Preston vs Birmingham Prediction
The Lilywhites are at the14th spot on the standing with 31 points from 23 games. They won and lost 8 games each while drawing on 7 other occasions. They have scored 26 in total while conceding a sum of 29 so far in the league.
Preston won the past two league fixtures against Barnsley and Stoke by 2-1 margin. But they were knocked off the England FA Cup against Cardiff by 2-1 at the 30 minute extra time after the regulars.
On the other hand, Birmingham resides at the 18th position on the table with 27 points. Of the 24 matches played, they won only 7 games while drawing on 6 and losing on 11 other occasions. Their total goals to conceding ratio stands at 23:32 which shows their poor attacking and defensive index.
The Blues are on a downfall, losing 2 back to back Championship games against Blackburn and QPR. They also exited the FA Cup at the Round of 32 against Plymouth after conceding a goal in the 104th minute after their regular schedule got over seeking no goals. They have also been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing giving opponents 12 goals overall.
Preston North End haven’t been beaten in the league by Birmingham City in their last 2 matches and are also undefeated in their previous 2 home fixtures.
We envisage a home win as Preston are good at home while the visitors are terrible at away fixtures winning only 25% of the away schedules this season.
