Our prediction for this Championship match:
Barnsley will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Wycombe and Sheffield Wednesday when they take on Preston at their Oakwell. The Tykes have been showing signs of improvement of late, and they must be high on spirits ahead of the midweek clash. Cauley Woodrow, who scored his seventh goal of the season in the 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
The Lilywhites, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 3-0 loss to Luton Town. Preston experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the Kenilworth Road clash, and given Barnsley’s fine form, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Barnsley are eyeing their first win over Preston since September, 2016, and we predict that they are going to put an end to the negative trend.
