Preston North End vs Southampton predictions and top betting tips
Southampton makes the long journey from the South Coast to Lancashire to face Preston North End in another match from the EFL Championship.
Total match goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that this encounter between Preston North End and Southampton will see 2.5 goals or more scored. Southampton is managed by Russell Martin who is well known for having exciting attacking teams but teams who are also capable of conceding multiple goals and his time with Southampton is no different, so far Southampton are averaging just under two goals conceded per ninety minutes so far this season and we expect Preston, despite the bad form they are in, to capitalise on Southampton's defensive issues.
Match result prediction: Draw
For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that this encounter will end as a draw. Both teams are fairly close in the table and are separated by just one place and also by one point. Southampton were on a bad run of form hitting a run of four defeats in a row but are now on a run of three wins and one draw while Preston is the team in bad form but with Preston having home advantage and being hard to break down, we expect an entertaining game but the teams will share the points.
Correct score prediction: 2-2 Draw
For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that this encounter between Preston North End and Southampton will finish as a 2-2 draw. Preston picked up two draws in their previous five matches, both were draws with goals scored which were either side of three defeats in a row which followed six wins in a row. It is fair to say this Preston side is very hit and miss but we can see Preston frustrating this Southampton side.

Preston North End started this season in excellent form by winning six and drawing one of their first seven matches but have since picked up two draws and three defeats from their previous five which leaves Preston in fourth place in the Championship on twenty-one points.
Southampton suffered relegation from the Premier League last season and are hoping they bounce back at the first attempt. So far Southampton finds themselves in fifth position having won six of their opening twelve matches, drawing two and losing the other four.
