Bitesize Prediction: Preston vs Burnley – 13/09/22

Competition: Championship

Market: Burnley draw no bet

Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

In a real Lancashire derby on Tuesday night, Burnley will make the trip to Deepdale in midweek when they meet a downbeat Preston.

Starting with the hosts, while Preston might still find themselves battling it out in the top-half of the Championship table, they are in the midst of a recent wobble. Last seen earlier in the month when getting hit with a toothless 1-0 loss at home against Birmingham, Ryan Lowe’s men have now managed to win just one of their last six matchups across all formats. With that sluggish run of form stemming all the way back to August 13th, the Whites have gained an unwanted reputation for their struggles in the final third. Tuesday’s hosts have bagged just a single Championship strike from any of their previous five Championship showdowns. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Preston have failed to win or score a single goal in any of their opening four second-tier contests at Deepdale.

As for the visitors, although Burnley might have been last seen on September 2nd playing out a 1-1 draw away at West Brom, the Clarets are enjoying a real purple patch. While there might have been some questions regarding Vincent Kompany’s arrival at Turf Moor this summer, the former Premier League outfit do find the mood in their camp at a real high. Knowing that another victory on Tuesday night could see them break into the top-two, the ex-Manchester City icon has been filled with praise for his side’s start to the 2022/23 campaign. On a run that is highlighted by a thumping 5-1 romp away at Wigan last month, Burnley are unbeaten in each of their last six matchups across all formats. Likewise, suffering just a single domestic defeat since making their Championship return, we’re backing an away draw no bet here.
