Rotherham vs Preston: Top free betting tips
Standing on the verge of the relegation zone, Rotherham United are set to go up against Preston North End in the EFL Championship on Saturday, 23 September. The Lilywhites will be committed to adding strength to their top position in Round 8 of the Championship at New York Stadium.
Match result prediction: Preston to win
Rotherham United have emerged victorious three times in the last five meetings with Preston North End. However, the Millers have been dismal recently by losing four of the previous five league outings. On the other hand, Preston has been incredible with six consecutive victories in the EFL Championship before this game. The Lilywhite have also gone undefeated in all three road fixtures this season, winning two of them. Given all these facts, we set Preston North End as our favourites to take the lead in this game.
Both teams to score prediction: YesGoals
Getting through a brilliant winning streak, Preston will be optimistic to create scoring chances in this game. However, the Lilywhites have claimed just one clean sheet in the last four games in the Championship. On the other hand, Rotherham United have also rattled the net in the previous four games at New York Stadium consecutively. Additionally, four of the last five H2Hs of these two sides have finished with both teams on the scoring side. Therefore, a BTTS outcome will be our second pick for this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Preston
Rotherham United have scored more than once in only one of the previous five fixtures in the EFL Championship and EFL Cup. Nevertheless, Preston has scored two goals in each of their last four games. The Lilywhites have also conceded just one goal in three games during the same course. Additionally, the Millers have allowed multiple goals at the back in four of the last five matches in the EFL Championship. Based on these statistics, we predict a 1-2 margin for Preston in this encounter.
Rotherham vs Preston: Form, recent games, and news
Rotherham United visited Millwall in the last game and tasted their fifth consecutive away defeat with a 3-0 scoreline. Ryan Longman and Zian Flemming rattled the net 60 minutes and Tom Bradshaw extended the dominance of Millwall in stoppage time. The team’s readiness also faced a setback with six players missing the game due to injuries.
Preston came from behind against Birmingham City to retain their winning streak with a 2-1 lead in the last game. Birmingham’s Bielik scored an own goal in the 51st minute and Milutin Osmajic gave Preston the lead in the 67th minute. Manager Ryan Lowe will have to contend with three fitness concerns as he focuses on strengthening their position at the top of the table.
