Reason For Preston vs Fulham Predictions

  • The hosts are aiming to turn around their form, while Fulham lost their winning streak at the weekend.
  • Preston have lost at home only once this season, picking up 74% of their points here.
  • No side has a better home record than Preston this term.
  • Fulham have failed to beat any of the top 9 this season.

Turnaround for Preston?

It’s been a tough run for Preston, who have fallen from the top two after a four-game losing streak. That poor run has taken Alex Neil’s men outside the playoff spots, but could things be about to change for the Deepdale outfit? They may be on a poor run, but there’s an opportunity to be had when they face Fulham this week.

The visitors are also in the promotion running, but they’ve had trouble with consistency. Having blown a four-game winning run, the Cottagers could be vulnerable as they look to finally see off one of their fellow promotion candidates.

Home Hopes for Hosts

Preston’s troubles have left them in seventh, with the club now 11 points shy of the automatic promotion spots. Their losing streak has hit them hard, but they are paying the price for some poor form on their travels. Preston have picked up 74% of their points at home this season, with three of their four defeats coming away from home.

Their only loss at home in that run – and in the Championship season to date – came against West Brom. The Baggies hit a penalty winner in added time to steal a 1-0 win, the only blemish on a great record for Preston at Deepdale this term. With their home form pushing them into the promotion picture, they’ll be glad to return here on Tuesday.

Preston Pacesetters

While the hosts have slipped away from the top two, they continue to lead the league in home form. Their seven wins in 10 games here have helped them to that lofty position, as has their return of 25 goals in that time. It’s an impressive haul for a side who didn’t do much in the transfer market over the summer, while it should worry a Fulham side who are lacking a big scalp.

The Cottagers may be favourites here, but they have struggled against the top teams. They’ve failed to win against any of the top nine in the Championship, with Saturday bringing a 2-1 home defeat to Bristol City. When you combine that return with a Preston side who were a minute shy of an unbeaten home record this term, we struggle to see why Fulham are so strongly fancied. We see Preston avoiding defeat here, with the division’s strongest home side well priced to not lose this week.

These two sides have seen both teams score in each of their last six meetings, while Preston have had 70% of their home games finish with both teams hitting the back of the net. We see these two sides sharing the spoils on Tuesday, with Fulham recording three draws in their five meetings with the top nine, with both teams scoring in each. That has us backing a 1-1 draw in midweek at Deepdale.
