Tranmere Rovers Preview

24 August 2020

Preston North End’s pre-season preparation continue with a trip to face Michael Jackson’s Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park on Tuesday afternoon.

The Lilywhites began their run of preparatory games with a 3-1 win over Salford City at the Peninsula Stadium on Saturday afternoon; Scott Sinclair, Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop the scorers for the Lilywhites.

The manager used two XIs, changing the first one after 60 minutes and he is expected to reverse this for Tuesday afternoon’s clash on the Wirrall, with those who came on against Graham Alexander’s men likely to start the game.

North End’s last game against the Super Whites was in February 2014, when a Joe Garner brace gave them a 2-1 win; their first success in ten games away at Rovers.

Like the weekend, the club will be broadcasting the game on YouTube, with Simon Crabtree and former North End midfielder Paul McKenna presenting the broadcast from 2.50pm, followed by full coverage and commentary.

The full game and highlights will also be uploaded to iFollow PNE, along with all the reaction after the game, for those who cannot watch live on Tuesday afternoon.

North End will be wearing their newly launched 2020/21 away strip for the first time too, after it was revealed on Monday afternoon.

For the second game in succession, Scott Bolton will referee the fixture, with both teams preparing for games against Mansfield Town in the coming weeks; PNE in Saturday’s Carabao Cup first round tie and Tranmere on the opening day of the League Two season.
