Preston North End’s opening fixture of the Championship will be at home against Middlesbrough on 8th August.

Middlesbrough finished 4th in the Championship last season and then lost 2-0 against Norwich in the Play-Off Final so they will prove a tough prospect for Simon Grayson’s men.

The last time these two sides met was in the League Cup last year – Preston’s Jordan Hugill scored against his former club but The Boro progressed with a 3-1 win.

MK Dons will entertain PNE in their first away fixture at stadium:mk and Preston will be hoping to emulate last season’s 2-0 win, where Joe Garner secured the victory.

North West affairs

The 2015/16 campaign will see the Lilywhites compete in plenty of local derbies; Burnley, Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers will all travel to Deepdale.

The first of those clashes will see Simon Grayson’s men entertain Neil Lennon’s Bolton on 31st October before travelling to the Macron stadium on 12th March.

Blackburn Rovers will then travel just over 10 miles to Deepdale to play North End on 21st November with the away fixture back at Ewood Park on 2nd April.

Burnley, who were relegated from the Premier League, host PNE on 5th December before travelling to face North End in the penultimate home game of the season.

Other notable fixtures

The final game of the season is sure to be a scintillating encounter as Leeds United, who Simon Grayson previously managed, travel to Deepdale on 7th May.

The final game will kick-off at 12.30pm and the small matter of an international break means there will be no Easter weekend fixtures this season.
