Betting Preview: Preston North End vs Brentford

Leo Vegas Sport UK take a look at tonight's match markets

24 October 2018

On Saturday The Bees huffed and puffed but, in the end, left Griffin Park with a bitter taste of defeat in Thomas Frank's first game in charge.

With the games coming in thick and fast, we've got Brentford priced at 7/1 to bounce back with a victory in both halves at Preston at LeoVegas SPORT.

The frustrating defeat to Bristol saw Brentford play with their usual hunger and appetite to score, managing seven first half chances. It was somehow goalless at the interval despite several good opportunities, and then disaster struck as Chris Mepham saw red after two bookings in quick succession.

Playing with 10 men for over half an hour was a tall order as Bristol grew into the game, finding space within the numerical advantage, but new manager Frank will have learned many new things about his side. They fought to the very end, even striking the post moments before Eliasson's winner, but on some afternoons, the ball just won't go in.

Neal Maupay remains our best value to grab a goal at Preston and is priced at 4/1 to score first while Romaine Sawyers, who is yet to score this season, is priced at 15/2 to score last, after coming agonisingly close to the opener on Saturday.

Bristol became the first side to escape Griffin Park with three points this season, and the players will do everything in their power to ensure a victory up north. We saw attacking football and fans can expect the usual swash-buckling style as Frank pushes his men further up the pitch. Brentford's form against Preston makes for pleasant reading: they Bees have won seven of their last nine league matches, Frank and his players need look no further than last year's 3-2 away victory for inspiration.

Leo's Tip: Daniel Bentley returned to the starting line up after missing two games, and an away victory to nil is priced at 18/5

Leo's Prediction: Preston North End 0-2 Brentford, priced at 23/2

Goalscorer: Neal Maupay is priced at 4/1 to score first
