Why Preston will win

Preston at  one point, looked as though they could push for the play-offs, but no wins in their final six games of the season put an end to that. With a player turnover, new manager, new coaching staff and a brand new campaign – it’s a fresh start for Preston.

Why Sheffield Wednesday will win

Sheffield Wednesday suffered just one defeat in the pre-season friendly games, as the team laid a solid foundation for the upcoming campaign. The sole defeat was against Rangers in the recent friendly and on the bright side, they’ve kept their squad together, the manager remains the same and they should be right in the promotion picture again.

Preston vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

The visitors, Wednesday have got a bit better at playing on the road over the past 12 months and can usually count on their defence to keep things tight. Their final 5 away games last season produced 3 wins and 2 draws and they’ve also gone unbeaten on the road during pre-season.

Our prediction: an away win for Sheffield Wednesday.
