Preston North End vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides in the bottom-half of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Preston got back to winning ways at the weekend with an impressive 1-0 road success at Nottingham Forest. Lewis Moult got the only goal in a match where the two sides had little to separate them but that finish.

Millwall made it back-to-back draws as they were held to a 2-2 draw at home to Hull in their previous game. Lee Gregory and Aiden O’Brien got their goals and the result was a fair reflection of a close battle.

These two sides drew both meetings last season with it ending 1-1 at the Den and goalless at Deepdale. It means that the London outfit are unbeaten in their last five meetings with the Lancashire team.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Preston are the side most likely to win this match but the odds reflect this and I could not be backing the hosts at this price. The visitors offer no appeal either so I would like to side markets to find the value.

Both teams score around 60% of their goals in the second-half so backing the second 45 minutes to be the highest scoring and have a small interest on both teams to net during this period,

Preston North End Preview

It is just one defeat in 11 for the Lilywhites who despite a blip against Birmingham continue to climb the table. They sit in 15th in the Championship table and have put seven points between themselves and the relegation spots.

At Deepdale, it is now five without defeat with them coming out on top in three of these matches. The Lancashire outfit now face back-to-back home matches with teams beneath them in the table.

Just one of the last three and two of the last seven Preston league fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.  Two of the last four and six of their last nine have seen both teams find the back of the net.

 

Preston North End Team News

Ben Pearson (thigh), Tom Clarke (broken nose), Callum Robinson, Sean Maguire (both hamstring), Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop (both knee) are all expected to miss out.

Millwall Preview

The Lions are now six without a victory though three of their previous four have finished all-square. They sit in 21st place which has them one place and one point above the bottom three.

Away from the Den, they are without a win all season and have picked up just three points from their ten on the road. Just one of the next six the London side play on their travels is against a team in the bottom eight.

Each of the last two and four of the last five Millwall have played have seen both teams score. Nine of their last 13 in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals though just two of the last five in the league.

 

Millwall Team News

Shaun Williams (unknown) is a doubt while Tom Bradshaw (knee) will miss the rest of the season.
