NIGEL Clough will return to the Pirelli Stadium in July as Burton Albion host Sheffield United in a pre-season friendly on Saturday, July 19, kick-off 3pm.

Former manager Clough will bring his Blades team to Burton for a friendly, and current Brewers boss Gary Rowett says he is looking forward to it.

“Obviously everyone at the club gets on really well with Nigel and we’re grateful that he’s agreed to this game,” said the Pirelli chief.

“The run they went on last season meant they finished not far outside the top six in League One, and our game with them will be a good test for our players before the season starts.

Albion also confirmed a trip to Ilkeston Town on Tuesday, July 15, kick-off 7.30pm.

The Derbyshire outfit finished 17th in the Northern Premier League last season, and the match will be played at the Robins' New Manor Ground.

Ticket prices for both matches will be announced in due course.
