Southampton vs Preston North End: Top free betting tips

Southampton, who went on an unbeaten run of more than twenty matches are now on a run of three defeats in five matches suffering defeats to Bristol City, Hull City and Millwall with wins against West Brom and Birmingham. Russell Martin's men are in fairly unfamiliar territory at the moment having lost three of their previous five matches with their last bad run coming back in September, which was still early in this season. Preston North End are quietly having a very good season with Ryan Lowe's men challenging for a playoff spot in the Championship. Preston are unbeaten in their previous seven matches, winning four of those.
