Preston – Stoke Match Preview

  • Preston North End are enjoying an eight-match unbeaten run in all competitions (W4, D4), a streak that was greatly needed after opening their campaign with three successive Championship losses. Winning three of the last five H2H encounters (D1, L1) will give them a further boost too as they look to end their four-game drawing streak in league action, and a win here would likely take them into the top half.
  • Besides a freak 4-1 defeat to Hull City on the opening day of the season, Preston have made Deepdale a fortress in all competitions (W3, D1), something that will be needed for any playoff push. That home form has been aided by early breakthroughs as Preston have now scored inside the opening 30 minutes in all five fixtures played here this season.
  • Fresh from knocking Premier League Watford out of the EFL Cup in midweek, Stoke City continued their fine Championship form with a 2-0 triumph over lowly Hull City at the weekend. The ‘Potters’ are now in their fourth straight season at this level, and are currently enjoying their best start to a campaign since relegation, although losing their last two away league clashes will surely keep them on their toes here.
  • The history books certainly favour Michael O’Neill’s side as since 1999, Stoke have returned home from this stadium with seven wins from ten clashes (D1, L2). Additionally, six of their previous seven away triumphs in all competitions saw them beat a -1 handicap showing that when they’re on song on the road, the visitors are hard to stop!
  • Players to watch: Preston may have failed to score in both H2Hs with Stoke last season but new signing Connor Wickham has three goals in his last four appearances against them. Midfielder Sam Clucas remains Stoke’s lucky charm, as he’s netted a second-half goal in their two competitive away wins this season.
  • Hot stat: Preston are yet to score a Championship home goal after the 60th minute this season.
