Our football match prediction:
Preston are fighting hard to secure a top-six finish. The Lilywhites are six points behind the play-off places and they face a must-win game in Tuesday’s football match against Bristol City. Preston are unbeaten in previous four league fixtures, but it has to be noted that played out back-to-back draws with the likes of Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest in previous two league games. The Robins suffered a 2-0 loss to Brentford at the weekend, but despite dropping all three points in their last league game, the team remained one point clear of the relegation zone. Bristol City are desperate to return to winning ways in the Championship as well and, taking everything, both teams are likely to find the net in Tuesday’s clash. If we take a danger at head-to-head, we will see that it has been six years since Bristol City recorded their last win over Preston.
