Accrington Stanley will host Preston in the first round of the Carabao Cup Tuesday 8th August.

Kick off at the Wham Stadium will be 7:45pm.

It will be the first competitive meeting between the sides since 1961 when the Reds played North End in the FA Cup.

Last season John Coleman’s team made the third round of the EFL Cup competition for the first time, beating neighbours Burnley in the process, before ultimately narrowly losing at West Ham United.

Admission prices will be £15 for adults, £10 for all concessions and £5 for all accompanied under 12’s.

Confirmation of when tickets go on sale will be made shortly on the club’s official website.
