      Preston vs Charlton Predictions

       

      Preston are enjoying a fine campaign and their 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday was their 3rd successive victory. It also helped close the gap on the Owls who occupy the final play-off position to 8 points and another win here could leave Preston fans dreaming of an unlikely late promotion bid when their only real aim this season was survival.

      Charlton fans by contrast would be delighted if they can somehow scramble their way out of the bottom 3 by May but it is looking unlikely. A 3-0 defeat at Fulham on Saturday leaves them rooted to the bottom and 6 points off safety. They have won just 1 of their last 16 matches in all competitions.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      Charlton’s solitary win in that period came against a Rotherham side which like themselves aren’t particularly well-drilled in the art of defending. They won’t get anything like that number of openings against a Preston side that has an excellent defensive record and concedes less than a goal per game on average. They’ve won 4 of their last 5 at Deepdale but aren’t the sort of side to score an avalanche of goals so Charlton should be spared another heavy defeat on the road but it’s hard to see them getting anything from the game. Backing Preston to win 2-0 at 11/2 therefore looks a sensible strategy here.
