Preston vs West Brom Prediction
Preston have fallen out of their winning groove and have been admitting back to back defeats in their previous two games, both of which have been on the road. Their last clash saw them lose to Hull by a thumping 4-0 scorecard. Prior to this, Derby edged past them with a lone goal from Martyn Waghorn.
Having dropped points rapidly, the hosts are now sitting fifth on the ladder, eight points behind their counterparts for the week.
West Brom, on the other hand, have been putting nothing but their best foot forward in their recent clashes at home and on the road. The visiting contingent are sporting a very impressive four-match winning streak at the moment, the most recent of which was a 4-1 win over Bristol City at home.
It is also worth mentioning that the guests have stumbled just once on the road this season, and have garnered maximum points from their last three outings on the trot. Taking into account that they also secured the bragging rights in their previous visit here as well, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of West Brom this week.
However, Preston are currently the best home side in the cluster, as far as statistics go. They are yet to feature at the losing end here and have come away with the win in seven of their last nine clashes.
Moreover, West Brom have shared the spoils twice already in their outings. Hence the safest punt would be backing a Draw no bet.
Furthermore, despite the promising form that Preston are on, the hosts have not looked sharp at the back and have conceded eight goals from their last five matchups here alone. Meanwhile, West Brom have not kept a clean sheet on the road against a side that is currently featuring in the top five as of now.
Additionally, two out of their last three h2h meetings here have witnessed both teams find the back of the net. As such, expect Preston to get their names on the scoresheet along with West Brom in this one.
