Sunderland vs Preston North End Prediction 17 March 2018

Tournament: Football League Championship
Location: Stadium of Light
Match date: 17.03.2018 at 15:00

On March 17 2018 at 15:00 in the upcoming match of the 38th game week of the English Football League Championship at the Stadium of Light the local Sunderland are playing against their guests Preston North End.

Sunderland may actually do an unusual thing this season: they can relegate from the Premier League to the League One within two seasons. At least at the moment the situation looks really like this. The Black Cats are on the last place in the Championship with 19 losses in their 37 matches played while they only won 5 times. The current form of the teams proves that their conditions are really poor. Sunderland haven’t won for nine games already while in 6 of those matches they lost. They also have a lot of players missing from the squad, while their guests have no problems with the squad at all. We really don’t see what they can show to save themselves from the relegation.  

The Black Cats haven’t won at home for four matches in a row already while they lost three of these games. In general, they have already played 18 matches in the national championship where they lost 10 times and won twice. That’s the second worst result of the Championship after Burton Albion, in fact.

As for the first historical champions of the English Premier League Preston North End they have their intention to make it to the national elite division after the end of the current season. At the moment they are just one the 9th position in the table of the national elite division and yet they are just four points below Middlesbrough, who are on the 6th place in the promotion play-offs zone.

In the latest nine matches played in the national championship Preston North End won 4 times, lost twice and drew three times. In case they concentrate a little bit more at the end of the season, they will easily get to the promotion play-offs. We must also admit that Preston are really good in their away matches. In the latest four away games they won twice and drew twice. As for all of their away matches, Preston have played 18 ones in the current season where they won 7 times, drew 8 times and lost 3 times with 24:18 goals difference.

All of the facts we have already mentioned make us think that the visitors will manage to avoid a loss in the upcoming match.
