Fulham will welcome Preston North End to Craven Cottage for a matchday 43 fixture in England Championship. The last meeting on 27th November 2021 ended in a 1-1 draw. Both sides have met nine times in the most recent seasons. Fulham has won 5 matches, and Preston North End triumphed in 1. Recent outings average 2.89 goals, while both teams score 89% of the time.
Fulham’s latest fixture against Derby County ended in an away 2-1 loss. The Whites dominated the possession of the ball but didn’t take advantage of it. Fulham set the tone early and scored in the 20 minute.
Preston North End’s recent game against Millwall ended in a home 1-1 draw. They had more ball possession and goal-scoring opportunities but it wasn’t enough to win three points. Preston North End put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 6th minute.
So far, Fulham plays better on the road than at home. They win 2.05 points per away game on average compared to 2.00 points at home. Although Fulham is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 35% home clean sheets.
Preston North End has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. The Invincibles wins 1.14 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Preston North End kept a clean sheet in just 33% of their visits.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. The Whites lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 60% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.
The Lilywhites failed to win in four consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Tuesday and win against The Whites. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost two consecutive games on the road.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Fulham wins on average 2.00 points per home game, compared to 1.14 points per away game for Preston North End. My prediction is Fulham to win.
I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.58 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 49% of Fulham’s home and Preston North End’s away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.
