Preston North End vs Blackburn Rovers: Top free betting tips

Blackburn Rovers will come into this Lancashire derby not confident of a win due to their bad form as opposed to Preston's fairly ok form. Preston has won all of their previous three matches against Ipswich Town, Cardiff City and Middlesbrough while Blackburn has won just one of their previous ten Championship matches, that one win came against Stoke City. Blackburn have also lost seven of their previous ten games, drawing just twice. Blackburn will be desperate to avoid defeat against local rivals Preston to ensure that they do not get dragged even further into a relegation battle.
