Norwich City 7/10 to beat Preston in Friday’s Championship battle
Market: Norwich City win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Two sides who find the mood in their camps at a polar opposite, Norwich will make the trip to a struggling Preston on Friday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been a hugely worrying run of form, Preston have freefallen their way down the Championship table. In their 38 second-tier matchups so far this season, they have recorded 13 wins, five draws and 20 defeats, scoring 39 and conceding 49 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 44, The Whites open this weekend’s return to action sat way down in 16th and six points adrift of finding a route into the top-half of the table. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 1-0 defeat against Luton on home soil, Preston have lost their last three Championship matchups on the spin and have collected just a single point from their last five contests. It should also be noted that Friday’s hosts have recorded just a single victory from their last eight straight fixtures on home soil.
As for the visitors, while Norwich would have been disappointed to have only collected a single point last time out, they are storming towards an immediate Premier League return. In their 38 Championship contests so far this season, they have recorded 25 wins, eight draws and just five defeats, scoring 56 and conceding 27 in return. Along with opening this weekend’s fixtures holding a commanding eight-point buffer at the top of the table, it should also be noted that Norwich hold the second-best defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Friday’s hosts are unbeaten in each of their last 10 Championship matchups, winning nine of those fixtures. Given the huge gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing an away victory for the high-flyers this week.
