Millwall and Preston through the yearsIn all competitions, Saturday's match is the 60th meeting between Millwall and Preston North End and it's The Lions who have the upper hand with 27 wins to tomorrow's visitors' 23, and nine ending all-square. Saturday's tie will be the third time the two sides have met in the FA Cup. Back in 1903, Millwall emerged 4-1 victors at the Isle of Dogs but forty-five years later Preston, with Tom Finney and the late great Bill Shankly in their line-up, came away from the old Den 2-1 winners.
