Southampton vs. Preston North End – match preview
September 20, 2011

After a 2-0 win over Charlton last week, North End face an in-form Southampton side at St. Mary’s tomorrow night. Preston are on something of a run themselves, but with 12 back-to-back home wins, the host’s stats make for some impressive reading.



Brentford vs. Preston North End – Match Preview
September 16, 2011

After their midweek League Cup triumph over Charlton, Preston North End return to League One action this weekend with two games to catch up on. Uwe Rösler’s Brentford currently sit three points ahead of North End in the league having played two more games, but the Lilywhites now have an opportunity to leapfrog the London club, and could potentially climb as high as 3rd, dependent on other results.

Fellow promotion hopefuls Brentford are enjoying a fine run of form as of late, with 3 wins from their last 4 games. After a 1-1 draw with Colchester in midweek, The Bees will be looking to get back to winning ways in front of the home crowd, but it’ll be no easy task; North End have won their last 5 games in a row and show no signs of slowing.
