Preston North End Preview – Will the Lilywhites finally win at home?

Alex Neil’s Preston North End have had a very strange season so far. No team in the Championship have picked up more points away from home, with the Lilywhites amassing an impressive 13 from a possible 15.

However, they are the worst home team in the division having lost all five of their Championship matches so far. Since starting the 2020-21 season with a 4-0 home win over Mansfield Town in the first round of the Carabao Cup, Neil’s boys have lost six league and cup fixtures in a row at Deepdale.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0957 GMT, Friday 20 November)

Preston will be desperate to put things right at home, starting with three points over Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend. The home win is currently priced at 13/10.

Sheffield Wednesday Preview – Can Pulis start with a positive result?

Even though Sheffield Wednesday moved off the foot of the table and that their points deduction was cut in half recently, the club decided to sack Garry Monk. The Wednesday board acted quickly to bring in the experienced Tony Pulis, who will take charge of the Owls for the first time this Saturday.

Sheffield Wednesday have won three, drawn three and lost five of their 11 league matches thus far. The side from the Steel City find themselves down in 23rd place with six points to their name. However, they are now just two points away from safety.
