Over 2.5 Match Goals

Preston 2-1

Reason for tip

A 2-1 correct score prediction appeals due to both teams being in poor form and goals on both sides looking likely. Preston have the extra rest after Birmingham had to endure a tough FA Cup game in midweek, and will look to pile the misery on a struggling Blues side.

Birmingham vs Preston Predictions

Tip Reasoning

  • Birmingham have conceded 13 goals in their last five games
  • Preston haven’t drawn a game since the 1st of October
  • Preston have scored in 69% of their away fixtures this season

Do or die football

When Preston play, more often than not the game end with one team on top. They are without a draw since the 1st of October, a stark contract to the start of their season which saw five draws in their opening six games. Their recent turbulent form and do or die results lead to suggest this game will be no different, and Saturday’s game could see 13th placed PNE come out on top due to their stronger league standing.

Birmingham’s defensive woes

Although the Blues ran out victorious following an early setback in Tuesday night’s FA Cup replay against League One Forest Green Rovers, the amount of goals they have shipped in recent games has to be a worry. With 13 conceded in their last five league games, and some magical work from Neil Etheridge the only thing stopping them from conceding a further two to their League One FA Cup opponents, Preston could look to capitalise on Saturday.

This, combined with Birmingham’s scoring rate of 71% at home, means goals are almost guaranteed, and a prediction of over 2.5 goals looks good value for this fixture.

Looking over their shoulders

Birmingham will have one eye on the relegation zone, as while they sit three places outside of the bottom four, they are only three points ahead of Cardiff. Preston could pile on the pressure this weekend, and in doing so move themselves further away by increasing their eight point gap on the drop zone.
