England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 10 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Deepdale Stadium (Preston).
Preston North End have seriously halted their push for the promotional playoffs with a streak of three consecutive defeats in Championship. Such run left the team six points below the top six spots and Leeds United’s visit on Tuesday with be the last chance for the Lilywhites to catch up and re-join the battle.
The Peacocks have had way too many ups and downs of their own throughout the campaign. They were close to the playoffs ion the previous term, but they are nowhere near it this time out. Leeds failed to clinch a three-pointer on Saturday when they only drew 1-1 to Sunderland at Elland Road. The draw followed the straightfoprw3ard defeat to red-hot Fulham.
To sum it all up, both teams have been struggling for goals lately. Alex Neil’s men have scored just one in last three games, none in last two. The visitors, on the other side, bagged just one in last two, being pretty easy to break down at the other end at the same time. Furthermore, Paul Heckingbottom’s side is winless in last nine matches on the road in all competitions. Six of these nine have ended in losses. The team has shipped two or more goals on each of last five travels in the Championship.
