Preston vs Norwich prediction
Preston (14) vs Norwich (1)
Preston are overall in pretty good shape with 3-2-0 last 5 league matches. That means they are placed in the middle with 14 points down to the relegation zone but also 11 points up to a playoff spot for promotion. Total record is 10-10-11 with 47-46 in goal difference. They are coming from winning away vs Bolton (23), in a match they won without problems.
The leaders of the league, Norwich, will go into this match with a lot of confidence. They are playing really good football at the moment and are coming from two very impressive victories. First they won 1-3 away vs promotion rivals Leeds (2), and they also won the last match vs Ipswich (24) by 3-0. Total record is 17-9-5 with 60-39 in goal difference. They are, in my opinion, favourites for promotion.
* Norwich won the reverse fixture 2-0 back in August
Although Preston looks solid at the moment, I think its fair to consider the guests as favourites tonight. They have been playing very good lately and their morale & confidence are probably very good. Preston are placed in the middle, and cant have the same motivation as Norwich here I think. Also, remember that Norwich only have lost 1 away match this season (7-7-1). Norwich to win this seems to be a nice value bet for me.
