Preston vs Birmingham Match Preview

Preston made it back-to-back victories with a 2-1 success at Middlesbrough coming from behind to claim all three points. It moves them to ninth just two points off the play-offs and stretches their unbeaten run to 11.

At Deepdale, the Lilywhites are unbeaten in their last six though five of these have finished all-square. Just one of the last six played here in the Championship have gone over 2.5 goals with three finishing 1-1.

Birmingham have now lost three straight in the league this time going down 2-0 at home to struggling Millwall. They are down to 12th and although just six points from the play-offs the threat of a points punishment hangs over them so they will be looking down rather than up.

Away from St Andrew’s, the Blues have lost just one of their last four and two of their previous nine. Eight of their last 11 on the road have gone over 2.5 goals while the two that did not still featured two goals.

The hosts should win this one given they are in good form and the visitors are struggling at the moment. I could not put anyone off backing North-End but a tendency to draw too many (five of last six) at their place means I will look elsewhere for the value.

Both teams need to win this fixture for their promotion hopes and with this the third game in a spell of a week some tired legs could lead to an open game in the second-half. I like the second 45 minutes to feature the most goals and over 1.5 goals in this period.
