Preston News and Form

The Lilywhites earned three points away at Bolton over the weekend. That was their fifth consecutive game without defeat in the league (W3 D2). So their form makes this a tricky away game for league leaders Norwich on Wednesday. Preston are on a three-match sequence of drawn games at home at the moment. Their most recent one was against top-seven side Derby. Preston’s home record is W5 D7 L3 this season. They have come up with an average of 1.9 goals per game at Deepdale this term.

Each of Preston’s last three home games have ended up under 2.5 goals. But that has bucked something of a trend because 53% of league games at Deepdale this season have gone over 3.5 goals. Both teams have scored in 80% of Preston’s home games this season. Preston haven’t managed a win in any of their last four home fixtures (D3 L1), but they have only lost one of their last ten home fixtures. They have opened the scoring in nine of their fifteen home games.

Norwich News and Form

Norwich came out on top in a really feisty East Anglian derby against Ipswich over the weekend. That saw the Canaries extend their lead at the top to two points over Leeds. That is back to back wins which Norwich have in the league now, the Canaries having scored exactly three goals in those two wins. The derby win over Ipswich moved Norwich on to a six-match undefeated streak of Championship form. Overall this season they are W7 D7 L1 away from home in the league.

They won their last away game, a huge top-two clash against Leeds. The Canaries have averaged 1.7 goals per game on their travels this season. They are currently ticking over on a thirteen match undefeated streak of away form. They have netted in each of their last five, but don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last three away from Carrow Road. Norwich have been level in nine of their road games at the half time break. It is well worth a mention that 70% of all Norwich’s league goals this season have come in the second half of fixtures.
