Our prediction for this Championship match:
Brentford do not want to give up on their automatic promotion dream. The Bees outplayed Derby County at the weekend to extend their winning run to seven games, but they are still three points behind top two. Brentford face yet another must-win situation against Preston and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field. Both Olie Watkins and Mohamed Said Benrahma impressed in the triumph over the Rams, meaning that Preston defenders should have the duo at bay.
The Lilywhites, on the other hand, aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive. Preston have been showing signs of improvement of late, but given their anything but good form in the second half of the season, home win should be considered. Seeing that key players Ben Pearson and Ben Davies are likely to miss the Brentford game with injury, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
