Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at Deepdale comes in the form of a draw between Preston North End and Wigan Athletic.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £31 with Betway.
Two sides in search of a return to winning ways are set to lock horns in a Championship clash at Deepdale on Saturday, February 25th.
The matchup in question will see Preston North End act as hosts, in a meeting with Wigan Athletic.
Beginning with the latter, Wigan, of course, currently sit dead bottom of the Championship table.
Owing to a season to forget to date, headlined by wins in just seven of the club’s 32 outings, the Latics have been forced to face up to the very real possibility of their return to England’s 2nd tier lasting just a solitary term.
And yet, despite all of their woes, the last couple of weeks have seen new boss Shaun Maloney’s troops showcase signs of life.
All told, since the beginning of February, Wigan have not slipped to defeat in a single one of their four fixtures.
This stretch includes credible draws with both Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City, as well as a hard-fought downing of relegation rivals Huddersfield Town.
Last time out, meanwhile, the League One holders frustrated in-form Norwich, en route to a goalless stalemate at the DW Stadium.
Maloney and co, as a result, could well fancy their chances of springing a surprise this weekend.
This comes with upcoming hosts Preston North End having found positive results of their own tough to come by of late.
The Lilywhites are currently in the midst of a five-game winless streak across all competitions.
This includes a trio of successive defeats from January leading into February, two of which came in the form of 3-0 drubbings.
To their credit, Ryan Lowe’s men have at least managed to steady the ship over the course of the last couple of weeks, en route to successive draws with Luton Town and Hull City.
But their status as surprise contenders for a promotion playoff berth appears all but dead in the water, with Preston now sitting in a lowly 14th, eight points off the top-six.
And we at 101 do not envision the Lilywhites’ struggles being eased all that much this weekend, either, instead backing Championship basement dwellers Wigan to ultimately emerge from Deepdale with a hard-fought share of the spoils.
