Our prediction for this Championship match:
After holding Norwich City to a draw at Carrow Road, Preston will be aiming to record their first win of the season when they host Stoke City at their Deepdale. The Lilywhites produced a fine display in their first away games of the season, and, no doubt, the team regained a much-needed confidence. Experienced winger Scott Sinclair, who opened his goal-scoring account at the weekend, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
The Potters, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a surprising loss to Bristol City. Ryan Shawcross, Joe Allen, and Thibaud Verlinden remain in the recovery room for the visitors, and given their anything but good away record in the Championship, we believe that punters can find value in backing the Lilywhites. In their last meeting in the English second tier Preston defeated Stoke 2-0.
