PREVIEW: Toulon Vs Barnsley

9 July 2019

The Reds face Toulon on Tuesday evening whilst in France on a week-long training camp.

Like the Reds, our hosts in France on Tuesday are fresh off the back of an outstanding 2018/19 campaign which also culminated in promotion. 

Sporting Club Toulon will start their new season in the third tier of French football after being confirmed as Champions of their group in National 2. 

Founded in 1944 after a merge between Sporting Club du Temple and Jeunesse Sportive Toulonnaise, our opponents from the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur are coached by Fabien Pujo. 

Semi-Finalists twice in the Coupé de France, it should prove a stern test on foreign soil for Daniel Stendel's side. 

The Reds have been in France for the last few days, using the facilities of French Ligue 1 outfit OGC Nice as preparations for the new season ramp up. 

Recent recruits, Bambo Diaby and Mallik Wilks could both see their first involvement for the Reds but Stendel will try to use as many players as possible, as he did in Stalybridge last week where the team ran out 5-0 winners in their opening pre-season friendly.

We will have coverage across our social media channels on Tuesday night.
