Preston North End Preview – Can the Lilywhites finally pick up a point?

The pressure is already starting to mount on Preston North End boss Frankie McAvoy, who was only appointed permanent boss at Deepdale back in May. North End have made a miserable start, losing three out of three of far.

Preston’s season started with a shock 4-1 home loss to Hull City, who won EFL League One last term. They then lost 2-1 at Reading last Saturday. To compound their misery, Preston were beaten again in midweek, this time crashing to a 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium. Sepp van den Berg scored an own goal with 15 minutes to go to gift the Terriers the points.

Our betting prediction:
Draw & both teams to score

(odds taken 1104 GMT, Friday 20 August)

The Lilywhites did claim an EFL Cup win, but their form in the Championship has been lacklustre to say the least early doors. McAvoy and his team are in desperate need of three points here.

Peterborough United Preview – Will the Posh leave Lancashire with a positive result?

Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough United were seconds away from having the perfect week at home. They led Cardiff City 2-0 with seven minutes to go on Tuesday, but the Bluebirds bounced back with two late goals. Aden Flint’s second was pretty much the last kick of the game.

However, Peterborough picked up their first second-tier win since April 2013 last weekend, coming from behind to beat Derby County 2-1 – both goals came in injury time. Four points from three games is a decent return for last term’s League One runners-up.
