Preston v Chesterfield predictions and weekend football betting tips for the second leg of the League One play-off on Sunday from our football tipster.
Preston emerged with the vital lead from the Proact Stadium on Thursday night as an early Jermaine Beckford goal was enough to give them the advantage heading back to Deepdale.
Chesterfield looked overwrought by the occasion on Thursday for the first half hour, but then gradually got into the game and missed some vital chances which could come back to haunt them.
Preston could also have added to their margin of victory, but they will feel the momentum is definitely with them and their fans will be counting their pennies to buy their Wembley tickets.
Simon Grayson has been here before, he knows how to get out of League One and he will be determined to end the abysmal record that the Lancashire side possess in the end of the season knock out competition. They will also feel aggrieved after losing out on the automatic promotion places and having to watch MK Dons make it into the Championship at their expense and that should spur them on.
Paul Cook did an excellent job in steering his unfancied side into the play-off berth and chasing just a single goal, they will feel they’re still in this competition. They could turn it around, but it is an uphill task and even if they aren’t able to turn around the deficit they can hold their heads up high and with a bit of strengthening can go one better next season.
It’s Preston who get my vote here and they will have to hope the nerves don’t creep in again like they did against Colchester on the final day of the season.
Our football tipsters’ first Preston v Chesterfield betting tip is for Preston to win at 5/6 with William Hill.
Chesterfield need to get a goal, there is no option not to attack the Lilywhites on Sunday lunchtime and they could get picked off if they throw too many men forward. They do possess plenty of talent including Sam Clucas and cultured Gary Roberts and do have a goalscoring threat. Many people thought they would struggle once Eoin Doyle headed West to Cardiff, but they have remained as prolific as ever and they should score here because if they don’t, there is no way they can get to Wembley.
The second Preston v Chesterfield prediction is for Both Teams to Score and the best odds are 10/11 at Betfred.
I tipped him in the first leg, but he wasn’t able to provide for us, I will prevail and stick with Daniel Johnson to score anytime for Preston. Since he signed from Villa, he has had a decent goalscoring return and is constant menace to the Chesterfield defence.
Finally, our third weekend tip for Preston v Chesterfield is for Daniel Johnson to score anytime at 10/3 with Boylesports.
