Fulham vs Preston Prediction

Fulham brought their three-match winless run to a close last week by getting the better of Swansea with a 1-0 scoreline. Despite the scores staying goalless for the majority part of that latter matchup, the hosts found the winning goal through Aleksander Mitrovic in the dying minutes of stoppage time.

The home team have stumbled just once in their past nine games in the Championship.
Deservedly, Fulham are now sitting third on the table, five points adrift of second-placed Leeds.

On the other hand, Preston have been alternating between wins and defeats in their past four clashes. Their most recent fixture, in particular, witnessed the visitors lose 2-0 to West Brom on the road.

To be frank, the guests have been poor in their outings this season. Miserably, all five wins that they have secured, away from home, have come against sides that are currently dwelling outside the top ten.

In sharp contrast, Fulham have secured the bragging rights in five of their past seven games here. Taking into account that Preston have not come out on top in any of their last three visits to this stadium either, count on the hosts pick up all three points in this one.

Furthermore, the visitors have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet, even in their outings. Admirably, they have found the back of the net at least once, in five of their previous six games on the road.

Additionally, neither side has kept a clean sheet in their past three h2h meetings here. Considering that both teams also had their scoring boots on in the reverse fixture of this clash, expect Preston to bag a consolation goal this weekend.
