Preston North End vs Sheffield Wednesday – Championship.
Deepdale Stadium, Preston – 20 February, 15:00.
Match Preview and Betting Tips.
If we take into consideration last 10 Championship matches, Sheffield Wednesday are the top team when it comes to number of collected points – 23 out of 30. This great series of results allowed them to boost position on Championship table to 5th position, only five points behind Middlesbrough and direct promotion to Premier League. They will be visiting Deepdale Stadium this Saturday to face Preston North End, team which is also on very hot streak as well. Probably because of fact that Preston is rarely losing home matches, odds on both home and away victory are currently the same – 13/5. Sheffield Wednesday had no big trouble to beat Preston in their first meeting on Hillsborough Stadium. They had full control of that match and won deservedly 3 – 1.
Preston North End are in exactly same position where their club board wanted them to be at this stage. They are 99% safe from getting relegated, currently sitting on 11th place with 42 points. Position number 6 is also not impossible to reach, but I would say they need to win at least 8 – 9 matches before the end to have decent shot. They have two wins in a row at the moment, both ending in their favor with result 2 – 1. First they snatched home victory against Huddersfield Town with stoppage time goal, followed with away victory against Wolves.
Sheffield Wednesday fans are thrilled with recent form of their teams. Five thousand of them will travel to support their squad against Preston. Sheffield Wed are currently on streak of two consecutive victories – against Birmingham City 2 – 1 and Brentford 4 – 0. F.Forestieri once again has shown his quality and importance for this team, scoring one and providing assist for another goal in last match.
