Swansea City v Preston North End Tips & Predictions
17th August 2019 – 15:00
Match Preview & Team News
Swansea somehow managed to keep inspired Derby County forwards at bay last weekend earning a goalless draw in spite of being dominated throughout the entire match. The Welsh outfit thus backed up the opening victory over Hull City as they sit in the top half of the standings with four points from two games. Can they keep a perfect home record in the third round fixture against Preston North End on Saturday afternoon?
The visitors will also head into this on a high. They did open the season with a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Millwall away at The Den, but they bounced back in style, netting three goals past Wigan Athletic last time out. Sean Maguire and Louis Moult opened up the way for the victory with two first-half goals, while experienced midfielder Sam Gallagher set the final score with a beautiful second-half strike.
The Lilywhites went on to demolish Bradford City 0-4 on Tuesday evening in the opening tie of the League Cup. Alex Neil’s men bagged seven goals without any response in the last two games. They only conceded once in three outings and the Swans may well struggle to create in the build-up play on Saturday at Liberty.
The hosts were also successful in mid-week, beating Northampton Town 3-1 at home to advance to the second round of the League Cup. They have won 8 and drawn 1 of 9 matches this summer. They produced 42 goals in 23 home outings in the previous term of the Championship, only 5 of which they lost.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Both teams will come into this on a high, but Swansea City are a very tough nut to crack in their own patch and we have to recognize the value of the 6/5 odds offered for their victory here.
Goals Market Prediction
This will be a close encounter and we would not be surprised to see Preston losing the second away outing with an identical 1-0 scoreline. Braver tipsters can try with the correct score pick at the odds of 7/1.
