Preston vs Wycombe
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 5 December 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
The Wanderers are one of the worst teams in the competition, and are placed 22nd in a table of 24. They have so far scored the fewest number of goals all through the campaign, and no other team has lost more fixtures as well in the league.
Going on, they are also a recently-promoted team, and have been a total failure so far in adapting to their new surroundings. Moreover, they also have a terrible h2h record against this opponent over the years as well.
Meanwhile, the Lilywhites have struggled to show consistency lately, and particularly in home fixtures. They desperately need a huge win, and this upcoming encounter seems like the perfect opportunity to do it.
They really will be counting on their h2h superiority, their experience in the Championship (compared to that of their counterparts), and the hardships Gareth Ainsworth’s men are going through at the moment.
As such, expect a great game from Preston.
Preston vs Wycombe: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-5 win on the road for Alex Neil’s men.
- They are on a winning run against this opponent since 2000.
- They have scored three or more goals in four of their former five clashes.
- At this stadium, the hosts have a 100% winning record since 1999.
- The home team has also scored two or more goals in every single match-up at this ground.
Preston vs Wycombe: Prediction
The Lilywhites recorded a 2-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Bournemouth. In the meantime, the Chairboys lost 0-1 at home against Stoke.
Going on, Neil’s men had won five of the previous ten overall match-ups. However, their opposite number are on a five-game winless run, and they had failed to score in four of their former five fixtures.
They were also winless in 15 of their last 17 overall match-ups, and in the process they had gone on a nine-game losing run as well.
Moreover, they are on a losing streak in h2h encounters since 2000, and they have conceded three or more goals in four of the preceding five such meetings.
And at this venue, the hosts have a 100% winning record since 1999, and have scored two or more goals in every single one of those games.
Taking these stats into account, expect Preston to have the edge this weekend at the Deepdale.
