United have had their second pre-season friendly fixture confirmed with a trip to the International Stadium in the north east to face National League North side Gateshead FC.
The Heed, who were pushing for a play-off place prior to the lockdown, have become regular opponents for the Blues over recent seasons, with a good relationship having developed between the clubs.
Please note – this game is behind-closed-doors. Spectators are not allowed due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.
Gateshead FC are currently exploring the possibility of a live stream for this fixture - watch for further updates from the Heed on that subject.
