Venue: Deepdale (Preston)
The game between Preston North End and Rotherham United looks like a relegation six-pointer but with the home side returning to winning ways it may not finish well for the visitors.
Preston looks to be finally picking up pace following the disastrous start of the campaign. The team still concedes a lot but at least now scores also a lot. If the team sorts out the defensive troubles at least to some extend we may expect them to rise in the table immediately.
Preston made a goal bonanza midweek against Brentford. The home side went ahead 3-0 with just 23 minutes of the game already passed. It looked like a walk in the park but the Bees narrowed the lead to just 1 goal. Still till the end both teams scored each one more goal bringing eventually the score to 4-3 in favour of the home side.
Rotherham United is hanging right above the relegation zone. The Millers are 21st with just a single point separating them from the bottom three. They still have the worst scoring record in the league and can’t seem to be improving in that manner.
On Tuesday Rotherham won a hard earned points at Riverside. Promotion candidates Middlesbrough tried their best to break through the visitors defensive line but the Millers stayed strong to deny them the victory and the top place in the table.
