Recent respective form guides

Bristol City may have lost only 1 of their last six home games, but the other 5 have resulted in drawn games. The Robins's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Preston N.E.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. North End have conceded 9 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Bristol City's 32 points from 24 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Preston N.E. find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 29 points from their 23 matches.
