Preliminary Review and Match Prediction for Birmingham vs Preston

Birmingham

It hasn’t been a fine season for Birmingham so far as they suffered their fourth defeat in a row at the hands of Bristol City by 2-4 last time out. The Blues are currently lying in the 18th position with 32 points and must be careful as they are just six points above the relegation zone.

Preston

With the 0-4 home defeat against Norwich City, Preston suffered their fourth home defeat in a row. The Lilywhites have lost five of their last eight matches and with 37 points are in the 13th position on the Championship table.

On a positive note though, Preston’s 65% of points have been earned from their away games. Similarly, the Liliwhites scored 67% of their goals while playing on the road. Moreover, manager Ryan Lowe’s team didn’t concede a goal in seven of their 13 trips.
