Rotherham United vs Preston North End Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This New Year’s Day fixture (15:00) is an important one at the bottom as it features the side in 22nd at home to the team in 17th. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Rotherham are now without a win in nine and have lost three straight down 1-0 at Bristol City last time out. Their miserable day was compounded by having Billy Jones and Richard Towell dismissed.

Preston saw their own winless run stretched to three through they stopped a two-game losing run with a 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa. They need an own-goal to get on the score sheet but they were good value for the point.

The reverse fixture came on October 27th at Deepdale and resulted in a 1-1 draw with Tom Barkhuizen netting for North-End and Michael Smith for the Millers.  The Lilywhites were unlucky to take all three points as they were the stronger side.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Preston might be a popular bet given how much Rotherham are struggling that being said through they have so many injury worries I would worry where the goals would come from and would avoid the match markets.

The Millers have scored just one in their last three, the Lilywhites two in three (although one of these was an own-goal) so I am surprised to see no in the both teams to score market as the outsider.  

If they are any goals at all then they are unlikely to come early and I will take the game not to have a goal before 30:00.

 

NO in the both teams to score market

NO goal before 30:00

Rotherham United Preview

The Millers have taken just two points from their last six which has seen them drop down to 22nd in the table. They need help at both ends of the pitch in January but it is unlikely to be forthcoming with funds tight.

At the New York Stadium, the Yorkshire outfit have drawn six of their last eight with the other two in this sequence being a victory and a defeat. Their last four at their own place have seen a goal in the first ten minutes.

Rotherham have netted just once in their last three which means just one of their last three have seen both teams score. Six of their last eight in the league have gone over 2.5 goals with five going over 3.5.

 

Rotherham United Team News

Kyle Vassell (groin) is a doubt while Darren Potter (ankle) is a long-term absentee. Billy Jones and Richard Towell will both miss out through suspension.

Preston North End Preview

The Lilywhites have picked up just one point from their last three through it is just two defeats in 15. They sit 17th and a clean bill of health would be their main hope for 2019 after an injury hit 2018.

Away from Deepdale, it has been a mixed bag for the Lancashire outfit with two wins, two defeats and three draws in their last seven. Each of their last three on the road have been goalless going into the break.

Each of the last two and five of the last eight Preston have played in the league have seen both teams score. Just one of their last three and four of their last 11 have gone over 2.5 goals.

 

Preston North End Team News

Ben Davies (unknown), Josh Earl (thigh), Callum Robinson, Lewis Moult, Brandon Barker, Sean Maguire (all hamstring), Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop (both knee) are all expected to miss out.  Ben Pearson will miss the third of his three-game suspension.
