Match Preview: Stockport County (A)

28 July 2023

Preston North End will bring the pre-season schedule to a close on Saturday afternoon with a trip to face Stockport County.

With the start of the Championship campaign now just over a week away, PNE are rounding off their preparations by taking on the Sky Bet League Two outfit at Edgeley Park.

After choosing to play two almost completely different XIs in each half of the previous friendly against Fleetwood Town – a goalless draw – it seems probable Ryan Lowe could hand out a larger chunk of minutes to those most likely to be involved against Bristol City.

Andrew Hughes made his first appearance of pre-season in the draw at Highbury after returning from injury, and there were also minutes for the likes of Calvin Ramsay and Duane Holmes, who will also be looking to build their fitness up ahead of the new campaign.

In Stockport County, North End are taking on a side who narrowly missed out on promotion to League One last season – losing out in the Play-Off final on penalties against Carlisle United.

So far this pre-season, the Hatters have defeated non-league opponents Altrincham and Chester, before being beaten 4-0 by Huddersfield Town last weekend.

Dave Challinor’s side will also be hosting North End’s Lancashire rivals Blackburn Rovers on Friday night, and Stockport County will be in a celebratory mood this weekend as the club marks its 140th anniversary.
