Gaffer ready for friendly action

9 July 2014

Nigel Clough is looking forward to seeing the Blades in pre-season friendly action later this month.

Clough will return to Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium with the Blades on Saturday 19th July, before visiting fellow League Two outfit Northampton Town three days later.

But it is home action against Huddersfield Town and Turkish League champions Fenerbahçe that is whetting the Gaffer's appetite.

Look at the forthcoming schedule, which culminates at York City a week before the start of the new league season, Clough is happy with the opposition lined up.

He remarked: "We have two very attractive home friendlies to look forward too, but the Fenerbahçe one on the Thursday is something to look forward to.

"Fenerbahçe are a giant in Turkey, league champions, with experience of the Champions League, so that game in particular will be a fantastic occasion for the supporters.

"Our pre-season schedule is well balanced, we have some varied opposition, which will present us with some different challenges and that can only be of benefit to our preparations for the opener against Bristol City."
