Preston to Win

With four wins in the last five games, Preston North End has been in great form recently and they have now put themselves just two points behind the first team in the playoffs.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Preston – Reading Preview: Top News, Recent Form, and Probable Lineups

You can find the most recent news about these two teams ahead of their duel right here, including the possible Preston vs Reading lineups:

Preston

With four wins, one draw, and one loss in the last six Championship rounds, Preston has been in good form recently and they have managed to get up to the eighth place in the standings. They are also just two points behind the playoff zone at the moment, so there is chance that they could reach the playoffs if they can keep their good run going.

When it comes to team news, Greg Cunningham remains out with an injury, along with Ched Evans who suffered a serious neck injury and will also likely be out for the season.

Preston Predicted Lineup:

Woodman – Storey, Lindsay, Hughes – Whiteman, Potts, Onomah, Johnson, Brady – Cannon, Parrott

Reading

With three losses and three draws in the last six matches, Reading struggled recently in Championship and unfortunatly for them, this is not their first bad stretch of the season. So, with this latest poor run, Reading find themselves in the relegation zone. On the bright side, they are just one point behind the first team out of the relegation zone, so they still have a good chance to stay up, if they can get some points in the remaining matches.

Meanwhile, Reading has nine players on their injury list right now, so they are in a tough spot when it comes to team's fitness as well.

Reading Predicted Lineup:

Lumley – Mbengue, Holmes, Sarr – Meite, Casadei, Hendrick, Fornah, Yiadom – Joao, Carroll

Player to Watch – Thomas Cannon

Since we expect Preston to win this game, our player to watch comes from this side and it is Thoams Cannon, the team's young forward on loan from Everton.

The Irishman has done well this season for Preston as he managed to score six goals in fourteen games in Championship, so Reading will have to be wary of him.
