Tip Reasoning

  • Preston are scoring an average of 1.36 goals per home game whilst conceding exactly one goal per game.
  • Birmingham City are scoring just 0.83 goals per away game this season.
  • The visitors have lost their last three games and are without a win across their last five games.

League position is now the main focus

These two sides clash after both suffering FA Cup third round defeats last time out, with hosts Preston losing to Cardiff City and Birmingham City suffering defeat at the hands of League One side Plymouth Argyle.

It was the fourth season on the bounce that the ‘lilywhites’ have been knocked out of the FA Cup in the third round but it means that they can now fully focus on their remaining Championship games and work towards entering the mix for a playoff spot. They’ve won their first two league games since manager Ryan Lowe took charge last month, the last Preston manager to achieve three straight wins as a new manager was Gary Peters back in 1994.

Birmingham City’s winless run continued last time out as their loss to Plymouth Argyle marked five matches in which the visitors have failed to emerge victorious. They’ve also lost six of their last nine matches and manager Lee Bowyer will be wanting more from his side. Survival is the main goal for the East Midlands outfit but serious improvement will be required.

Home side to take all three points

We worry for the visitors this season and things don’t look like they’ll get too much better here. We’re siding with Preston to get the victory and pile the misery on Birmingham.
