip with a tight hamstring, but the manager revealed that Josh Harrop was now back in training and that John Welsh and Calum Woods would be involved very soon, just leaving long term absentee, skipper Tom Clarke, out on the sidelines whilst he recovers from his ruptured Achilles.

Tickets are on sale at Deepdale until 3pm and can also be bought on the night priced as adults £10, seniors (65 and over), mature students and U18s £5 and U12s £1.

Car parking is also available at £5 per space, these must be booked in advance directly through Accrington Stanley.

Ambulant disabled supporter tickets are priced at the relevant age band with the carer ticket available free of charge. Wheelchair users and their carers must purchase in advance from the Accrington Stanley ticket office by calling 01254 356950.
