The Lilywhites return to action back in England following their tour to Ireland, with a friendly much closer to home against AFC Fylde at Mill Farm on Saturday afternoon.
The game, the third of the 2019/20 pre-season, sees Alex Neil’s men step up their preparations as they take on Dave Challinor’s 2019 FA Trophy winners in a 3pm kick-off.
The game is likely to see the return to action of forward Sean Maguire , who was given an extra week off during the summer due to his exertions with Ireland.
Josh Harrop, who was withdrawn early from Monday’s win at Cork City, has been able to train with no issues in the days since the game and is expected to continue his return from ten months out with his knee injury.
The hosts, after reaching the National League Play-Off Final and winning the Trophy at Wembley, have been active in the transfer market over the summer, in the hope of going one better this season and having beaten Wigan Athletic on Tuesday night, will be a good test for PNE on their return from the training camp.
This is North End’s second trip to Fylde; the aforementioned Maguire having grabbed a hat-trick in the previous friendly last summer and he will look to hit the ground running on his return to action.
