Preston almost ran out of goals this season. However, not so that Blackburn will have an easy match in the upcoming clash.
Preston is currently ranked 15th on the rankings, 8 points behind the top 6. In theory, they still have the ability to compete for the play-off spot, but with only 3 rounds to go, it’s really too difficult. Even if they won, but they still have no decision-making power, the opponent only needs to get 1 point to have the opportunity to disappear.
It can be seen that Preston is still showing his strong fighting spirit. They proved confident, and annoyed when playing at home with 5 consecutive unbeaten matches, including 3 wins. Notably, Preston defeated strong opponents like AFC Bournemouth. Preston players ability to create surprises in the next match is not low.
Blackburn is only 3 points behind the top 6. There was a time when they had a huge advantage, even competing for the championship. However, recent form is too bad, causing the “black rose” to almost free fall on the chart. If they want to have a Play-off spot, they need to quickly find the joy of winning.
Since the victory at home against Derby County, Blackburn has only known draws and losses in the last 5 rounds. Notably, the ability to play away from home is extremely poor. In the last 8 trips away from home, they lost 6 matches and only earned 3 draws. Both attack and defense performed poorly and were disappointing. Really, the mentality of coach Tony Mowbray’s team has a problem. Therefore, against an opponent of an unpleasant type like Preston, their possibility of holding a grudge was not low.
