Preston North End vs Blackburn Rovers
Date: Tuesday, 24 November 2020
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Deepdale, Preston
After a furious start to the new football campaign, form of Blackburn Rovers has started declining rapidly. Squad from Ewood Park slipped to 14th place after poor performances in October, but it seems like things are starting to get better. They collected five points in the last three outings, so spirits are surely high ahead of a rough away day on Tuesday at Deepdale.
Preston North End have been very hard to predict since the season started. The Lillywhites have four wins and three losses in the last 40 days. Stats at this stadium have been terrible though. All in all, we are expecting to see a narrow contest.

Preston vs Blackburn Prediction
Preston NE have the worst stats in the league when it comes to games at home. They started the new season with five straight defeats at Deepdale, finally ending the bad run last weekend with a 1-0 victory against Sheffield Wednesday. The only goalscorer in that match was Tom Barkhuizen in the second half. Lillywhites scored 14 goals on the road, but only two at home. A big majority of those came from Scott Sinclair (5 goals total).
As for their opposition, Blackburn Rovers have the highest number of scored goals in the league – 24 in 12 games. This said, their 14th place does come as a surprise. Adam Armstrong is Championship’s top goalscorer with 11 goals. We don’t think he will be able to help Blackburn on Tuesday night though. Preston definitely have the quality to compete for top six positions, and they just ended the bad run at home. We fancy the 2.50 rate on Lillywhites to beat Rovers.
