Preston vs Swansea
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 12th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Deepdale (Preston).
Preston suffered an embarrassing defeat against Doncaster in their FA Cup fixture last match-day. Considering that Doncaster is a League One outfit and that the team managed to defeat the Lilywhites despite being on the road, the team from the Championship should reevaluate themselves and their performance.
Swansea will be pleased with themselves that they stopped one of the best offensive threats of the league, in their tracks the last day. Aston Villa found life hard as the Swans recorded a convincing victory over them.
It will be curious to see how Alex Neil’s men will take on the in-form Jacks, with possibly only the home advantage going in favor of them.

Preston vs Swansea Prediction
North End is going through a decline in recent weeks. The team remained winless in all five of their last five games, and four of them were losses. Opposition teams managed to score goals in the last eight straight Preston home matches. The stat extends to 14 of the last 15 appearances by the team at Deepdale.
Swansea, a team in high flying form, will easily find a way to breach the home defense in the second half when legs are tired. The inference is also supported by the observation that Graham Potter’s men have defeated this rival by two goals or more in four of their last seven matches, and a Half Time/Full-Time win was secured by Swansea against Alex Neil’s men in five of their last seven attempts.
The Swans have a lot to gain from this tie as the team is just seven points away from the play-off zone. The team will not take this match lightly.
