Rotherham vs Preston
Date: Tuesday, 1 January 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: AESSEAL New York Stadium (Rotherham).
Rotherham fell into the drop zone after losing three on the bounce in Championship. They are winless in last nine league games and will be desperate to bounce back on the first day of the New Year when they play host to Preston North End at AESSEAL New York Stadium. The visitors have not been enjoying the best of campaigns either as they sit just seven points above the Millers in 17th place. They took just one point from last three league affairs, but managed to hold the likes of Aston Villa to a 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon.
The Lilywhites fought hard to earn the mentioned draw against the Lions and they will no doubts head into this in higher spirits. Problem for Alex Neil’s side might be the lack of attacking inspiration when they play away from Deepdale. Preston notched only 9 goals in 12 away games. They lost seven and won only two in the process.
Rotherham vs Preston: Head-to-head
The draw was the most common of outcomes in the history of head to head affairs between these two likes.
It happened on eight occasions in 19 games.
Each of last two H2H outings saw the same 1-1 scoreline, including this term’s tie at Deepdale.
Both teams scored in seven of past eight head to head affairs.
Rotherham vs Preston: Prediction
Rotherham will fancy their chances here thanks to a generally solid home form this season. They lost only 2 of 12 home outings, but also conceded two or more goals in three of past four ties at AESSEAL New York Stadium. Paul Warne’s troops allowed at least a goal in seven of past eight home fixtures meaning we’d not be surprised to see the continuation of the BTTS trend in H2H games between these two sides.
The value is also decent with the Millers not to lose at 1.57 given Preston’s lame form on travels .
