The match will actually be played before the start of the new Football League season, which kicks-off on Saturday, August 18.

Other notable fixtures include Sheffield United hosting Burton Albion, Leeds United hosting Shrewsbury Town and Barnsley making the trip to Rochdale.

Premier League clubs will enter at the second round stage, with those involved in European competition entering in round three.

First league games the 18th, so this is basicly our last friendly. Should be a good preview of what DJ's up to!
