Millwall vs Preston
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 2 March 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: The Den.
The Lions have been on a pretty consistent run lately, barring some tough match-ups against some of the best teams in the competition. As of now, they have 43 points on the board, and are placed 12th in the table.
However, the two teams just above them in standings have 45 points each, and either of them have tough games this weekend.
Thus, Gary Rowett’s men have a great opportunity to climb two spots higher this match-day. Note that they also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
Meanwhile, the Lilywhites are struggling to post points on the board, and they are conceding in plenty. They are also on the road, and have been a failure there all through this campaign.
By the looks of things, expect Millwall to be the better team on the pitch this Tuesday.

Rowett’s men lost 2-1 on the road the last match-day, against Barnsley. In the meantime, Alex Neil’s men won 3-0 at home the past game week, against Huddersfield.
Going on, the Lions were unbeaten in eight of their preceding nine overall fixtures. They had scored two or more goals in three of their last six overall games, and had kept clean sheets in two of their former four matches.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in nine of their last twelve overall fixtures, and had lost seven of these games.
In addition, Rowett’s men also have a superb h2h record against this foe over the years.
Taking into account these observations, expect Millwall to dominate proceedings this Tuesday at the Den.
