Bristol City vs. Preston North End Match Analysis and Prediction

Mid-table battle in the Championship is becoming real for different sides on the season finale. This will become true as mid-table sides Bristol City and Preston North End take on each other. The match schedules at the Ashton Gate Stadium with kickoff at 9:30 pm.

Both sides were in control and contention for the playoffs in the Championship before the three-month interruption. However, the restart has hit the teams hard as they fall down to mid-table runs in the rankings.
