Preston NE Preview – Can Preston move higher?

10th placed Preston registered a much-needed 1-0 win away from home at Birmingham City during the week and the hosts now return to Deepdale where they take on Reading with the hosts looking to lift themselves up closer to the play-off pack.

Recent defeats to Nottingham Forest and Bristol City though dented Preston’s play-off aspirations and the hosts now find themselves seven points adrift of 6th placed Bournemouth prior to this upcoming clash against Reading.

Results at home have also been disappointing from Preston’s perspective as their record of 4-1-7 10/13 indicates and inconsistency rules backing them out for a straight win here but eight of Preston’s 12 home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Over 2.5 goals

Reading Preview – Can Reading stay in touch?

5th placed Reading know that all three points at Deepdale could see The Royals move level on points with 2nd placed Swansea City who were in FA Cup action yesterday, and having won three of their last four matches overall in the Championship, Reading stand a decent chance here.

Recent victories against Luton Town, Huddersfield Town and Coventry City have kept the visitors in the frame for at least a play-off spot but perhaps an even greater reward awaits The Royals as they look to pick up back-to-back wins on the road.

An away record of 5-4-3 18/16 looks reasonable enough with six of Reading’s 12 away matches also resulting in under 2.5 goals.
