Stockport County vs Preston North End Preview

14 July 2017

Preston North End's second game of their 2017/18 pre-season preparations sees them travel to Edgeley Park to face Stockport County

Jim Gannon's men provide the opposition as Alex Neil will take to the touchline for the first time as Preston North End manager, having taken a watching brief in the opening pre-season game at Bamber Bridge last Friday night, where the Lilywhites ran out 7-0 winners.

The team go into the game on the back of a full week of training over in Ireland and begin a run of four games in eight days, as they step up their fitness regime with the aim of being ready for the first game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday, at Deepdale in three weeks' time.

The new gaffer will only have Tom Clarke, Declan Rudd and Josh Harrop likely to be unavailable, the latter two only short term, whilst Calum Woods could be set for his first run out for 12 months following his cruciate injury suffered at Oldham last pre-season.

Admission to this game is pay on the day, with prices as follows: Adults £10, concessions £7, six to 17-year-olds £4 and U6s free when accompanied by a paying adult.

Please be aware that there is no parking at the ground, there is limited parking in the surrounding roads and paid car parking at either end of, and behind, Castle Street in Edgeley.
