Preston vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 1 July 2020
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).
Preston is losing matches at the important period of the season. They are currently 7th in the table and are still in contention for a playoff spot. The hosts are yet to win a match after the restart. This makes them winless in the last 5 league fixtures on the trot which has 4 defeats included.
Derby has a four game winning streak going on and is equal on points with their upcoming opponent. Despite having more wins than the Rams, Preston has lost more games in recent weeks.
Preston vs Derby: Head-to-head (h2h)

- The latest 8 meetings between them had fewer than 2.5 goals in total.
- The last time Preston won this fixture was back in December 2008.
- The visitors are unbeaten in their last 6 trips to this ground.
- Fewer than 2.5 goals were scored in 4 of those 6 games here.
Preston vs Derby: Prediction
The home team previously won a league game back in early February. That win against Hull City who is at the bottom of the table was not surprising. But they could not even win against Luton who is in the relegation zone after that.
The recent defeats against QPR and Cardiff at home will give the visiting team more hope. After all the head to head matches in recent past was dominated by Derby. So I am backing a Double Chance for a draw or Derby winning on Wednesday.
Preston is keen in conceding goals in the latest league fixtures. They have given away 9 goals in the last 5 home games. Derby is the best home team in the competition.
But even though they are good at away matches the defence has problems away from home. So I think we can see goals on both ends of the field in this one.
