Preston vs Burton
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 26th November, 2016.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Deepdale Stadium, Preston.
Preston North End are on a fine run in this season’s Championship, but could do better as they are sitting at 11st position in the league table. They were held to a goal-less draw by Wolverhampton Wolves in the previous fixture. However, their recent stats are encouraging as they picked up 5 wins and 3 draws from their last 9 matches. The lone defeat during the period came against league leaders Newcastle United.
Burton Albion are on a difficult phase as they are close to the relegation zone at a 2 point distance from Wigan positioned at 22nd. Burton lost 3-0 to Reading last week and this was their third consecutive match without scoring. They are on a 3 match win-less as well, and managed only one win from the last 6. The goal-scoring is a major worry as they went blank in 5 of the last 6.

Preston vs Burton: Prediction
Burton Albion are yet to register an away win in the league this season. Their last three are defeats without scoring. While Preston are on a strong run and are a team that can be trusted regardless of the playing venue. And it is hardly expected that the hosts will be troubled by a Burton side who are finding it hard to score goals at the moment. So it is very likely that the hosts will win this by keeping a clean-sheet.
Preston to win is offered at an excellent odds of 2.00 by some bookmakers. And considering Preston’s current form, this can be used as a bet that boost the value of your accumulator tips.
