This is excellent news as with a new manager four preseason fixtures was just not going to be enough. This game will slot in between tomorrow’s match against West Ham and the one at Hibernian on July 30th.
We hope to maybe see some new signings at the match against Preston with Joelinton due to be announced soon if there are no unforeseen hiccups.
