West Brom vs Preston Prediction

West Brom secured all three points last week in their trip to Bristol City by slotting no less than three unanswered goals past their foes. The hosts hardly broke a sweat in that latter matchup and finished the ninety minutes with eight shots on target, as opposed to their counterparts who managed just one.

Impressively, the home team are now unbeaten in their last five games on the trot and have dropped points just once in the process. With sixty-six points to their name, West Brom are currently enjoying the view at the top of the table with a four-point cushion over Leeds.

On the other hand, Preston bounced back with a win in their most recent clash by getting the better of Hull with a narrow 2-1 scoreline. The visitors are on a convincing run of form at the moment as well and have stumbled in just one of their previous eight games.

It is also worth mentioning that the guests are on a three-match winning streak on the road as we speak. However, all three of those victories came against sides that are currently dwelling in the bottom half of the ladder.

In sharp contrast, West Brom have tasted defeat just twice at home this season. Furthermore, the hosts have secured the bragging rights in each of their previous seven meetings with Preston here.

As such, the visitors have little or no chance of salvaging even a point in this one.

Additionally, West Brom have treated their faithful to plenty of goals here this term. In fact, they have found the back of the net thirty-four times at home so far, which is the joint-highest tally by any side in the cluster as well.

Moreover, Preston have had their scoring boots on in their recent outings too. Admirably, they have racked up seven goals from their past three trips on the road alone.

Given that all but one of their previous four h2h meetings here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, rule out any chances of a low scoring affair unfolding this week.
