Our prediction for this Championship match:
After sharing the spoils with Millwall in London, Brentford will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Championship when they take on Preston on Saturday afternoon. The Bees were more than unfortunate not to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League last term, and, as a result, key attacker Ollie Watkins left the club. The other star player Mohamed Benrahma is still part of the club, and he made his debut in the 2020/21 season in the 1-1 draw with Millwall.
Seeing that the Algeria midfielder is likely to start against Preston, we believe that home win should be considered. The Lilywhites, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team losing to the likes of Swansea and Stoke, while sharing the spoils with Norwich City. Considering that Preston forward Tom Barkhuizen is sidelined through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
