Preston vs Millwall Prediction
Preston extended their unbeaten streak to six matches on the trot, last week, after they got the better of Stoke on the road with a 2-0 scorecard. Admirably, the hosts have garnered fourteen points from a possible eighteen in the process as well.
As of now, the home team have climbed up to the sixth spot on the ladder, with a seven-point advantage over their foes for the weekend.
On the other hand, Millwall have been alternating between draws and defeats in their past four games. In fact, the visitors have just one win to boast of, from their last six clashes in the Championship.
To make matters worse, Millwall are winless in their previous four outings. To be specific, the guests have not had a taste of success on the road since their 1-0 victory over Derby, back in December.
In sharp contrast, Preston are sporting the best home statistics on the ladder. Impressively, they have stumbled just thrice here this season. They have not been at the losing end in any of their past two clashes either.
Taking into account that Millwall have not secured the bragging rights in their previous five visits to this stadium, Preston are sizing up to be the favorites in this one.
Be that as it may, the visiting contingent have salvaged a point in three of their past five trips here. Given that the hosts were also held to a draw in their most recent home clash with Swansea, back a Draw no bet, just to be on the safer side.
Furthermore, Millwall have looked solid at back in their outings as of late. The fact that they have kept a clean sheet in half of their previous eight clashes on the road certainly stands as a testament to it.
Moreover, all but one of their previous five h2h meetings here have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts. Considering that the reverse fixture of this matchup was also a low scoring affair, expect goals to be hard to come by this Saturday too.
