Rotherham United Preview vs Preston North End (A)

Rotherham United will travel to Lancashire to face Preston North End at Deepdale this weekend on the back of a excellent goalless draw against Middlesbrough.

The game at the Riverside against Tony Pulis’ side saw Paul Warne notch 100 games in charge of the Millers and prior to that game his side hadn’t secured their first point on the road in the Sky Bet Championship.

Following that brilliant result their away record this season reads: P 8 W 0 D 1 L 7 and Warne will be hoping his side puts in the same level of performance as they did Tuesday when they face Alex Neil’s Preston on Saturday.

Last Time We Met

The last meeting between the two sides came at Deepdale where the fixture takes place on Saturday back in April 2017 in which the points were shared in a 1-1 draw, Richard Smallwood gave the Millers a ninth minute lead before Stevie May levelled four minutes before the half-time interval and despite both teams going for a winner they couldn’t find the all important goal.

In the last meeting at the AESSEAL New York Stadium saw goals from Jordan Hugill and Callum Robinson give Preston a two goal lead at the break before Richard Wood pulled one back with 19 minutes remaning but a Marnick Vermijl strike with nine minutes left sealed a 3-1 victory for PNE.

The Opposition

Preston head into the game following a 4-3 home win against Brentford on Wednesday evening a result that means Preston have won two of their last six games in all competitions.

In their last two home games Preston have scored eight and conceded just three goals and they are beginning to look very strong in recent games as they are currently on a three match unbeaten run.

Prediction 

This will be a tough game for Rotherham especially with Neil’s men scoring eight goals in their last two games at Deepdale, although, the Millers will be up for the game having taken an excellent point at second-placed Middlesbrough on Tuesday.

Preston North End 3-2 Rotherham United.
