Preston News and Form – Cna Preston knockout Norwich?

Preston have won 9 of 14 home games in the Championship this season. They have had a terrible away season in contrast, so they will want to take their chances at Deepdale at the first bite in this tie. Preston however, have lost three of their last five at Deepdale in league action, so there have been recent signs that they have gone off the boil. But overall if you take the full season into context then it has been very good from the Lilywhites on home turf.

Preston 1-0 HT Score


Two of Preston’s last three home defeats in the FA Cup have happened against Premier League opposition (Manchester City and Arsenal). Last season they crashed out in the Third Round at home against Doncaster. But before that they had posted a fantastic W6 D2 L1 record in nine FA Cup home fixtures. Their last home win in the FA Cup happened against Saturday’s opponents Norwich back in the 2015 third round. That was a solid 2-0 home success that they took over the Canaries on that occasion.

Key-Facts – Preston vs Norwich

  • Preston beat Norwich in the 2015 FA Cup third round
  • Norwich have scored in just 3 of their last 9 away games
  • The Canaries are on a four match losing streak in the FA Cup


Norwich News and Form -Can the Canaries sing at Deepdale?

The Canaries are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table having only won three of their 21 fixtures played there. In all likelihood, they will be ending up back in the Championship next season. So it will be interesting to see how they handle themselves in this game against Championship opponents. Will they give up a run in the competition to try and preserve themselves for the relegation scrap that lies ahead? They have had a miserable time of things on their travels this season.

Norwich’s EFL Cup campaign came to an end at Crawley. In the Premier League, they have lost seven of their ten away games (W1 D2). They have, however, managed to score in three of their last four away games, which is some kind of positive for them. Overall, however, Norwich have failed to score in six of their last nine road fixtures. Norwich have also lost each of their last four FA Cup away games, the most recent of which was an exit at Chelsea in January 2018 on a penalty shootout. Norwich have failed to net in three of their last four away games in the competition.

Preston vs Norwich Predictions

Preston to win: No reason not to get behind Preston in this one, even though they are the lower-ranked of the two sides. They have proven to be such a tough side to beat at Deepdale, that the visiting Canaries won’t get anything like a comfortable afternoon. Home win.
