Tip Reasoning

  • Preston have suffered just one home defeat in 12 games
  • Blackburn have not won in nine away matches
  • Rovers have failed to score in seven of those outings

Preston strong at Deepdale

Since Ryan Lowe took charge of Preston in December, he has lost just one home game, with the club currently on a run of five without defeat.

They have beaten high-flying Bournemouth and Queens Park Rangers during that time and have still suffered just one loss at Deepdale to a team in the top half of the table.

Goals have been a problem on the road, where North End have not scored in four, but at home they have netted in 18 of their 21 games, with the likes of Emil Riis and Cameron Archer a constant threat.

Blackburn’s play-off challenge nearly over

Since the goals of Ben Brereton Diaz dried up, Blackburn have slipped further and further down the table and they now sit three points outside the relegation zone having won just one in nine.

Tony Mowbray’s side have been particularly poor on the road, where they are on a run of four defeats in five, even losing 2-1 to Peterborough last week despite leading 1-0 after 77 minutes.

Rovers still have a chance to salvage their season, but they have failed to even score in 10 of their last 15 outings, seven of which came away from home.

Preston should win this based on the form book, so a home win is my initial selection, while 2-0 is my correct score prediction.
