Preston to make it three wins in three

For our first prediction for this match we are backing Preston to come and take all three points. They've drawn a lot of games this season as they've been solid defensively but also struggled for goals; that's changed in the last couple of games though as they've managed to find the net and to win back to back league matches for the first time. Bristol City meanwhile have been in awful form of late with four defeats and no win in their last five games. On top of that, Bristol City have a pretty ropey head to head record against Preston; they've only won one of the last 10 clashes between the pair!

Someone will blank

Our next prediction for this Championship match up is that at least one of the sides will fail to score. We've already touched on the fact Preston are a dogged side that don't give much away and, barring their last match against Norwich, they don't score many either hence three of their last four matches have seen at least one side fail to hit the net. As for Bristol City each of their last two matches have featured a clean sheet for at least one side. Finally, we go back to the head to head record where three of the last four meetings have ended with a ‘nil' in the final score line.

Can Preston break into the top six?

Preston's back to back wins leading into this match have propelled them from mid table right up into the top six mix as they sit just two points off Swansea in sixth. For Bristol City, that little stat might serve as inspiration. At present, they're closer nearer relegation than the playoffs but a couple of good results can really transform the standings this early in the season. Those things considered give both sides plenty of motivation to go and win the game; let's see what happens.

Bristol City had been going well until the last handful of games. They'll be desperate to get the likes of Matty James back on the field but, for now, they'll be going without him. Tomas Kalas and Kal Naismith join him on the sidelines.

Bristol City Predicted lineup – Bentley, Vyner, King, Atkinson, Sykes, Scott, Massengo, Dasilva, Conway, Weimann

Preston will be delighted with their last couple of results as they've translated performances into results. With a fully fit squad to choose from here, they'll be confident of making it three wins on the spin.

Preston Predicted lineup – Woodman, Storey, Cunningham, Lindsay, Browne, McCann, Whiteman, Fernandez, Brady, Maguire, Jakobsen
