Oldham (Eng) – Manchester City (Eng)
Premier League champions at Boundary Park
“I would expect some of their top players will feature so it will be a fantastic test for us, both fitness wise and tactically how we deal with them.”
This is the penultimate friendly before the competitive action kicks off against Sheffield Wednesday in the Capital One Cup on Monday, August 13th.
AFC Wimbledon (Eng) – Preston (Eng)
Terry Brown (Wimbledon)says that pre-season will step-up a gear for his first-teamers against Preston North End tomorrow night.
The Dons boss has experimented with youngsters during our friendlies so far, but he says that getting 90 minutes into those who will start the season at Stevenage in two weeks’ time is now crucial.
“I need to get to a situation where I am giving 90 minutes to the 11-14 players who will be regulars,” Terry said. “Preston will offer me a chance to do that. We have mixed younsters in with the seniors and at any given time during our friendlies we have had at least six or seven young players in the squads. They are players with no experience of men’s football whatsoever. Some of the yougsters have acquitted themselves well, but Preston offers us a chance to concentrate on the first-team.”
The Lilywhites (Preston) will head to the country’s capital in buoyant mood following their 1-0 win over Greek side AEK Athens last Saturday courtesy of winger Jeffery Monakana’s late strike.
It was arguably North End’s strongest pre-season performance, and the Dons will provide a different type of test for Graham Westley’s side.
Tough tackling midfielder Jack King looks likely to miss Preston’s trip down south due to an ankle injury sustained in the first half against AEK.
John Welsh and winger David Amoo will be hoping for a return to action, but striker Lee Trundle will definitely be out with a knee injury.
