Bristol City’s terrible form continued over the mid-week as they lost at home by a narrow 1-0 margin to Brentford. They are a side that made an excellent start to the season and used to lurk around the play-off zone. They had now lost 7 of their last 10 league games and as a result dropped down to 15th in the Championship table. They had an excellent record at home as well with 5 wins from their first 7. Now they had lost 2 in the space of 3 at home.
Preston North End are slowly becoming the draw specialists in the EFL Championship. They held Nottingham to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday to register their third draw in 5 matches. However, they do have a strong form coming into this game. They were beaten only twice in 11 matches since September. Both have come against stronger sides in the league – Newcastle United and Sheffield Wednesday. However, they must start converting draws to wins. They are currently 11th in the league table with 29 points to their name.
