Preview | Millwall v Preston North End

A look ahead to Saturday's Sky Bet Championship clash...

12 January 2018

Millwall play their first home Sky Bet Championship match of 2018 on Saturday afternoon as they take on Preston North End (kick-off 3pm).

The Lilywhites visit south London six places and 10 points above The Lions in the League table, but Neil Harris' side currently boast a six-match unbeaten run in all competitions on their home patch.

Last time out, goals from Aiden O'Brien (2), Ben Thompson and Fred Onyedinma eased Neil Harris' side to a 4-1 Emirates FA Cup Third Round victory over Barnsley, whilst Preston also handed out their own thumping, defeating Wycombe Wanderers 5-1.

The Lions' boss will hope to have Tom Elliott back in the squad for the visit of Alex Neil's side, whilst Byron Webster remains the only long-term absentee.

The two clubs will meet for the 62nd time on Saturday, with Millwall holding the upper hand, having won 28 matches to Preston's 23 historically.

The last game between the pair came in September, as chances were few and far between in a goalless draw at Deepdale.

Liam Feeney was on target the last time Millwall and Preston met at The Den - the winger scored the only goal in an FA Cup Third Round tie; a run that would eventually see The Lions reach the Semi-Finals.
