Our football match prediction:
Deepdale Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Preston and Brighton. The Lilywhites aim to build on a 1-0 win over Burton Albion, but beating the league leaders is easier said than done. Anyhow, Preston are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach in Saturday’s clash and, no doubt, the hosts would be happy with one point from the game. Over the years Brighton have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the Championship and predict that the Seagulls will secure automatic promotion to the Premier League this time out. Brighton have been impressive in the English second tier so far this season and they are likely to extend their winning run in the league to six games. The Seagulls came from behind to beat Fulham at Craven Cottage on Monday and it is no surprise they are regarded as favourites on paper to win the Deepdale Stadium showdown.
