EFL: PNEFC vs Cardiff

It seems that the break of up to 3 months is not enough for Preston to regain confidence. Even after returning to Preston, it was so bad that the Luton team got a draw. The serious decline in form made the Deepdale team face a series of challenges before the great war with Cardiff City. Let's wait and see, before the risk of losing the promotion play-off ticket, whether Preston will subdue a high promoted Cardiff City.

The final greatly influenced Preston's goal of reaching the playoffs. If counting before the 39th round of the English First Division, Preston is the dominant team when standing in 6th place with 57 points. Their achievements come from 16 victories, 9 draws and 13 defeats. However, it is important to know that A. Neil's teachers and coach are only better than Cardiff by goal difference. If you look further, they are only better than the 12th team by the distance of a win. Given the current situation, Preston will fall deep on the overall table if he loses in the confrontation against Cardiff. That is completely true, because Preston's performance is very poor at this time. Specifically, in the last 4 rounds they did not win, in which they received 3 defeats and only 1 draw. Therefore, despite playing at home, but with the above performance, fans have the right to worry about a blank script of Preston.

Cardiff City had suddenly crushed Leeds (2-0) in their first match back from the epidemic. The results show the determination determination of coach Neil Harris and his students. By this time Cardiff City also has 57 points but must be ranked one step below Preston due to poor number of goal difference. In terms of form, Cardiff City are playing well when unbeaten in the last 3 rounds. In which they get 2 consecutive victories recently. In the next match, they have a great opportunity to climb to the 6th position when they only have to be a guest before the team does not have stability in this game. The head-to-head record in the last 5 matches is leaning towards the host when they have won 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. However, in the first confrontation, the landlord is not in good form. Therefore the opportunity for Cardiff City to subdue the opponent is not feasible.
