Our prediction for this Championship match:
Birmingham City will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Middlesbrough when they host Preston at their St. Andrew’s Stadium on Matchday 25. The Blues are seven points clear of bottom three, and, no doubt, they are eager to escape the danger zone. The Lilywhites, on the other hand, head into the match following back-to-back losses to Nottingham Forest and Bristol City.
Preston have been struggling in front of goal of late, and seeing that Birmingham City regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out. Boyd-Munce, Jeacock, and McEachran are all sidelined with injuries, while Gardner is a major doubt. The likes of Bauer, Bodin, Moult, and Rudd are injured for the visitors, whereas Pearson will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
