It was an inspired performance from Preston North End at the Deepdale stadium when they faced Sheffield Wednesday on the New Year’s day. But the lady luck once again betrayed them as Wednesday strike late to snatch a 1-1 draw. The Lilywhites were coming on the back of a 4-1 humbling against Leeds in the previous round.

And head-coach Simon Grayson will calling out for consistency from his players when his side take on Burton on Monday afternoon. Preston are 13th in the standings with 33 points, 8 points below the play-off zone.

Burton vs Preston North End: Head-to-head

The only meeting in recent decade between the two sides was in the reverse leg of this season on November 2016. The match ended all square at a 1-1 score-line with both goal falling inside the first 45 minutes.

Burton vs Preston North End: Prediction

Burton Albion might be one of the smallest teams in the Championship, but there is no way you can underestimate them while playing at their own backyard. The team managed by Nigel Clough has only managed 6 wins so far this season and 5 of them have come at home. Moreover, they haven’t lost a home game by more than a 1 goal margin this season. So it is not a surprise that are made slight favourites by the bookies, but do not write off Preston as yet.

Preston had managed to score in their last 7 away games. They were only beaten once during that period, and they quietly picked up 3 wins and 3 draws. Therefore, we firmly believe that they got what it takes to come out with at least a draw from this game.

So a draw is the most likely outcome here and we will go with our correct score prediction of 1-1 at full-time. To be on the safer side, you can back Preston on a double chance to win or draw. However, our primary pick for this game is both teams to score in the match.
