📰 Team News: Preston North End

There is just the sole fitness concern for the Preston North End boss Ryan Lowe to contend with thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Finlay Cross-Adair (traffic accident) will miss out.

We are thinking that The Lilywhites will probably use a 3-4-1-2 formation for the game with Freddie Woodman, Greg Cunningham, Jordan Storey, Liam Lindsay, Liam Millar, Alan Browne, Alistair McCann, Robert Brady, M. Frøkjær-Jensen, Will Keane and Emil Riis Jakobsen.

📰 Team News: Blackburn Rovers

In an otherwise full-strength squad, there is just the one fitness worry for the Blackburn Rovers manager John Eustace to be concerned about. John Buckley (Shoulder injury) won’t be in action.

We are inclined to think that Rovers seem most likely to utilise a 3-4-2-1 formation, choosing Aynsley Pears, Dominic Hyam, Kyle McFadzean, Ben Chrisene, Callum Brittain, Jake Garrett, Sondre Tronstad, Ryan Hedges, Andy Moran, Samuel Szmodics and Sam Gallagher.

✨ Prediction

Our assessment is that Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End are both capable of scoring here.

A close call, and we think a draw is quite likely. That’s why our selection here is for a very even match with a 1-1 score draw at the end of this game.

Our expert partners are tipping over 1.5 goals for this match. Check out their VIP predictions here.
