Our prediction for this Championship match:
After suffering a 2-1 loss to Barnsley in their last league fixtures, Preston will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Championship when they host the Robins at their Deepdale on Matchday 20. The Lilywhites did well to crush Middlesbrough 3-0 in their last home game in the English second tier, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Bristol City.
The Robins, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back defeats to Rotherham United and Millwall. Bristol City do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of Friday’s clash, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Preston’s party at Deepdale. The likes of Bauer, Bodin, Moult, and Pearson are all sidelined through injuries for the hosts, while Baker, Mawson, Sessegnon, Wals, Weimann, and Williams are injured to the Robins. Diedhiou is banned.
