Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Championship clash between Bournemouth and Preston North End, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.
Sports Mole

Bournemouth will host Preston North End on Tuesday night as the high-flying Cherries hope to get back to winning ways, following their disappointing 2-2 draw against Rotherham United on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Preston will be eager to bounce back from their 4-1 loss to Watford, with Alex Neil's side currently sitting in 18th place as they head into their next Championship clash.

Match preview

Since being relegated from the Premier League, Bournemouth have suffered just one defeat in the Championship, putting them one point behind current leaders Norwich City in the table.

The Canaries' 1-1 draw against Coventry City gave Jason Tindall's men the perfect opportunity to go top in matchday 14, but Bournemouth were only able to pick up a point against newly-promoted Rotherham.

The Cherries were awarded a penalty within the first 20 minutes of the game, before Freddie Ladapo scored a brace against the promotion-chasing side. Just moments later, Dominic Solanke managed to secure an equaliser at the New York stadium, resulting in an entertaining game between the two teams.

However, it is worth noting that Bournemouth's home form this season has been particularly impressive - recording three wins in their previous four home games, including a dramatic 4-2 comeback against Reading.

A victory against upcoming opponents Preston could see them overtake Norwich in the table, with Daniel Farke's men set to face Luton Town the following day.

Preston, on the other hand, have registered five wins this season, but their further eight losses means they currently find themselves struggling in the bottom half of the table.

As previously mentioned, their latest league result ended in a 4-1 defeat away at Watford, with Tom Barkhuizen the only player getting on the scoresheet for the Lilywhites, after his shot was heavily deflected in the early moments of the first half.

This means that Preston are the only Championship team to have scored in every away game this campaign - a promising stat as Neil's side head into one of their toughest fixtures of the season.

In terms of their head to head record, Bournemouth hold the upper hand - registering 14 wins against Preston's 10, with the two sides meeting 29 times in the past.

However, their previous encounter was back in September 2016, when the Lilywhites claimed a 3-2 win over their opponents in the League Cup, featuring a hat-trick from Simon Makienok.

Team News

Fortunately for Cherries fans, Tindall should have plenty of options to choose from for Tuesday's home match against Preston, with the English coach able to field a strong squad.

Joshua King could return to the starting XI following his period of isolation, after the striker tested positive for COVID-19.

However, the hosts could still be without Jack Stacey, who picked up a knee injury against Reading earlier this month.

For Preston, their injury concerns continue, with the likes of Billy Bodin, Andrew Hughes and Josh Harrop all set to miss the upcoming game, along with long-term absentee Louis Moult.

Joe Rafferty is suspended for the match following his straight red in their 3-0 loss against Blackburn Rovers.

Bournemouth possible starting lineup:
Begovic; Smith, Mepham, Cook, Kelly; Lerma, Billing, Gosling; Brooks, King, Stanislas

Preston North End possible starting lineup:
Rudd; Storey, Bauer, Davies; Pearson; Sinclair, Barkhuizen, Potts, Johnson; Jakobsen, Maguire

We say: Bournemouth 3-1 Preston North End

Bournemouth are the clear favourites on Tuesday, with the Cherries currently on superb form as they head into matchday 15 of the Championship. However, Preston should get a least one past their opponents, having scored in all of their away games so far.
