Preston vs Burton
England League Championship
Date: Saturday, 26th November, 2016.
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Deepdale Stadium, Preston.
Life started well for Clough in this second spell as Burton manager, but the honeymoon period is well and truly over and the former Derby manager has a tough task on his hands saving his current side from relegation. This weekend Preston play host to Burton, with the home side hoping to pick up 3 more points in their bid to finish in one of those much sort after play-off places. The visitors arrive 2 points above the drop zone, but Cardiff and Blackburn, both of whom are placed below Albion, picked up wins last weekend which closed the gap between them significantly. SkyBet don’t fancy Burton’s chances tomorrow, offering just 29/10 on the away win, 23/10 for the draw and evens on a home victory. The way things a currently going for both teams makes it hard to disagree with those odds, and I’m already picturing a fairly comfortable victory for tomorrows hosts.

Preston vs Burton: Prediction
Burton Albion are yet to register an away win in the league this season. Their last three are defeats without scoring. While Preston are on a strong run and are a team that can be trusted regardless of the playing venue. And it is hardly expected that the hosts will be troubled by a Burton side who are finding it hard to score goals at the moment. So it is very likely that the hosts will win this by keeping a clean-sheet.
Preston to win is offered at an excellent odds of 2.00 by some bookmakers. And considering Preston’s current form, this can be used as a bet that boost the value of your accumulator tips.
