Hibs will take on English Football League duo Accrington Stanley and Stoke City as part of their pre-season preparations this week.

Jack Ross’ side are training south of the border at a private pre-season camp over the next few days. Hibs begin their UEFA Europa Conference League campaign this month and started their senior pre-season schedule against Dunfermline on Saturday, winning 4-1. Now Accrington and Stoke City await, before Arsenal come to Easter Road.

Ross said (HTV): “We’ve got a fairly congested pre-season because obviously we were involved in the cup final and then we have to be ready for the European game which comes around quickly. But the shorter break we had meant the players haven’t de-conditioned too much. We worked them really hard this week, They’re in really good shape.

“So next week in becomes more refined towards matches and the calibre of opponent will be more challenging. We play Accrington Stanley on Tuesday and then Stoke on Friday so those are two really good games when we are away as well.”
