Preston vs Fulham Prediction

Preston have been hit by a sharp decline in form. Shockingly, they have admitted defeat in each of their past four games on the trot. Their last matchup on the road, saw them lose 2-0 to QPR, prior to which, West Brom edged past them with a 1-0 scoreline.

It is also worth mentioning that Preston have found the back of the net just thrice from their last five matchups. They have also lost four of five clashes without so much as a consolation goal to their name.

Having been deprived of any points for the past four weeks in a running, the home side have now slumped down to seventh on the ladder, with thirty-one points in the bag.

Fulham, on the other hand, will be making the trip to Deepdale on the back of a narrow 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bristol City at home. Be that as it may, the visitors have picked up the win in four of their last five matchups.

Furthermore, the guests are unbeaten in their previous three outings. And have been tasting nothing but success in their last two as well. Taking into account that Fulham have not been at the losing end in any of their past five visits here either, the Cottagers are sizing up to be the front runners to come out on top this week.

However, as far as statistics go, Preston are the best home side in the cluster. Considering that the guests have shared the spoils thrice on the road already as well, the safest punt in this one would have to be a Draw no Bet.

Additionally, although Preston have been virtually invisible in the attacking third in their recent games, the same cannot be said in their previous h2h meetings with this foe here. All of their past five clashes at this venue have witnessed both teams find the back of the net together.

Moreover, twenty-five of the thirty-one goals so far for the hosts have come in front of the home crowd. As such, count on neither side to make it out of the ninety minutes with a clean sheet intact.
