PNE live on television

Have your say

Preston North End’s opening game of the new Championship season against Middlesbrough at Deepdale is to be screened live on television.

Sky Sports have comfirmed the match will kick-off at noon on Sunday, August 9.

The match should whet the appetite of all North End supporters as they hope to see their team get off to a winning start in the Championship.

Middlesbrough will be no pushovers though. The Teesiders finished in fourth spot last season – just four points outside the automatic promotion places.

They were beaten by Norwich City at Wembley in the play-off final – the day after PNE sealed promotion from League One.
