England Championship - Preston North End vs Sheffield United Preview


Sheffield United will visit Deepdale Stadium.

Preston North End
Preston North End prepare for this game following on from a 1-1 Championship drawn result versus Birmingham City. It has been seldom in recent times that Preston North End have kept a clean sheet. The facts show that Preston North End have been scored against in 6 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 7 goals during that time.

Sheffield United
Since suffering a loss in their previous game against Derby County in Championship action, Sheffield United and their fans will hope to get a better result this time. The trend of at least one team drawing a blank in games involving Sheffield United has been noticeable of late. Checking on their last six outings shows that it’s happened 5 times. During those clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal tally of 7 while Sheffield United have scored 7. That trend won’t necessarily be continued into this match, though. Coming into this clash, Sheffield United have not been beaten in their last 3 away league matches.

Looking at these two, we feel that Sheffield United and Preston North End should both get enough opportunities to score, although it’s hard to separate the two. It could well end in a draw. We’re therefore tipping a very close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the end of the 90.
