Match Preview

  • Alex Neil’s Preston North End laid a three-game winless run to rest with victory in a Lancashire derby last time out (2-1) and now seek back-to-back wins for the first time in this calendar year (W2, D1, L5). We should find a winner either way, given that Preston have recorded a joint league-low three draws this season (10.34%).
  • Preston currently endure a three-game winless run at home, failing to score in two of those games. Compounding matters further for Preston is the fact that they have failed to score in 50% of home league games this season – more than all but Derby County.
  • Xisco’s Watford head into this brimming with confidence after they recorded the biggest victory in the Championship so far this term, with a 6-0 thumping last time out. The ‘Hornets’ have recorded five clean sheets from their last seven league matches, and will have kept one in 50% of their league games this season should they manage a shutout here.
  • There is disparity between Watford’s home/away performances, evidenced by the fact that they picked up just 16 of their 51 points away from home (31.37%) whilst scoring a second league-low 0.5 goals per away game. That trend coincides well with the fact that no away side has won the last 11 overall H2Hs, whilst Watford haven’t won here since 1979/80.
  • Players to watch: Ched Evans has been lauded for his workmanlike start to life at Preston – he accounts for their only home league goal across the last 307 minutes of play here. As for Watford, Troy Deeney has contributed to three of the Hertfordshire club’s last four away league strikes (two goals, one assist), with both goals coming from the penalty spot.
  • Hot stat: Each of Preston manager Alex Neil’s four career H2Hs with Watford have ended with a 2+ goal winning margin either way (W2, L2).
