Southampton will embark on their second pre-season outing this Saturday with a trip to Preston North End. 

The Saints are back in England following their week-long venture to Austria, which was capped by a 1-1 draw against SCR Altach last Sunday. 

Che Adams got off the mark in a Southampton shirt just 116 seconds into his debut, but the Austrian Bundesliga side were able to hold their Premier League opposition after levelling proceedings later in the first half. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl will be keen to see how his men react to an arguably stronger test this weekend when a trip to Deepdale awaits.

Alex Neil led Preston to a reasonable season in the Championship last term as they finished in 14th place, and he will hope to help his team cause a mini upset in the latest instalment of their pre-season preparations. 

Hasenhuttl named a strong Southampton side against Altach, and it would come as no surprise to see him follow suit on Saturday afternoon. 

Here is our predicted line-up for the friendly against Preston.
