Preston North End form
Preston North End's performance during the 2022-23 season has been disappointing, especially with their 1-1 draw against Rotherham United. Despite a six-match winning streak, they had to come from behind to secure a draw against one of the weaker teams in the division. However, their overall start has been impressive, earning 20 points from eight games and holding a seven-point lead over seventh place. Their upcoming matches against Leicester City and Ipswich Town will be crucial, making this current fixture even more important. While Preston's manager, Ryan Lowe, may emphasize the long-term perspective, he recognizes the significance of their results leading up to the international break.
Preston North End Predicted Lineup
The possible starting lineup for Preston North End includes Woodman, Storey, Lindsay, Hughes, Potts, McCann, Ledson, Brady, Holmes, Browne, and Osmajic
West Bromwich Albion form
On the other hand, West Bromwich Albion's head coach, Carlos Corberan, has managed his team well despite off-the-field issues threatening to disrupt their season. With the possibility of a player fire-sale if a new owner isn't found by January, Corberan's main focus is to establish a comfortable lead over the bottom three teams. Presently, they are five points clear, despite only earning two victories in eight games and winning just once in their last six matches. Additionally, West Brom has yet to secure an away win this season, although their three consecutive draws on the road offer some positives.
West Bromwich Albion Predicted Lineup
West Bromwich Albion's possible starting lineup consists of Palmer, Ajayi, Bartley, Pieters, Phillips, Molumby, Mowatt, Townsend, Wallace, Diangana, and Thomas-Asante
