England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 21 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Deepdale Stadium (Preston).
The Lillywhites look to have caught the wanted shape at just about the right time given they are still win the contest for the top-six finish in the remaining three rounds of the competition. Preston are just three points shy of Millwall in sixth and they have a great chance to move lock on points with the Lions who are set to play on the same day.
Alex Neil can finally be satisfied with his team’s attacking displays as Preston bagged five goals in consecutive victories over Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers. Callum Robinson was the man who stole the show last weekend when he bagged a brace at Loftus Road Stadium.
The Canaries have nothing to play for in the remaining games of the season. They sit 13th in the league ladder and they will travel to Deepdale Stadium after conceding two late goals in the 0-2 loss to Cardiff City at Carrow Road. Norwich City are winless in last six games on the road, each of which saw both teams on target.

Preston North End vs Norwich City: Prediction
Daniel Farke’s side has been very easy to break down on the road this season. The fact that each of their last six away games in the competition saw the BTTS option “come in” confirms the German manager’s attacking style of football which leaves plenty of room for opponents to strike.
Preston’s attacking like will come into this in high spirits as the team notched five gaols in last two wins. Given the match has a much greater significance for the Lilywhites who will also have the home court advantage, we just have to back Preston North End to win at the odds of 1.75. You can also take the hosts to net two or more goals at 1.80.
