Preston North End Preview – Will the Lilywhites extend unbeaten run this weekend?

Ryan Lowe has turned Preston North End into promotion hopefuls since taking over from Frankie McAvoy at Deepdale. After Lowe’s appointment, Preston have won five, drawn five and lost one of 11 Championship games.

Since losing to Swansea City in South Wales last month, North End are unbeaten in six, winning three and drawing three. Last time out, the Lancashire side picked up a 1-0 win at Peterborough United. The Lilywhites have moved into 11th, just four points away from sixth-place Middlesbrough.

Our betting prediction:
Preston to be winning at half time & full time

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1212 GMT, Friday 18 February)

Preston would bolster their top-six hopes with another victory on Saturday. They are the big 8/11 favourites to see off the struggling Royals at Deepdale.

Reading Preview – Can the Royals seal first league win since November?

Reading made a solid start to their season, but things have gone horribly wrong for the Royals in recent months. Ever since the points deduction, Reading have slipped closer and closer towards the drop zone. They are just two points ahead of 22nd right now.

Reading are winless in 11 Championship games since beating Swansea in November. The Royals have drawn three and lost eight. Before holding fellow strugglers Peterborough United to a goalless draw at the Weston Homes Stadium in midweek, Veljko Paunovic’s troops had lost seven in a row.

Preston North End vs Reading Betting Advice

Things were far different at both clubs when they met at the Select Car Leasing Stadium back in August. Reading won the points on home solid thanks to goals from Femi Azeez and John Swift.

In the last meeting at Deepdale, Preston and Reading played out a goalless draw. The reverse matchup last season ended in a 3-0 victory for North End at the Madejski.


Key Facts – Preston North End vs Reading Betting Tip

  • Preston have lost just one league game since Lowe came in
  • Reading have lost eight and drawn three of their past 11 in the league
  • The Royals have picked up just one Championship victory since early November


Reading are on a miserable run of results at present, and we can see in-form Preston piling more misery on the sorry Royals this weekend. North End have kept clean sheets in their last three wins, and Preston are priced at 7/4 to win this one to nil. We also fancy the home side to dominate from start to finish, so take a punt on Preston to win both halves at 4/1.
