Foot Predictions predicts Tuesday’s championship clash between Preston North End and Watford, including predictions, preview and possible lineups.

Watford hopes to follow the 6-0 victory over Bristol City with an away win in Preston North End in the league on Tuesday night.

The Hornets defeated the Robins on Saturday to remain in fourth place, while Preston defeated the Blackburn Rovers 2-1 on Friday night and moved up to 11th place.


Match analysis

Ismaila Sarr, Will Hughes, Ken Sema and Philip Zinckernagel were all on the scoresheet after a Taylor Moore Own goal with Watford securing their first victory in four games in style against Bristol City.

The result was the biggest margin of victory in a league game since 1982 and meant that they had scored as many goals in one game as in their previous five games.

On the other side of the field, Watford suffered no goals and were the 14th of the season, and only Swansea City suffered fewer goals in the league in 2020-21.

The result maintained the Hornets’ impressive domestic record, but it has been a very different story on the road; he won just three of the 14 away games for the championship this season and scored just seven goals – the lowest in the division, but at the same time, suffered the least number of goals away (nine).

Xisco MunozThe team is six points behind the top two and a win on Tuesday would put them in third place, even for just 24 hours before Swansea played against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday.

Preston’s victory in the Lancashire derby against Blackburn was also his first victory in four matches, achieved through goals in January signings. Greg Cunningham and Liam Lindsay.

Alex NeilThe team of the team had a fantastic performance in Ewood Park and more results of this type can leave them in the dispute for the playoffs.

The Lilywhites, however, have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the league and are currently seven points behind the top six; this week could be crucial in their hopes for the season, as after receiving fourth place Watford, they travel to Cardiff City, which is currently in seventh place.

Only Wycombe Wanderers and Birmingham City had fewer points at home than Preston this season, who won just four league games at Deepdale.

Watford won 4-1 in the reverse game at Vicarage Road in November – their first win over Preston in their last five games.

All news from the teams

Troy Deeney of Watford in action with Nathan Collins of Stoke City in the championship on January 22, 2021

Neil could name a team unchanged after his team’s impressive performance against Blackburn on Friday night; that would mean left-back Andrew Hughes plays as a defender in a defense again, with Scott Sinclair and Jayson Molumby being left on the bench.

The Preston boss confirmed after the game at Ewood Park that Anthony Gordon failed with a “little thing”, leaving Everton’s loan in doubt for Tuesday.

Watford coach Xisco tested a new 4-3-3 system against Bristol City and it worked perfectly, so the Spaniard can also remain unchanged.

There is potential for Troy Deeney to come back after just being fit for the bank on saturday while new hires Dan Gosling and Achraf Lazaar debuted as an alternate, so he can play again.

Possible initial lineup of Preston North End:
Iversen; Storey, Lindsay, Hughes; Browne, Ledson, Whiteman, Cunningham; Johnson; Barkhuizen, Evans

Possible starting lineup for Watford:
Bachmann; Femenia, Troost-Ekong, Sierralta, Masina; Cleverley, Hughes, Chalobah; Sarr, Pedro, Sema

Probability: Preston North End 0-2 Watford

Both clubs will be on the rise after the last wins and now they want to keep in good shape. Watford’s new system looks clinical and, although its poor track record should not be ignored, we think the Hornets will be victorious again.
