Preston vs Leeds
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 9th April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).
The chance for Preston to take part in the post-season proceedings is fast disappearing and something needs to be done urgently. With six match-days remaining, they have a five-point surplus to overcome, and some teams above them have a game in hand. No matter who the opponents are, Preston has no option but to perform in the next six games.
Leeds has a place in the playoffs safely in their kitty, but a direct-promotion spot would be exponentially more desirable, and currently, it’s just one point away. But a thing of bother is that Sheffield United, the current holder of the second spot is taking on Birmingham next, who lost four of their last five games. Leeds has to deliver this Tuesday, or risk their preferred runner-up position.

Preston vs Leeds Prediction
Leeds was unbeaten in seven of their last ten games and has a 19-point lead over Preston in the table. Meanwhile, Preston lost their last two fixtures and was winless in eight of their last ten home ties. Going on, Leeds registered six of the last eight wins and was unbeaten in four of the last five encounters at this venue. Three of them were wins.
Coupled to this, consider Leeds has to go after their opponents in the remaining fixtures, due to Sheffield having a one-point lead at the second position, and thus we feel the best pick is a Leeds win. But to be on the safe side, we’ll opt DNB.
Preston will not roll over for their visitors though. They found the back of the net in 21 of their last 25 home ties, and only once have they failed to score at home against Leeds. Expect both teams to get in on the goal-scoring action.
