Fleetwood vs Preston by UK-Selections

Fleetwood Town welcomes in-form and promotion chasers Preston North End at Highbury Stadium Fleetwood, Lancashire) in some sort of a derby match considering that both teams are fighting for promotion - Fleetwood Town (12th) seats just 4 points less than Rochdale, the team who holds that 6th place which is much desired. From the other side, Preston are 2nd, 3 points advantage over Swindon Town (3rd) and 9 less than Bristol City (1st), but also 2 games in hand for Preston. If we add the fact that Preston will play at home vs Bristol City and manages to win the remaining games, it could be very interesting to see who will take the title (1st and 2nd are taking direct promotion, the title is just matter of prestige).


Team news:


Fleetwood Town's Conor McLaughlin (international duty) will miss out against his former side, Nick Haughton, Danny Andrew and Jamille Matt will also miss out, while Stephen Jordan (hamstring) has missed the last three-matches due to injury and is uncertain for this match. Preston meanwhile, will have Aston Vila's Callum Robinson (on loan) and Bailey Wright (both international duty) unavailable for this clash.


Now, the bet. These two teams despite both chasing promotion/play offs, are in good relations. Fleetwood Town's manager Garry Alexander has spent most of his career playing for Preston and according to him, there are no words what this team (Preston) did for his development. This point maybe is irrelevant, but the way I see it, this will be match without rough play from both teams. Preston is the more quality team here, bigger budget, salaries, team value on the market...


But, Fleetwood are good home team and I can't trust Preston too much and I can't eliminate the option this game to end scoring draw. In that situation, I am taking Preston's talisman - Joe Garner, player who scored 20 goals and is in race for League's Top scorer with Chesterfield's E. Doyle (21) and Swindon's A. Williams (18). Last season, Garner scored 19 goals in 37 matches, while this season, Joe scored 20 in just 28 app's. His progress is obvious and he is developing into a great finisher.


The other option(s) up-front for Preston are J. Beckford, P. Gallagher and K. Davis (all three with age of 30+). J. Beckford was tremendous talent in the period around 2007-2010 when he played for Leeds United, when he scored 70+ goals in those seasons. After that, no success with other teams, many loans... The only player in Preston who is on fire and is up trended is Joe Garner. No matter of the outcome, I see Garner scoring.

Can somebody explain me how is the stake refunded?

Joe Garner played for Preston in the whole match and did not score a single goal. I thought Bet365 refunds stakes when match ends 0-0 but this match ended 1-1

I played this bet and my account has not been refunded. Will it be done later?
