YOUTH: Preston at home this weekend

7 March 2024

The under-18s face Preston North End on Saturday in their next fixture of the Youth Alliance League.

A brace from Romeo Park and a goal from Robbie Swinburn gave United a 3-2 victory over Rochdale to remain undefeated at home in 2024.

The result saw United jump up a place to 11th in the league on 17 points after 19 games played.

After recording their fifth victory of the campaign, United will be looking to record back-to-back victories for the first time since August.

A look at the opposition.

Preston North End are top of the league on 47 points after playing 20 games, with 15 wins, two draws and three losses this season.

In their last five league games, the league leaders have recorded victories against Shrewsbury, Accrington Stanley and Walsall whilst drawing against Salford and Oldham.

In the reverse fixture in October, the Lilywhites ran out 4-0 winners at Springfields.

The game kicks off at 11am on Saturday at Creighton Rugby Club.
