Head coach Scott Brown told the club website: “We’ve got another game on Tuesday, when a lot of the lads will get 90 minutes again.

"The standards that they showed and hit (at Stoke) will be expected weekly from now on, so we need to make sure we continue that and keep them fresh.”

Dundee United will be the opponents Town's final pre-season game – and the only one at Highbury – on Saturday before their League One season gets under way at Port Vale a week later.
