      Preston vs Rotherham Predictions


      Preston picked up an excellent 1-0 win at home to high-flying Hull City last time out just as they were beginning to worry that they had slipped back into the sort of form that left them in the relegation zone early on in the campaign. It moved them on to 28 points and they will feel as though they are over half way to survival.

      The Lancashire club are currently 7 points clear of Rotherham, who are only outside the relegation zone on goal difference but have put in some encouraging displays in recent weeks. They also beat Hull at home and thumped Bolton 4-0 before conceding 4 in midweek at Fulham.

      Both these sides are much better on home soil so you have to fancy Preston to get the better of this duel. Preston have only lost 1 of their last 9 league games at Deepdale and have won 3 of the last 5. Rotherham meanwhile have lost 6 of their last 7 away from home and they have conceded twice as many goals as Preston this season.

      Therefore at 4/5 Preston look good for a home win here that could even push them into the top half if many other results go their way.

      There aren’t normally many goals when Preston play though. They’ve kept 9 clean sheets in their last 14 matches but are yet to score more than once at home this season. Therefore any win is likely to be a narrow one and you can back them to secure another 1-0 victory here at 9/2.
