EFL: Preston vs Blackburn




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.
