Preston North End have made a dramatic revival from their poor start to the 2016/17 Championship campaign by picking up 11 points from their last 6 matches. They started off suffering 5 defeats from their first 6 matches. Now the tables are slowly turning with a combination of some fine performances in front of their home crowd. Preston are unbeaten in their last four games which constitutes 2 wins at home and 2 draws on the road. It is not a doubt that their strong displays will come at the Deepdale as they are coming to the matchday 13 on the back of three home wins in a row with clean-sheets.
Huddersfield were finally dismantled as the league leaders of Championship after suffering the first home win of the season against an in-form Sheffield Wednesday by a narrow 1-0 margin. The Terriers have won in each of their previous 5 home matches and they still remain inside the play-off zone positioned at 3rd in the league table. However, they are finding it hard to maintain the good start to the season when they were unbeaten in the first 6 matches with 5 wins and a draw. The next 6 saw them losing 3 times, while taking 3 wins.
