Preston North End Preview – Two home wins in a week for the Lilywhites?

Preston North End missed out on the play-offs last season, but Alex Neil’s men were hard to beat at home. This season, however, the Lilywhites lost each of their opening five Championship matches at Deepdale.

Preston finally won on their own patch last weekend, beating Tony Pulis’ Sheffield Wednesday by a goal to nil. North End were certainly helped by Josh Windass’ early red card, but Tom Barkhuizen’s goal three minutes after the break did the business for Preston.

Our betting prediction:
Preston to be winning at half time
11/5

(odds taken 1622 GMT, Monday 23 November)

 
On the whole, North End have made a solid enough start to their Championship campaign. After 12 games played, Neil’s troops have won five, lost six and drawn one to sit 12th on 16 points. Can Preston make it two home victories in a week on Tuesday night?

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Can Rovers avoid defeat at Deepdale?

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn Rovers find themselves in 14th spot in the current Championship table. So far, the Blue and Whites have amassed 15 points from 12 matches, winning four, losing five and drawing three.

Since losing four of five, Blackburn have responded by winning one and drawing two of the following three. Last Saturday, Rovers battled to a 1-1 draw with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.

Preston North End vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Advice

When the duo squared off at Deepdale last season, Preston edged an entertaining encounter. Blackburn raced into a 2-0 lead after just 11 minutes, but goals from Barkhuizen (2) and Daniel Johnson turned the game on its head to give North End a 3-2 win. The reverse game at Ewood Park ended in a less eventful 1-1 draw.
