Bristol City v Preston North End - Team Report

Bristol City leave it late on Nathan Baker and Filip Benkovic

Bristol City’s Nathan Baker and Filip Benkovic will both be assessed ahead of the visit of Preston.

Baker missed Saturday’s defeat to Swansea with a groin problem and remains doubtful, with Benkovic sitting it out after feeling a twinge after playing three days previously at Stoke.

Full-back Pedro Perreira could make his first appearance in a month after coming off the bench at half-time at the weekend to replace Jack Hunt.

Forward Famara Diedhiou may return after being rested to the bench.

With the play-offs now out of reach the pressure is off Preston boss Alex Neil.

He changed formation to 4-2-3-1 to bring in Josh Harrop, Brad Potts, Jayden Stockley and Paul Gallagher for Saturday’s win over Birmingham but could make changes again.

Defender Ben Davies (hamstring) has missed the last two matches with a hamstring injury and is unlikely to be risked with nothing at stake.

The same is likely to apply to midfielder Ben Pearson, who has been sidelined for the same period with a knee problem.

Championship Betting Tips: Bristol City v Preston

Two sides that have fallen out of play-off contention in recent weeks meet in this low-stakes final day fixture as Bristol City host Preston North End.

Preston could finish seventh, depending on results elsewhere, but will be disappointed to have missed out on the play-offs, having spent the majority of the season in the top six, falling behind Cardiff after lockdown. It’s been mixed results for Alex Neil’s Lilywhites, with just two wins, three draws and three defeats from eight matches since the restart.

 

Bristol City had ambitions of the top six during the suspension, but returning to action with four consecutive defeats saw them fall away and cost long-serving coach Lee Johnson his job. Since then they’ve picked up their form somewhat, registering wins over Hull and Middlesbrough before a 1-1 draw with Stoke, but a 1-0 defeat to Swansea at the weekend sees them definitively out of reach of the top six. 

 

This could be a low-scoring match, given Preston’s recent record of keeping things tight on the road. Six of their last seven away matches have featured two goals or fewer. Under 2.5 Goals is priced at 10/11 here.

 

Preston have won on their last five visits down to Ashton Gate, but we recommend backing Bristol City to get a home win here, with some positive performances under caretaker coach Dean Holden. The Robins are priced at 7/4 for a home win here.

     Bristol City 1-1 Preston North End - Match Report

    Bristol City and Preston play out final day draw

    Bristol City’s top scorer Famara Diedhiou notched his 14th goal of the season to rescue a point from a 1-1 Sky Bet Championship draw with Preston at Ashton Gate

    The visitors took a 16th minute lead when Daniel Johnson’s clever back-heel put Sean Maguire through and the striker coolly lifted the ball over Dan Bentley’s despairing dive.

    But City were level two minutes after the break, Diedhiou presented with a simple tap-in after Zak Vyner’s precise through ball had allowed Andreas Weimann to cross from the bye-line.

    Both teams had chances to win it after that, but had to settle for a point each at the end of a campaign that had promised much, yet ultimately ended in disappointment.

    Despite it being the only match in the final round of Championship games with nothing at stake, neither manager was tempted into experimenting with his line-up.

    Preston boss Alex Neil made just one change, selecting Maguire in place of Jayden Stockley, while City caretaker-manager Dean Holden brought in three experienced players in Pedro Pereira, Adam Nagy and Diedhiou.

    The home side made a bright start and Preston goalkeeper Declan Rudd had to make fine fingertip save to tip over Jamie Paterson’s third minute free kick.

    But North End were soon on the attack themselves, Brad Potts having a long-range effort saved and Jordan Storey heading wide when he might have done better.

    There was a let-off for City five minutes after Maguire’s goal when Paul Gallagher unleashed a fierce drive from 25 yards and saw the ball thump against Bentley’s crossbar.

    Preston were the better side for most of the first half and it took a magnificent Bentley save, one-handed diving low to his left, to stop Maguire grabbing his second just before the break.

    But City were galvanised by their early second half goal and Nahki Wells wasted two good chances to put them in front, firing tamely at Rudd and then high and wide from good positions.

    Bentley was brought into action again, palming over a Gallagher shot from 20 yards. Then Maguire delayed his shot too long after a mazy run and saw his effort blocked.

    City’s goalkeeper did well once more to keep out a low drive from substitute Tom Barkhuizen on 71 minutes.

    At the other end substitute Benik Afobe saw a close range effort blocked at the near post before North End threatened again through Potts’ shot from distance which was a fraction too high.

    Barkhuizen fired badly over in stoppage time and Rudd made a fine save from Afobe to ensure the spoils were shared.
