Sheffield United will shortly announce further additions to their pre-season schedule.
Nigel Clough’s side visit Burton Albion (July 19) and Northampton Town (July 22) before hosting Huddersfield Town (July 29) ahead of the new League One campaign but talks with at least two more clubs are thought to be underway.
“There are obvious connections between Burton, Northampton and ourselves,” Clough, who started his managerial career at Albion, said. “Chris (Wilder, the Northampton manager) is a former United player and so that made perfect sense.
“We were happy to go to Huddersfield but they asked if they could play here which was also great for us.”
United have been allocated 480 advanced purchase tickets for the visit to Albion priced from £10 (adults) and £5 (juniors). Season pass holders can gain entry to Sixfields for £10 (adults) and £7 (senior citizens) with further discounts available for under-18’s.
They can be reserved, via the usual channels, from July 2.
