For our Preston vs. Coventry prediction, we're going for a 1-1 draw
Coventry City are looking to continue their strong run of form as they face Preston North End at Deepdale.
Preston North End currently sit 12th in the Championship with twelve wins, nine draws and twelve losses from thirty-three games this season.
PNE have had a fairly mediocre campaign this time around as they look all but destined to hover towards a mid-table finish in May.
They enter this game amidst a fairly poor run of form having won one, drawn two and lost two of their last five matches.
They are, though, currently on a three-match unbeaten run as they come to this game fresh off the back of a much needed 2-1 win over Wigan Athletic at the weekend.
Their home record has been pretty poor of late having lost three of their last five on home soil, but having taken four points from their last two at Deepdale they’ll be hopeful they’ve turned a corner in that regard.
Preston are almost certainly not of the standard needed to make a late run for the play-offs, but they’ll want to win as many games as possible in order to to build in their success next season. For now, they face a tough take against an in form Coventry side.
Coventry City currently sit 11th in the Championship with thirteen wins, nine draws and eleven losses from thirty-three games this season.
After a dreadful start to the campaign, The Sky Blues have been in great form over the past few months and have revived their season admirably as they aim to make a late, albeit unlikely, run for the play-offs.
They enter this game amidst an impressive run of form having won each of their last three games on the bounce.
Most recently, Coventry beat a Sunderland side contending for a top six finish in a 2-1 win at home.
Their away form, however, is far less encouraging given they’ve lost four of their last five league games in the road. Although they did win their most recent outing on the road so they’ll be hoping that’s a sign of things to come.
Coventry were beaten 0-1 by Preston when the two sides met in the league back in August and given the form of the two sides here they’ll fancy themselves to get one back.
Coventry are just five points shy of the play-off spots and given the trajectory of their form they’ll feel as though a top six finish is not out of their reach. They must capitalise on games against out of form sides and a trip to Preston is just that.
