Preston vs Birmingham (By: Joey)
Preston North End have the opportunity to propel into the playoff positions when they entertain Birmingham City at Deepdale this weekend. Alex Neil’s side have remained unbeaten since the defeat on New Year’s Day and their run has put them within two points off the top-six. Birmingham, however, are four points off their weekend counterparts amid their losing streak this month.
Preston made it two wins on the trot after securing a 2-1 comeback triumph over Middlesbrough on the road. Preston benefited from a second-half red card for the hosts and bagged their sixth-straight away triumph.
Birmingham, meanwhile, succumbed to a third successive defeat in midweek where Millwall secured a 2-0 win over them. Ben Thompson starred for the visitors with a first-half brace, which ended a four-match losing run.
Preston’s recent meeting against Birmingham was at St Andrew’s Stadium in December which ended 3-0 in the favour of the latter. The last encounter at Deepdale ended in a 1-1 draw in January 2018. My betting tips and predictions anticipate a home win.
