Prediction and Preview
- Preston North End manager Alex Neil has overseen the club’s worst start since his 2017 appointment (D1, L1). Notoriously slow Championship starters of late, Preston haven’t won on ‘matchday three’ under Neil’s tenure (D1, L2), although the Scotsman has claimed an average 1.83 points-per-match against Stoke City (W3, D2, L1).
- Deepdale has celebrated just three league wins in 2020 (W3, D2, L6) and witnessed just three shutouts here last season. Moreover, Preston have let Stoke on the scoresheet in 70.0% of their last ten H2Hs here (W7, D1, L2), and as well as 3.70 average match goals scored in such matches, an average of five yellow cards have been shown in their last two home H2Hs.
- Stoke manager Michael O’Neill also has work to do after picking up an average 1.49 point-per-match since his arrival (W15, D7, L13). That said, Stoke’s 2-0 loss last time out bookended a seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions (including an EFL Cup penalty shootout) which produced five shutouts in the process (in 90 minutes: W4, D3).
- Further positives for Stoke lie in the fact that they’ve lost just two of their last eight away league matches (W1, D5, L2) even though the ‘Potters’ have scored over 1.5 Championship away goals just once in this run.
- Players to watch: Preston’s Scott Sinclair has a history with Stoke, and will relish this clash, given his two H2H goals and one assist (W4, D3, L5).
- Stoke’s Steven Fletcher has three H2H goals with two assists, along with two yellow cards (W5, D2, L6). Two of those goals were headers.
- Hot stat: Preston have scored penalties in two of their last three competitive matches, and also did so two home H2Hs ago.
