This could be a fairly easy one for Preston as they are a team on with good morale and confidence on the back of some good results. Wolves are a side in tatters and are yet to taste a win since September. It is hard to see them doing something substantial at the Deepdale stadium, which is usually a difficult ground for the visiting teams.
