The clash between two teams with the different ambitions in League One: Yeovil vs Preston.
Yeovil stand in the relegation zone and their main goal is to stay in League One, while on the other side the visitors are in the top 3 teams and they have a good chances to promote in Championship.
After 8 matches without win, Yeovil have managed to take all three points away against Notts County 1-2 (Team from the op 6). They desperately need three points in order to move up in the safer zone.
Defender Ben Nugent (15/0 d) is out for this match, while Jordy Hiwula (8/0 f) left the club.
The visitors are standing at the 3rd position. After three lost matches in a row, they beat Bristol City (leader at the table) 0-1 last week.
For this match they miss their top scorer Joe Garner (18/11 f), while Callum Robinson (10/2 f) left the club. Out are also Alan Browne (17/3 m), Andy Little (5/1 f), Bailey Wright (9/1 d) and Jordan Hugill (3/0 f).
All above unavailable players scored more than half goals for Preston this season.
Why this match is interesting?
Take a look at their previous matches:
In the season 2011/12 and 2012/13 they played 3 for 3. I don’t count the match in the FA Cup which Preston won 3-0.
Interesting are their last two matches in League One which were finished 2/1:
Yeovil vs Preston 3-1 (0-1)
Preston vs Yeovil 3-2 (0-1)
Maybe all those info is just a coincidence, but it looks really suspicious. Another interesting fact is that all their matches were finished with at least three goals.
In all their matches, home team was always better.
This is not a sure bet, but I have to try home win and 2/1. Of course, both betting tips for some small stake.
