Preston North End vs Blackburn Rovers Prediction

Preston North End will be looking to pick up consecutive wins for the first time this season but they will have their work cut out against a resolute Blackburn side.


The former Premier League champions have been inconsistent this season but on their day, they have what it takes to get a result against any team in the division.

There are likely to be goals at both ends in this match but we expect Preston to do enough to nick a marginal victory.
