Gray to score and Burnley to win at 11/4 (max stake £20)
It’s time for the Championship’s traditional serving of a Friday football fixture, as promotion hopefuls Burnley pit their wits against Preston North End in a Deepdale duel.
So, Coral have selected a stupendous bet of the day for this crunch clash, with enhanced match special odds of 11/4 for top marksman Andre Gray to score and Burnley to best Preston (max stake £20).
Want to know why you should back Sean Dyche’s side and leading Championship striker Gray to overcome PNE in this all-Lancashire encounter? Read on…
Burnley have bettered recent Lancashire battles
In recent red rose derby rumbles, the Clarets have pipped Preston to the points and plaudits more often than not, as they boast an excellent record of three victories in their last four from this fixture.
As if that wasn’t enough to convince that Burnley hold the edge in this Northwest contest, determined Dyche has propelled his side to second place in the top-tier, with the team still in contention for the title and automatic promotion to the Premier League.
The Turf Moor team are also undefeated in the league since December, a sublime streak of 20 matches including nine nifty away games. Having also held Championship leaders Middlesbrough last time out, the Clarets should be a truly tricky proposition for Preston.
Gray awarded for goals galore
Recently crowned Championship Player of the Year, goal gobbler Gray should be buoyed and on hand to help his club fire past PNE and keep up the title chase.
Gray’s goals have been a crucial factor in Clarets’ success, as the 24-year-old is currently leading marksman in the league with 24 plus eight assists.
A whopping 22 of those strikes have been for Burnley, though Gray also grabbed two in as many matches for former team Brentford before his switch.
The in-form attacker will have the Lilywhites next in his lethal sights, having hit six in his last 10 for the ambitious Clarets. So that 11/4 match special (max stake £20) for Gray to score and Burnley win is incredibly tempting!
