Broadfield Stadium: Host North End on April 23

Red Devils defender Dumbuya has been selected in Sierra Leone's squad to face Tunisia this month, meaning the March 19 clash has been moved to the final week of the season on Tuesday, April 23 and will kick off at 7:45pm.

A club usually requires three players to be called up for a fixture to be rescheduled but a Football League rule states that if a game is rearranged into an international window - as was the case with North End's proposed maiden visit to the Broadfield Stadium - one player being called up can allow the club with that player to ask for a rearrangement.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
