Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back wins over the likes of Huddersfield Town and Norwich City, Preston suffered a 2-1 loss to Newcastle United on Matchday 15. However, the Lilywhites did well to beat struggling Rotherham United on the road in their last league fixture and thanks to the triumph the team managed to keep their hopes of booking their place in the Championship play-offs alive. Preston welcome Wolverhampton at their Deepdale Stadium on Saturday and given that the Wolves are on a seven-match winless run in the league, home win appears on the horizon. The attacking partnership of Robinson and Hugill has been in a perfect working order of late and the duo is likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders. Taking everything into account, Preston have been in a much better form than Wolves in recent weeks and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football match.
