- Norwich have won nine of their last ten league games (D1).
- The Canaries have bagged 13 victories in their 19 away starts this season (D2, L4).

- The Lilywhites have won just five of their 19 home outings this season, losing ten.
Easy pickings for the Canaries at Deepdale
Preston grabbed a 2-2 draw when these sides met at Carrow Road in September’s reverse fixture, but it’s hard to envisage the toiling Lilywhites getting anything from this Good Friday clash.
Alex Neil’s departure from Deepdale during the international break was no great surprise based on the woeful campaign that North End have endured thus far, and their miserable record at home has undoubtedly been the biggest problem.
The Lilywhites have won just five of their 19 starts here, losing ten, and they have posted just one victory at Deepdale since late December.
Interim boss Frankie McAvoy will do his best to make an impact in the games that remain this season, though this contest looks like a hiding to nothing with leaders Norwich winning nine of their last ten (D1) and 13 of their 19 away trips (D2, L4) this term.
Preston have also picked up just one point from their last five league games overall going into this one, so we’re encouraging punters to play with a straight bat by backing an away win, alongside a 1-3 correct score.
