Derby vs Preston Prediction

Preston took all advantage of their home status the last match-day, as they welcomed Huddersfield. Right away in the 4th minute itself did the team found the back of the net to put the visitors under pressure.

Later, in the 33rd, they added one more, and their third in the 50th completely put the guests out of contention. The visiting contingent did score one late into the game, but by then it was too late, too little.

Derby too had a similar story in their previous home tie. One goal apiece in each half of the match-up settled the game in their favor against Middlesbrough.

This upcoming match-day, consider that Preston is one of the best in the whole competition, and are on a three-match winning streak. They have also lost just thrice in their former 15 straight games. In addition, the team currently possesses the second spot in league standings and impressively has scored the most number of goals in the contest till now.

On the other hand, Derby lost three of their prior five overall matches and is placed way behind 16th in the table. As per the current form, we can count on the guests, Preston, to avoid a loss at the best, this weekend.

However, keep note that Derby had been the better performer in h2h clashes for quite a long time, and in fact, they have not lost against this opponent since 2008. Moreover, they do have the home advantage this game week, and that should count to something.

As such, goals seem a likely possibility at either end of the pitch, and this raises the potential of the BTTS bet.
