Sunderland Preston North End Tips, Predictions and Odds

Sunderland host Preston North End in matchday 38 of the Championship on Saturday 17th March, 3:00pm at Stadium of Light. The hosts currently sit in 24th place in the table having lost against Queens Park Rangers 1-0 last time out, while the visitors are in 9th after their 1-2 loss against Fulham.

Sunderland appear increasingly likely to be playing their football in League One next season, not helped by a recent run of four defeats in six home matches, and our KickOff predictive algorithm makes a Preston side who are now unbeaten in ten Championship trips the 49% favourites to collect all three points in this encounter.

Last Season's Score
David Nugent scored the only goal of the game when the Lilywhites last visited the Stadium of Light all the way back in December 2006, with a repeat of that 0-1 result given a 12% chance of happening this time around.

Team News For Sunderland
Jason Steele serves a one-match suspension following his sending off at Loftus Road last weekend, so the experienced Lee Camp should take his place between the sticks.

Team News For Preston North End
A tight hamstring forced Greg Cunningham off against Fulham, with Paul Gallagher remaining on the bench in the same game with a similar problem, so Alex Neil is sweating on the fitness of both men ahead of this match.

First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
Sean Maguire (18% chance) has been in sensational form since returning from a lengthy injury-enforced absence, helping himself to four goals in three appearances, so it is hard to look too far beyond the in-form forward in the first scorer market.

This clash will take place at the Stadium of Light at 3:00pm on Saturday 17th March. Highlights will be shown on Football on 5: The Championship later that evening at 9:00pm.
