The last time Preston played Hull, they booked three points to their account and look well primed to secure another win on Saturday.

Preston vs Hull Preview

Preston won four of their last six Championship matches on home soil, while drawing once and losing once. They conceded eight and scored 11 goals.

Finishing somewhere in mid-table will probably be satisfactory for Preston, who aim to keep the relegation line at a distance in the Championship.

In their last six Championship away matches, Hull have three wins, they've drawn one and lost one two. They scored seven while also conceding seven times. They also experienced one draw and two defeats.

While safety is the foremost priority for Hull, a top half finish is the ultimate dream for this term.

Hull and Preston seem to find it tough getting their defensively lines in order, as they both concede too many goals. We hope the trend continues on Saturday, as we aim for both teams to score.
