Sunderland vs Preston North End Prediction and Betting Tips | October 1, 2022

Reading v Sunderland - Sky Bet Championship
Sunderland haven't beaten Preston in nearly two decades.

Sunderland will host Preston North End at the Stadium of Light in the EFL Championship on Saturday (October 1), looking to return to winning ways.

The Black Cats could only manage a 2-2 draw to Watford in their last game before the international break, courtesy of a late strike from Jewison Bennette. With 15 points from 10 games, Tony Mowbray's side are fifth in the standings and well in contention for back-to-back promotions.

Preston, meanwhile, are down in 15th with 12 points, having won just twice all season. The Lilywhites picked up their first win of the season on matchday three against Luton Town before needing another three outings to register their second.

Sunderland vs Preston North End Prediction

Sunderland haven't beaten Preston in nearly two decades, and despite the stark difference in their current standings, there could be a surprise in store.

The Lilywhites have been the weakest team offensively but also the meanest in the division, keeping seven clean sheets in ten games.

The Black Cats will be wary of that and look to come flying out of the blocks, but they don't have the attacking might to overcome a defence like Preston's. A draw seems like the most probable outcome. The game might as well end goalless.
