- Preston’s last seven Championship games have all produced under 2.5 goals.
- Under 2.5 goals have also been scored in five of Sheffield Wednesday’s last six league starts.
- There have been less than three goals scored in all but five of the hosts’ 24 Championship games this season
- November’s reverse fixture was a scrappy affair, as Preston ran out narrow 1-0 winners at Deepdale.
Sides to Share the Points in Low Scoring Clash
A Sheffield Wednesday side who have won their last three at Hillsborough take on a Preston outfit who have won two of their last three away trips this Saturday and we could well see both teams cancel each other out in South Yorkshire.
The bookies can’t split the pair ahead of this contest and their stance is as expected, with the hosts resurgent under caretaker boss Neil Thompson and building momentum at Hillsborough, while Preston have taken the majority of their points on the road this season with seven wins posted in 13.
November’s reverse clash went the way of the Lilywhites in a scrappy 1-0 affair and we’re not anticipating too much goalmouth action here. Preston’s last seven league games have produced under 2.5 goals, with the same applying to five of Wednesday’s last six and all but five of the Owls’ 24 league games overall this season.
With those stats in mind and both sides staking a fair claim for the points, we’re backing under 2.5 goals this Saturday alongside a 1-1 correct score prediction.
