Preston North End vs Burton Albion Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Sunday afternoon (12:30) fixture features two sides in need of points at opposite ends of the Championship table.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Preston kept alive their play-off hopes with a victory at Bramall Lane last time out coming out on top of Sheffield United 1-0.  Alan Browne got the only goal of the game as they picked up a somewhat fortunate three points.

Burton registered a third straight victory to keep alive their remarkable hopes of a great escape at the bottom.  Hope Akpan and Lukas Akins got a goal each in a deserved 2-0 defeat of Bolton.

The reverse fixture came in December with Tom Clarke and Daryl Horgan netting in a 2-1 North End victory and Lukas Akins for Albion.  It means that Clarke has now bagged in his last two appearances against Burton.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Both teams need to win this game but at the prices it is the visitors who offer the most appeal.  Preston have won just two of their last seven and Burton look worth chancing on the draw no bet market.

Another bet I like the look is the Brewers time of their first goal which has been priced at 74:00 minutes.  In ten of their last 11 at Deepdale the hosts have conceded before this time while Burton have netted early in two of their last three.

Preston North End Preview

The Lilywhites have taken ten points from their last four fixtures to put them in seventh just two points outside the play-offs.  They have a nine-inferior goal-difference to Derby so they must win and hope that the Rams lose their fixture at home to Barnsley.

At Deepdale, it has been a mixed bag of late with three victories, three draws and three defeats from their last nine.  Eight of their last 11 in front of their own fans have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Alan Browne is ending the season in good scoring form with three goals from his last four appearances.  Around 72% of the goals Preston have scored this season have come in the second-half with 49% in the final 30 minutes.

 

Preston North End Team News

They have no injuries or suspensions ahead of this game.

 

Burton Albion Preview

Three straight victories have brought the Brewers back to life and means they now have a real shot of avoiding the drop.  They need to at least get a point from this fixture and hope one of the other teams slip up.

Away from the Pirelli Stadium, they have taken four points from their last two fixtures though have taken just five points from their visits to top-half sides this season.  They have found the back of the net in each of their last four on the road and six of their last eight on their travels.

Lukas Akins and Liam Boyce have both found the back of the net two times in their last three appearances.  Three of the last four and five of the last eight Burton have played have gone over 2.5 goals with four going over 3.5.

Damien McCrory (shoulder), Lloyd Dyer (hamstring) and Tom Flanagan (unknown) are doubts while Willie Miller is a long-term absentee
