Preston North End will kick-off their return to the Championship with a home game against Middlesbrough.

The visit of Boro – beaten by Norwich City in last month’s play-off final – to Deepdale is on Saturday, August 8.

North End head to MK Dons a week later (August 15), then they visit Rotherham United on Tuesday, August 18.

On August 22, Simon Grayson’s men host Ipswich Town, before rounding off the month with a trip to Hull City, who were relegated from the Premier League in May.

The first of the local derbies comes on October 31 when North End are at home to Bolton Wanderers.

Three weeks later on November 21, Deepdale is the venue for the eagerly anticipated clash with Blackburn Rovers.

PNE then head to Turf Moor to take on Burnley on December 5.

Lilywhites boss Grayson comes up against former side Leeds United at Elland Road on December 19.

The Christmas fixtures see North End away at Huddersfield – another of Grayson’s former clubs – on Boxing Day, before back-to-back home games with Hull (December 28) and Rotherham (January 2).

No games are scheduled for Easter as it falls during a fortnight’s international break.

North End visit Ewood Park for the return game with Blackburn on April 2, visit Bolton on March 12 and then host Burnley on April 23.

Their final match of the season on May 7 is at home to Leeds.

London trips are always popular for North End fans, all of them coming before the end of November.

The first of those is on Saturday, September 19, when they go to Brentford.

Charlton away falls on a Tuesday night (October 20), while they head to Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, November 7 and Fulham on November 28.
