AFC Fylde v Preston North End Match Preview

13 July 2018

The Lilywhites make the short journey down the M55 to visit Mill Farm for the very first time to take on Dave Challinor’s AFC Fylde on Saturday afternoon, with a 3pm kick-off.

Alex Neil’s side face their second pre-season test against a side that last year reached the National League Play-Offs and who will be looking to impress against a near neighbour.

The manager could give Ryan Ledson his first run out in a North End shirt, after the summer signing missed the 7-0 win over Bamber Bridge due to a slight knock, but the Liverpudlian has been back in full training this week.

The team, who will wear their new all yellow away strip for the first time, will otherwise most likely see all the squad again split across two halves as they face their last run out before they head over to Ireland for a training camp.

Once again iFollow PNE will have full coverage of the game. Guy Clarke will bring you live match coverage from 2.45pm alongside Graeme Atkinson, where you can watch the game if you are a subscriber; a monthly subscription which gives you access to all the pre-season games is available to UK subscribers for just £4.49.
