Preston vs Birmingham by Marlo
Preston has seen an upturn in their fortunes of late that was started with a win over Burnley at Turf Moor, I remember watching that game in disgust as Burnley wasted their chances and were punished late on by Preston as they ran out 2-0 winners. I think I was tipping a 1.5 shot for that game as I had Burnley DNB. I regret tipping in that way and I don't think I ever want to go back to tipping like that.
Preston followed up that win with another success this weekend, this time a 1-0 win over Reading.
Birmingham too had some success as they held Middlesbrough to a 0-0 draw.
Take away those two back to back wins and it was 5 draws in the last 8 for Preston.
Well, on current form, hard to make a case for Birmingham as they have no wins in their last 4, 3 losses. If we go back even further, its a single win in their last 8. That alone puts me off DNB on Birmingham.
They will sit deeper and play on the counter attack and given the lack of goals for Preston a single counter attacking goal for Preston may be enough. Daniel Johnson is the key threat for the hosts.
At home Preston has drawn 5 of their last 8 within 90 minutes all competitions.
Stalemate is very likely here.
