This morning the players arrived at Humberside Airport before boarding a Czech Airlines plane for the game which will be played in the city of Zilina.

Manager Steve Bruce says it will not be easy because the Tigers are still preparing for the new season - but wants his players to embrace the challenge:

Chesterfield turn down Leeds bid for Cooper

Chesterfield have confirmed they have turned down a bid from Leeds United for defender Liam Cooper.


Official confirmation that the Spireites have turned down a bid for Liam Cooper

Chesterfield Chief Executive Chris Turner has confirmed that an undisclosed six-figure offer for Cooper failed to meet the club's asking price.

The former Hull player was a key player at the heart of the Spireites' title-winning defence last season.

We have turned down an initial bid which was below our valuation of Liam and we now await a response from Leeds. I'm not surprised that there has been interest in Liam because he is a quality player. Paul Cook has assembled a squad of players who are capable of playing in League 1 and above and it would be a surprise if none of them attracted interest from other clubs.

– Chris Turner, Chesterfield chief executive
