Preston North End vs Bristol City Prediction 6 March 2018

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Deepdale Stadium
Match date: 06.03.2018 at 19:45

On March 6 2018 at 19:45 at the Deepdale Stadium in Preston in the forthcoming regular match of the 36th game week of the English Football League Championship the local Preston North End will play against Bristol City.

The upcoming match will be a one played between the teams from the 6th and the 9th positions in the standings. It’s going to be very important for both of them as one of the teams is eager to get to the promotion play-offs and another team wants to keep its place in it.

The previous season wasn’t very successful neither for Preston nor for Bristol City. Both teams finished it in the middle of the standings and yet they most managed to improve their conditions which let them improve their positions in the standings too.

Preston are now on the 9th place with 54 points gained. In their 35 matches played they only conceded 34 goals and they conceded 16 of them in 17 home matches which is the average of less than one goal per match. Yet, considering the fact that Bristol score a lot, the chances of conceding rise, at it seems to us. Moreover, Preston are below the promotion zone and they are eager to get there. So, Preston are to try their best and attack a lot and score which will make them open the zones for the competitors and their counterattacks.

So, Preston impress the fans while Bristol actually do it as well. At the moment they are on the 6th place in the table with 57 points gained. Bristol City haven’t won in their away matches for a long times since December 8 as they won against Sheffield United 1:2. The team definitely wants to improve that statistics and it will be doing its best. Yet, despite the fact that they haven’t won in their away matches for a long time, they still score in those matches all the time. They have already scored 22 goals and conceded 22 goals in their 17 away matches.

In the first round game played between the teams in the current season Preston North End managed to win at the domestic stadium of Bristol 1:2. This time the hosts don’t have any players missing in the squad while the guests have three players injured.

It seems to us that the teams are close to each other in their class and skill. They have always been known to be strong middle-peasants of the Football League Championship and this time they are rather high. Both teams really need to win and that’s why they will both be very active. That’s why we think that both teams are going to score at least once in the upcoming match.
