Preston vs Derby County
England – League Championship.
Date: Tuesday, 16 August, 2016
Kick-off: 19:45 UK.
Venue: Deepdale Stadium (Preston).
Preston will continue searching for a League win as the host Derby County on Tuesday night for the Championship third game of the season,
The North End side have kicked of their season in the most awful way, they were unlucky to have lost their first 2 league games. Preston North End kicked off the season with a 1-0 defeat away to Reading, a first half lone goal was enough disaster for them.
Also Preston Was condemned to defeat at home by Fulham last weekend to compile their woes, goals from Aluko and Smith in 33′ and 67′ minutes did the trick respectively. Although C. Robinson pulled 1 goal back, it wasn’t enough to save them. They now hope for a win or at least a draw avoid rocking the bottom of the table.
Meanwhile Derby County started the season with a barren draw at home, they played out a 0-0 draw against Brighton. Derby’s predicament got worse in the second game as they were beaten 2-0 away. The only win they have this season is the league Cup win against Grimsby Town.

The North End side have been poor at home, they were unable to win their last 7 home games, also they have injury issues which includes Calum Woods and Stevie May.
I predict a win for the visitors, but I expect the home teams to get a goal in the game.
