Norwich City vs Preston North End Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) sees Alex Neil take his current Preston team to the home of his old team Norwich. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Norwich continued their recent poor form as they suffered a 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest in midweek. A 77th minute goal for the home side proved to be the difference between the two teams. Preston put to an end their poor run of form by defeating Bristol City 2-1 on Tuesday evening. Paul Gallagher netted just before half-time to put them ahead and a 78th minute Callum Robinson goal secured all three points. The two meetings between these sides last season ended in away victories with the Canaries winning 3-1 at Deepdale and the Lillywhites won 1-0 at Carrow Road. In fact, the home team has won just one of the last five head-to-heads.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Alex Neil will still be smarting from his sacking as Norwich boss last season and he will have his Preston side fired up for this one. Confidence is high after victory at Bristol City while the home side are on a poor run of form which means the visitors should be backed in the draw no bet market. Given the struggles the home side are having to score especially in front of their own fans then the visitors look worth a small interest to keep a clean-sheet

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries promotion challenge has come off the rails in recent weeks after taking just one point from their last five fixtures. Each of their next five comes against teams in the top 14 with Norwich sitting just beneath that spot. At Carrow Road, it has been a struggle with no victory in six though four of these have finished all-square. The seven home goals they have netted is the second lowest in the division. Just three of the last 13 matches involving the East Anglian outfit have gone over 2.5 goals and seven have gone under 1.5 goals. Just five of their last 14 have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Norwich City Team News

Alex Pritchard (ankle) and Steven Naismith (groin) are back in training while Matt Jarvis (ankle) and Alex Tettey (calf) are closing in on returns. The game will come too soon though for Jamal Lewis (knee) and Louis Thompson (Achilles) who are long-term absentees.

Preston North End Preview

Four points from their last two games has halted a slide that had seen the Lillywhites lose four straight. This represents the start of a decent run of fixures with just one of their next six against a team in the top eight. Away from Deepdale, they have had a mixed set of results with three victories, three draws and three defeats from nine. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals has happened in five of their last six on their travels. Around 66% of the goals North-End have scored have come in the second-half with none in the opening 15 minutes. Three of their last five have been all-square going into the half-time break.

Preston North End Team News

Sean Maguire (hamstring) is a long-term absentee while Gregory Cunningham (knee) is expected to miss out.
