Accrington Stanley Match Preview

23 July 2021

PNE have their fifth friendly of pre-season on its way this weekend with a trip to the Wham Stadium to face Accrington Stanley.

Frankie McAvoy’s side enter the tie after Tuesday night’s defeat to Bolton Wanderers and will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday.

North End will again play in front of their own supporters after fans returned to the County Ground for the Bolton game, with the Lilywhites being allocated just under 1,100 tickets for this fixture.

Fans yet to purchase their tickets can do so through the Deepdale ticket office, online at mypne.com or over the phone on 0344 856 1966.

For Accrington, this will be the first time they have welcomed their supporters back into the Wham Stadium since March 2020.

Stanley enter the game on the back of a victory against Lancashire rivals Blackpool, with goals from Dion Charles, Harry Pell and Joel Mumbongo sealing a 3-1 win.

A former Accy shot-stopper in Connor Ripley could be the man trying to keep out the home side on Saturday, while forward Sean Maguire also spent time with Stanley earlier in his career, back in the 2014/15 campaign.

Ripley was one of three North End players on Tuesday evening to get their first taste of action in pre-season, alongside Jack Baxter and Ethan Walker, and they’ll be hoping to get more minutes into their legs this weekend.

There will be no live stream available for this game, but a full match replay and highlights will be available on iFollow PNE in the days following the match.
