Preston North End vs Rotherham United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

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

Preston are now four games unbeaten following a 4-3 home victory over Brentford in midweek. Callum Robinson grabbed a brace while Tom Barkhuizen and Alan Browne got one goal each to give them all three points.

Rotherham are now seven without a win though they will be pleased with a point at Middlesbrough in a goalless draw. The Millers can probably consider themselves a little lucky with the point in a game Boro were the better side in but failed to net.

These two were in different divisions last season so you have to go back to the 2016/17 for their previous meetings. North-End are unbeaten in their four previous meetings with United.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with Preston being favourites but I am a long way from thinking the side is good enough to be backed at such short odds. I would lean more towards Rotherham but their poor away form does not encourage a bet.

In four of their five home matches this season North-End have netted in the first-half so I like a bet on them to be ahead at half-time here. In addition, have an anytime goalscorer play on Alan Browne who has two in his last three at Deepdale.

Preston North End Preview

The Lilywhites after a poor run have taken eight points from their last four fixtures and have climbed to 19th. Alex Neil is seeing the treatment room empty and will hope his team can start to climb the table.

At Deepdale, it is two straight victories though it is just three from seven when looking at the season so far. The Lancashire outfit have scored over 1.5 goals in each of their last six at their own ground and on two occasions over 3.5.

Nine of the 14 Preston have played in the Championship this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Five of the last six and seven of their last nine have seen both teams find the back of the net.

 

Preston North End Team News

Michael Crowe (unknown), and Calum Woods hamstring) are doubts. Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop (both cruciate) are long-term absentees.

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers are winless in seven but they have drawn four of their last five to keep themselves out of the bottom three. They sit in 21st place and manager Paul Warne knows that keeping them up is all the board are asking of him.

Away from the New York Stadium, they are still seeking their first win but picked up their first point in midweek. The Yorkshire outfit have found the back of the net on just two occasions this season on their travels.

Ten of the 14 Rotherham have played this season have gone under 2.5 goals with seven going under 1.5. Three of their last five have seen both teams net but the five before that did not.

 

Rotherham United Team News

Billy Jones (hamstring) and Jon Taylor (knee) are doubts while Darren Potter (Achilles) and Sean Raggett (back) will not be back before Christmas.
