Preston North End will face Birmingham City at Deepdale on Saturday in an effort to make it eight games in a row that they haven’t lost in the Championship.
The second-tier team Blues has gone five games without a victory, which has caused the group to drop into the relegation zone.

Tips and Prediction
There has been much discussion on Preston’s remarkable run of five goalless draws in six Championship games, which has temporarily kept the team out of the playoff picture.
Ryan Lowe will argue that, especially with the victory at Coventry City on Wednesday night, the foundation has been laid for a successful season.
Demanded After being brought off the bench as a substitute, Emil Riis Jakobsen scored the game-winning goal, likely convincing the club’s owners to continue turning down offers below their £10 million asking price on deadline day.
Preston now sits in 10th place in the table, just three points behind the leaders, and appears to be in a good position to establish themselves as a force at the right end of the standings.
There will definitely be a break in the streak of shutouts, but there will be a quiet assurance that it can last for at least one more game.
Birmingham has only scored four goals in seven league games, two of which came against Huddersfield Town in their second meeting. Despite the fact that Blues’ two attempts since then have come against Watford and Norwich City, they still have the second-worst attacking record in the division.
Additionally, John Eustace is under more pressure to find a solution while they’re abroad because all of their league goals this season have come at St Andrew’s.
Despite several smart signings made by the Blues leadership, like the purchase of Hannibal Mejbri from Manchester United, Birmingham’s prospects will only improve if they become more proficient in the final third.
Thanks to some eye-catching additions, Birmingham might finally be able to avoid trouble. However, we are unable to wager against Preston, who we believe will secure their second victory and eighth straight shutout.
