Preston North End Preview: Will the league’s best home team secure another three points on their own patch?

Alex Neil’s Preston North End have been the real deal at home this season, with 32 of their 46 points coming at Deepdale. Preston have won ten, drawn two and lost three of 15 home league matches.

After three consecutive league and cup losses at Deepdale, North End sealed a vital 2-1 win over Charlton Athletic in their previous Championship encounter on home turf. After going a goal down, Josh Harrop and Patrick Bauer were on target for the Lilywhites to turn the game on its head.

Our betting prediction:
Over 2.5 goals
10/11

(odds taken 1655 GMT, Friday 31 January)

 
Preston followed up that win with an impressive 3-0 victory at Barnsley last time out. Neil’s boys were very efficient in front of goal, with first-half strikes from Tom Barkhuizen (2) and Daniel Johnson doing the business at Oakwell. North End are now right back on track in their push for promotion to the Premier League.

Swansea City Preview – Can the Swans claim a rare away win?

Steve Cooper made a huge impact when he first arrived at Swansea City, as the Welsh club were top of the league during the first international break. Although the Swans have failed to keep up those high standards, they are still nicely positioned in the Championship table.

Ahead of this weekend’s trip to Deepdale, Swansea are just two points adrift of the play-off spots and a place and a point behind Preston. Overall, Cooper’s men have won 12, drawn nine and lost eight. Last Saturday, though, Swansea were beaten 2-0 by lowly Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.
