Preston North End to score first

Our first tip backs Preston to score the first goal. An impressive start to the new season of 0-0 draw in a row is proof that they are defensively prepared for the clash. On the other hand, Huddersfield lost their first two games and defensive challenges will be unforgiving in this cup fixture.

Preston North to win

A strong defence is why we expect the visitors to win. They won the previous EFL Cup encounter with Huddersfield with a clean sheet in a game that ended 2-0.  With their strong defence, away win looks more attractive and a for a better price.

Huddersfield Town vs Preston North End Match Preview

The only previous encounter in the EFL Cup fixture between these teams ended in favour of then hosts, Preston. But that was nearly 10 years ago in August 2012. This second match-up will be hosted by Huddersfield, a match that the hosts hope will be a revenge opportunity, having lost 2-0 defeat in the previous Cup encounter.

However, there is a lot of work to do for Huddersfiled. The hosts have kicked off the new Championship season with back to back losses of 1-0 and 2-1. They didn’t have a good pre-season either as defensive mishaps kept being a thorny issue. Notably, Huddersfiled have defeated Preston only 4 times in past 13 meetings. There were only 2 draws in those encounters while Preston North End bagged 7 wins.

Back to back draws of 0-0 in the first two games in the new season should hand Preston another advantage over the hosts. Preston may have had mixed fortunes in pre-season but they have kicked off the new season with two clean sheets. The strong defence should be important for the visitors in their quest to keep dominating Huddersfield. Most importantly, Preston hope to make it back to back clean sheet wins in two EFL encounters with Huddersfield.
