Preston VS Derby match analysis

Very interesting odds for Over 2,5 here, if we consider some fact. First: both teams are in needs of a win. Preston is playing a poor season and is last in table, also if lost last match 3-1 against M'Boro after one win and two draws. So, they needs a win to leave the last position in table. Derby is in freefall: five consecutive matches losses, but they remain in middle table position, with 30 points, only nine points to playoffs positions. So, they needs a win to regain moral and don't lose hopes to be involved in promotion battle. Second consideration: both teams are overish teams if we see statistic:Preston has the second worst home defence with other two teams and the worst total defence with Leicester. Derby has 21 goals against in 12 away matches and receives at least two goals from seven consecutive matches. So , two weak defences that usually aren't supported by great attacks - both teams have only 12 goals scored at home and away respectively - but that in the needs of a win and against a poor defense could make some goals each other. Third consideration is just the poor consistence of the two defences that for at least one of the two teams, Derby, will be further weakened by absence of Dean Moxey (def. 19atts. 2goals) suspended and teh doubt of left-back Gareth Roberts (8atts+3) that will force trainer to reshuffle his defence. So, for all these reasons i think that target of three goals in this match should be very possible
