Preston North End Preview – Can the Lilywhites make it back-to-back wins?

Preston North End have made an indifferent start to their 2020-21 season. The Lilywhites have played seven league and cup matches, winning three, losing three and drawing one.

Preston began their Championship campaign with a 1-0 home loss to Swansea City. They then battled to a 2-2 draw with Norwich City at Carrow Road before losing 1-0 at home again, this time to Michael O’Neill’s Stoke City.

Our betting prediction:
Cardiff win & under 3.5 goals

Having taken just one point from nine, Preston headed to the Brentford Community Stadium before the international break as the big underdogs. Brentford were 2-0 up at half time, but Alex Neil’s men blew the Bees away in the second period. A Scott Sinclair brace and efforts from Brad Potts and Sean Maguire gave North End a stunning 4-2 victory in London.

Preston will be de desperate to follow that up with a home win on Sunday. At the time of writing, they are available at 5/4 to take maximum points from this fixture.

Cardiff City Preview – Bluebirds to fly back to South Wales with all three points?

Neil Harris’ Cardiff City have also taken four points from a possible 12 up until now. The Bluebirds have lost both of their matches at the Cardiff City Stadium, with all points coming away from home so far.

Having lost at home to Sheffield Wednesday on the opening weekend, Cardiff hit back with a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on matchday two, with new signing Kieffer Moore bagging a brace. They were brought back down to earth by Reading in their next one, though, crashing to a 2-1 home loss.

Cardiff took on in-form Blackburn Rovers – who had scored nine in their previous two – last time out. The Welsh team battled to a 0-0 draw at Ewood Park, which was a fine result, especially as playmaker Lee Tomlin was sent off with 20 minutes still to play.

The Bluebirds will need to show plenty of fighting spirit once again if they are to leave Deepdale at the weekend with anything to show for their efforts.
