Preston North End vs Millwall Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game features two sides in opposite halves of the Championship table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Preston continued their strong start to the season with a 3-1 victory at Birmingham last weekend. A three goal 11-minute spell saw them take all three points with a goal each from Daniel Johnson, Jordan Hugill and Tom Barkhuizen. Millwall will be full of confidence after they handed league leaders Leeds their first defeat of the season in a 1-0 result. The scoreline did not flatter the London side who were the much better team and took all three points through a second-half Aiden O’Brien goal. These two sides have not been in the same league 2010/11 and last met in 2013 in the FA Cup so the head-to-head record should be taken with caution. For what it is worth the Lions are unbeaten in the last three meetings between the pair.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Preston might be a popular bet given that they beat Leeds last week and while I am full of admiration for the way they have started the season I don’t think they can be backed at such short odds at home. Millwall seemed to have found a shape in recent weeks that makes them difficult to beat and they could claim a point here. In a game that is difficult to find an angle on I think a couple of anytime goal scorer bets look the best way to play this. Josh Harrop is finding new freedom in his role just off the striker and although he has just one goal this season more should follow soon. Another goalscorer I like the look of is George Saville who is ranked 12th highest in the division for shots on target yet has just two goals to show for it this fortune must turn around soon.

Preston North End Preview

The loss of Simon Grayson had many worried for the future of Preston but Alex Neil has done a good job at keeping what worked last season while trying to tweak it to his own image. The result has been that North-End sit in fourth place with 15 points from eight games and are unbeaten in five. At home, it has been three victories and one draw which is a great return from their four fixtures. The Lancashire outfit have kept clean-sheets in three of these games and conceded just once in total. 66% of their goals have come in the second-half and 55% in the final 30 minutes of the tie. Their average time of the first goal scored is the 43rd minute and the average time of the first goal conceded is the 39th minute.

Millwall Preview

The Lions will be happy with the start they have made to the season with nine points from eight games and they sit comfortably in 16th. They have now lost just one of their last five and that was a narrow loss at high-flying Wolves. On the road, they have struggled with two defeats and two draws from four. Their last away game ended in a 2-2 draw but the three previous ones produced a total of just two goals neither of which were scored by Millwall. Jed Wallace is their leading league scorer this season with three goals two of which have come in the last four. The average time of the first goal scored is the 28th minute and the average time of the first goal conceded is the 38th minute.
