Preston – Brentford Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

The Bees are fresh from an excellent 3-0 win over Derby, but will that momentum be enough to see them win this clash? Preston are up to seventh in the Championship following their impressive run of results, but will they claim another victory this weekend? The hosts are going up against Brentford, a side on a high who have issues on the road.

Neal Maupay has netted in each of his last three and seven of his last eight home starts. Each of the last two and three of the last five visitors here have failed to net. At Griffin Park, the Bees have won their last two which includes a 2-0 defeat of Leeds when they last played which was perhaps their best performance of the season.

Tom is Nathan Clarkes brother and his main position is centre back. However, the Preston footballer is capable of playing as both left and right back as well. Tom Clarke played for England U18 and U19 teams and he scored one goal for the national team at international youth level. On 5 August, 2013 Clarke scored the winner for Preston against Blackpool and it has to be noted that it was his only second appearance for the club.

Preston are level on points with teams who sit in top six in the standings, meaning that a win over Brentford would see them climb to the play-offs berth. Saturdays football game at Deepdale pits together Preston and Brentford, the two teams who are eyeing promotion to the Premier League. The Lilywhites made a slow start to the season, but they have been raising their form week by week and, as a result, they are undefeated in previous four games in all competitions.

The Bees, on the other hand, did well to put an end to their three-game winless run in the league, with the team rolling over Derby County 3-0. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Jamaica international Daniel Johnson, who has netted four goals in the 2019/2020 Championship campaign so far this season. Nonetheless, seeing that Brentford are not regarded as good travelers, home win should be considered.

Brentford vs Preston Stats

The visitors have been involved in low-scoring matches but that three goal victory over Derby showed the forward line is finally clicking so backing over 2.5 goals as the main bet and a value bet on over 3.5 looks the way forward. A better bet is to take the game to have goals as all three at Deepdale this campaign have produced ten combined. Bookmakers can not split the pair and it is easy to see why as both should finish close to each other in the table come the end of the season.

Brentford had a week off last time out as they were scheduled to face Bolton but the fixture was cancelled as Wanderers players refused to play over not being paid. It leaves the London side in 15th place on 58 points. It has been a disappointing campaign for them first getting off to a slow start, then losing manager Dean Smith before embarking on a losing run under Thomas Frank though they are showing signs of promise to end the campaign.

Preston seemed to be coasting to victory last time out as they were leading Sheff Wednesday 3-1 with 28 minutes remaining but ended up having to settle for a 3-3 draw. It has been a solid if anunspectacular season for them as they sit 12th going into their final match of the campaign. The result means North-End have now won one just one of their last seven.
