Prediction: Preston North End vs Peterborough United – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Preston North End will try to finish with their first points of the championship season when greeting them Peterborough United Saturday afternoon to Deepdale.

The Lilywhites have lost all three games so far this season and are bottom of the league, while Peterborough is four points better after a positive return to the league.


Prediction for this match

After Preston had finished the last season strong with four wins in a row, the hope was high to be able to maintain this momentum until 2021/22.

After a heavy 1: 4 home defeat against Hull City on the first day of the game, they were followed by 2: 1 and 0: 1 away in Reading and Huddersfield Town.

Bottom of the table after three games and with the worst goal difference in the league, Frankie McAvoy‘s side know that they urgently need to stop the rot.

North End hasn’t lost their first four games of a league season since 1956/57 when they finished third in the top division, but they face a tricky trial this weekend.

Peterborough lost 3-0 to Luton Town in their first game at this level after an eight-year absence but has since recovered well.

Aside from a 4-0 loss to Plymouth Argyle in the EFL Cup – a competition that is at the bottom of United’s priority list – the Posh have defeated Derby County and drew against Cardiff City.

The 2-1 win against the Rams lifted a lot of weight Darren Ferguson‘s shoulders, although he would have been disappointed if he hadn’t taken all three points against the Bluebirds.

Peterborough led the game by a couple of goals, less than 10 minutes left, just for Aden Flint showing up twice late and getting a draw for Cardiff.

The Posh will see this as another chance to scoop some points on the board but history is not on their side as they have lost five of their last six games to Preston.

Ched Evans on duty for Preston North End in February 2021

Siriki Dembele was featured in Peterborough’s starting XI against Cardiff and has been on the top scorer list, meaning he has scored in his last three league games for the club.

Jonson Clarke-Harris set up both goals mid-week and Ferguson is unlikely to make any changes in that division Jack Marriott is one of those who are pushing for a recall.

captain Mark Beevers hobbled away with an hour against Cardiff, with Ethan Hamilton used in its place so that United may be forced to make at least one change here.

As for Preston, McAvoy’s decision to change his side against Huddersfield didn’t exactly pay off Josh Earl, Ben Whiteman, Brad Potts and Ched Evans is brought in.

Only after the deficit in the 74th minute did McAvoy introduce Emil Riis Jakobsen, Scott Sinclair and Sean Maguirewho compete for the start each weekend.

The home side could go with a slightly different setup here, however Tom Barkhuizen will not be part of the squad, was again excluded.

Preston North End possible starting line-up:
Rudd; Hughes, Lindsay, floor; Berg, Whiteman, Ledson, Cunningham; Johnson; Jakobsen, Sinclair

Peterborough United possible starting line-up:
Pym; Kent, Thompson, Knight; Ward, Hamilton, Burrows, Norburn, Butler; Clarke-Harris, Dembele

Probability: Preston North End 2-1 Peterborough United

Peterborough can be happy with last week’s results, even if they should have kept up against Cardiff last time.

Preston’s start to the 2021-22 season, on the other hand, has been pretty terrible, but Peterborough isn’t the best of travelers and we can see the hosts here finally hit the bull’s eye.
