Preston North End Prediction

Preston North End extended their unbeaten run to five matches in the Championship on the weekend when they recorded a 2-1 win away at struggling Bolton Wanderers which handed Alex Neil’s side a third win in five matches following earlier victories over QPR and Stoke City – both of which were away from home.

This means that Preston have won their last three away matches on the trot which is a fantastic return for the hosts here as they return to Deepdale, but whilst their overall home record stands at a fairly solid looking 5-7-3 29/22, the hosts are without a win from their last four matches at home on the trot.

A 2-1 defeat to Hull City was followed by three draws on the trot as they shred the points with Aston Villa, Swansea City and Derby County in 1-1, 1-1 and 0-0 stalemates respectively, and against sides that don’t particularly have great away records either.

With just three clean sheets on home turf so far this season, the hosts could be under heavy scrutiny against Norwich City on Wednesday night.


Key-Facts – Preston North End v Norwich City

  • Preston are unbeaten in their last 5 matches overall in the Championship
  • Preston have gone 4 home matches without a win
  • Norwich City are unbeaten in their last 13 away matches


Norwich CityPrediction

Onto Norwich City then, and the visitors continued on their merry way on Sunday when they grabbed all three points in their local derby against rivals Ipswich Town, beating their East Anglian opponents 3-0 in a convincing win which has taken Norwich two points clear at the top of the Championship.

Norwich have put together a six-match unbeaten run since their surprise 4-3 defeat at home to Derby County with wins against Birmingham City, Leeds United and Ipswich Town which could be pivotal in the run-in as The Canaries start closing in on automatic promotion.

Even more impressive is their 13-match unbeaten sequence away from home which includes seven wins amidst an overall away record that stands at 7-7-1 26/14 and although they’ve kept just four clean sheets on their travels, they’re a hard team to stop right now and generally outscore their opponents.

The visitors possess some dangerous attacking personnel in the shape of midfielders Vrancic (7 goals) and Hernandez (6 goals) along with rejuvenated forwards Pukki (20 goals) and Rhodes (6 goals) and they will surely put Preston’s defence to the test here this evening.

Betting Tips Verdict

Preston have produced some solid results recently, but Norwich possess the greater quality in attack.
