Blackpool vs Preston Championship Prediction by LeagueLane

Blackpool vs Preston
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 22 October 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: Bloomfield Road

Preston arrive at Bloomfield Road on Saturday for the Championship game with hosts Blackpool.

After a slow start, things are finally heating up for Preston in this season. They were getting to the safer zone match-by-match lately. However, their plans were ruined by Bristol City and Stoke in the last two weeks.

They will head into this game hoping to regain the lost momentum. Preston sealed a clean sheet win over Huddersfield in the previous fixture and showed the signs of regaining their lost momentum.

Going on, they reached the 8th position by scoring enough of goals. They have not scored more than one goal in any of their matches in this season barring a single fixture. Despite of their recent defensive slump, there have been a set of clean sheet games to their name this season.

Meanwhile, Blackpool were one of the teams that had to settle outside the top-half at the end of the past and lately they have been going through a rather inconsistent stretch performances.

Blackpool will head into their next fixture winless in over for five in the past six Championship games. Due to which the side have fallen out of the top half of the table.

Blackpool vs Preston Prediction

Preston proved in the game against Norwich that they have the potential to score in a game if the situation demands a lot of goals. But it is doubtful whether there will be an atmosphere that demands so many goals in this game.

This is another fixture where Preston can get a clean sheet win like they did in the last game. Their head to head form also shows a low-scoring trend.

Therefore, we like to back Preston to Win & Under 2.5 Goals at 5.50 Odds odds while you can also go with the Clean Sheet win for Preston at 3.25 odds.
