Match Preview

Preston North End’s nine-match unbeaten run came to an end at Wolves a couple of weeks back and that 3-2 loss started a run of four straight Championship defeats for Alex Neil’s side. The Lilywhites conceded eleven goals in total in those losses and their poor defensive performances were in stark contrast to the rest of their endeavours at the back in 2017/18. They had let in just eight goals in twelve matches before their poor recent sequence.

Neil’s side were beaten 3-0 by Ipswich prior to today’s Preston North End vs Bolton Wanderers preview – that result will have been the most painful to take for the team from Deepdale, who would consider themselves more than a match for the Tractor Boys. The defeat saw them fall five places in the standings in what is a hugely competitive league.

Bolton Wanderers are in the middle of their most successful period of the season so far. Phil Parkinson’s side are on a five-match unbeaten run, though it’s worth noting that none of the teams they have played are in the current top ten. Even so, it has been quite the turnaround for a squad who had lost eight fixtures on the spin before their more recent improvement. The Trotters are just one place off the bottom of the Championship heading into today’s selection of Preston North End vs Bolton Wanderers betting tips, though a victory on Friday would see them climb to safety.

Preston North End vs Bolton Wanderers Prediction and Betting Advice

Alex Neil has been finding it difficult to mould his defence into a properly functioning defensive unit in recent months. His rear guard have only stopped the opposition scoring once in nine fixtures before today’s free Preston North End vs Bolton Wanderers bets. They conceded eleven in their four most recent matches too. Up front, they have only failed to score three times in their last nine however, so the potential for goals is there.

The Trotters haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last fifteen matches, though they have scored for five successive fixtures. Only Burton Albion and Sunderland have let in more goals in the league in 2017/18 than Phil Parkinson’s men, so it goes without saying that they will find it tough to keep their rivals out on Friday at Deepdale. Bet-at-home’s amazing Championship football odds section is where we found the most valuable prices to accompany our first pick.

Our Preston North End vs Bolton Wanderers predictions were massively influenced by the away game statistics of the visiting side this week. The Trotters have yet to win a league match on their travels this season, drawing four and losing four of their eight contests on the road so far. Only Birmingham City have a worse away record in the Championship since August. In fact, their only away victory from ten matches in all competitions came at Crewe in the Carabao Cup over two months ago.

Although Preston’s results at Deepdale haven’t exactly been earth-shattering, they have been beaten just twice in eight Championship outings there. They didn’t win any of their most recent four league matches there, but they would have picked Friday’s game out as a chance to restore some self-belief on their own turf. We chose Betway’s odds to match the second of our free English football tips. They have amazing value on offer for potential punters.
