Preston Form


Preston’s run of three games without defeat has come to an abrupt end as they find themselves sat 16th in the Championship.

Alex Neil’s side had picked up seven points from three matches against Bournemouth, Wycombe and Middlesbrough before their last two matches.

They have lost both of them, starting with a 3-0 loss at Luton before losing 2-1 to Barnsley last time out.

Preston did take the lead through Sean Maguire but conceded twice in the second half to lose the match.

Preston Team News


Preston will be without Patrick Bauer, Ben Pearson, Billy Bodin and Louis Moult through injury.

Bristol City Form


Like Preston, Bristol City find themselves stuck in a poor run of form as they approach the midway stage of the season.

The Robins have lost three of their last four matches in the Championship, starting with a 1-0 defeat to Birmingham.

That was followed by a 1-0 win over Blackburn, but consecutive 2-0 defeats against Rotherham and Millwall leaves them 9th in the table.

In the latter, Tom Bradshaw and Mason Bennett got on the scoresheet to give the London side the three points in midweek.
