Fresh off the back of ending their four-game winless run, Preston North End play host to Bristol City at the Deepdale Stadium on Saturday.

The visitors, on the other hand, have failed to win any of their last seven games on the road in all competitions and will be looking to end this dry spell.

Preston North End returned to winning ways on Wednesday as they saw off West Bromwich Albion 2-0 away from home.

Prior to that, Ryan Lowe’s men were on a four-game winless run, picking up two draws and losing two, including a 2-1 defeat against Cardiff City on January 9 which saw them bow out of the FA Cup.

With 36 points from 27 games, Preston North End are currently 13th in the EFL Championship, level on points with Sheffield United and Blackpool.

Meanwhile, Bristol City failed to return to winning ways last time out as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Luton Town.

Nigel Pearson’s men have now managed just one win from their last four games, losing three games in that time.

With 33 points from 28 games, Bristol City are currently 16th on the log, level on points with Millwall.
