Form and Tactical Analysis
Last rounds defeat was the first in 10 competitive games for Preston. Despite the los the team looks in form and ready to get another victory. Their home form is looking good mainly due to their defensive line. 3 victories and 3 draws keeping 4 clean sheets.

The 4-3-3 is the preferred team formation. They are sharp up front and able to score to any opponent but too uncovered at the back.
