Our prediction for this Championship match:
Thanks to Aleksandar Mitrovic’s late goal Fulham defeated Swansea City in their last league match. The Serbia international did well to make up for a missed penalty with the late winner, and, no doubt, all eyes will be on the former Newcastle United man when Fulham and Preston face each other on Matchday 36. The Cottagers are eyeing automatic promotion to the Premier League, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at Preston.
The Lilywhites, on the other hand, suffered a 2-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion in their last league match. Considering that first-choice full-back Darnell Fisher misses the game through suspension, we are tempted to put our money on the capital club. In the first half of the season Preston recorded a 2-1 win over Fulham, meaning that Scott Parker’s troops are determined to get their revenge on the Lilywhites.
