Preston has never been afraid of Bristol City in the past and they are also gaining high confidence after the victory over West Brom a few days ago. The fact that the opponent is currently in a crisis of form, the opportunity for the Deepdale home team to retain 3 points is extremely open.
Two goals from striker Emil Riis and Cameron Archer helped Preston beat West Brom 2-0 convincingly. This is a very important victory to help Preston regain his spirit after 4 consecutive winless matches. This is the period when the Deepdale team is not really stable, they won 2 and also lost 2 after the last 5 rounds. Besides, Preston also stopped in the FA Cup when he became a defeated general at the hands of Cardiff.
However, at home, Preston still retains a necessary stubbornness, they are unbeaten in all 4 recent receptions (draw 2, lose 2). After a total of 27 rounds, Preston won 9, drew 9 and also lost 9. Holding 36 points Preston is currently ranked 13th on the rankings. Coach Frankie McAvoy’s team always kept the discomfort at home. Since the beginning of the season, Preston has only received 2 defeats after 14 visits in the Championship. That will be a fulcrum for them to be confident in the upcoming clash with Bristol City.
The only goal of striker Andreas Weimann could not help Bristol City avoid a 1-2 defeat as a guest of Luton in the middle of the week. Immediately after defeating Cardiff before, Bristol City was immediately brought back to the ground. This team is playing very unstable recently, they lost 3 and won 2 after the last 5 rounds. It works out that Bristol City has lost 6 of the last 10 matches in all competitions and won only 3 of them.
Things got worse for Bristol City when they lost 6/7 recent away matches. The defense of this team is playing very badly and has conceded 49 goals since the beginning of the season. This is the main reason why they only brought back 33 points and are currently ranked 16th on the rankings. After 15 away matches in the Championship this season, Bristol City lost 8. Moreover, they lost 5 of their last 10 matches against Preston and brought back only 1 win.
