Preston vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Sunday, 3rd March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).
A very tough schedule finally managed to break Bristol and their astonishing run of results. There’s no question that the team is one of the current best in the league, but their back-to-back hard matches against Premier League side Wolves (FA Cup) and the league game against topper Norwich, have temporarily halted their form. They have one more tough nut to deal with, in the form of Preston.
Preston is giving a valiant chase for the playoffs with their consistent string of results. They are just six points off entry into the mix, and the game against Bristol could swing their future in the right direction with a win, considering the latter is currently occupying the sixth and final spot that allows a shot at the Premier League.
A very exciting battle is on the cards for the fans.

Preston vs Bristol City Prediction
Disregarding an unfortunate couple of results due to the tough fixture Bristol was allotted, the pair of these teams could be considered as two of the most in-form sides in the competition. Preston has scored in 21 of their last 23 home ties, Bristol repeated the feat in 17 of their last 18 matches. Going on, the hosts of the day scored two or more goals in five of their last seven games, and their counterparts did the same in six of their last nine.
Considering the form of frontlines of either of them, BTTS transpires into the best pick for this tie.
Both these teams are fiercely in pursuit of a place in the Premier League. While Bristol currently occupies the final playoff spot, Preston is at the verge. And as both are gunning for the same objective, it would be hard for the match to be one-sided. Their respective forms is also a reason to refuse the favorites tag for any single one. Taking these into account, we think there would be no definitive result in the first 45 minutes of the tie.
