Our football match prediction:
Preston will be looking to build on a 2-1 win over Hull City when they host Sunderland at their Deepdale Stadium. The Lilywhites are determined to return to the English top flight, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to turn their dream into reality. Preston are on a seven-game unbeaten run ahead of Saturday’s football match against Sunderland and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. It has to be noted that Alex Neil’s men are after their fifth clean sheet of the season, speaking of home fixtures. Sunderland, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-2 loss to Ipswich Town and it is no surprise they sit in the relegation zone ahead of the trip to Preston. The Black Cats are having a season to forget and, taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.

Highlighted Team (Sunderland):
Sunderland are a professional football club that have been playing their home games at the Stadium of Light since 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 49,000, but before expansion the original ground capacity was 42,000. Red and White shirts are Sunderland’s trademark and the club’s fiercest rivals are Newcastle United. The two local rivals have been contesting in the Tyne-Wear derby since 1898 and there have always been fireworks in what is one of the greatest derbies in English football. Sunderland were on the verge of dropping to the Championship in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign, but experienced tactician Sam Allardyce eventually helped the team avoid relegation. The Black Cats have won six First Division trophies (now the Premier League), with the team lifting two FA Cup titles. Sudnerland won their first FA Cup trophy in 1937, with the team beating Prestson North End 3-1 in the title game. The club was founded in 1879 as Sunderland and District Teachers A.F.C.
