Preston is just above the relegation zone at the moment and they will travel to Bristol this Saturday.
The hosts have been below par this season. With 6 wins and defeats each, they lie on 12th spot in the table. They have scored a decent 20 goals but have been ragged at the back conceding 18.
The hosts are inconsistent and a series of losses pushed them from 3rd to 12th. They have lost the last 2 matches in the competition and have been defeated in 3 of the last 5 games. At home, they have won and lost 2 matches from the last 5 and both the losses was just by a margin of one goal. In 4 of those matches, the score was below 2.5 goals.
The Robins have only 5 clean sheets in 18 matches they played this year. This is a problem considering they don’t score more than 1 goal in last 5 home matches.
The visitors are undefeated in their previous 6 matches and have scored in every one of them. But they are in 21st position by goal difference. They are equal on points with Reading and Hull City who are in the relegation zone.
Preston has not won any away games in the Championship. From their 8 away matches, 5 were defeats. They don’t have an away clean sheet this season.
