Preston North End have agreed to stay silent on today's reserve-team clash with Manchester City.

The Daily Express says Preston agreed to be gagged as Manchester City try to draw a veil of secrecy over the return of Carlos Tevez, who is set for his first action for five months when he turns out for City's second string today.

The match has been switched from Chorley to City's Carrington training ground, as the Premier League leaders try to keep Tevez under wraps.
