Preston vs Rotherham Predictions

  • Preston North End’s first three games of the Championship season have all seen under 2.5 goals scored.
  • The hosts are yet to concede a goal in the Championship this campaign.
  • Five of the last eight competitive matches played by Rotherham United have seen a maximum of three goals scored.

Solid Preston face tough test

Preston North End maintained their unbeaten start to the Championship season with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Luton Town last time out, and Ryan Lowe’s side are now the only Championship outfit yet to have conceded a goal this season. Their next opponents Rotherham United have only shipped once, however, making a tight affair likely when the Millers visit Deepdale.

Defensive solidity has been a key component of Preston’s game since Ryan Lowe took charge; they’ve conceded just 29 goals in 28 league games under him – of the teams to remain in the Championship between last season and this campaign, only Sheffield United, Blackburn Rovers and Millwall have shipped fewer. Meanwhile, five of the last eight competitive fixtures played at Deepdale have featured under 2.5 goals, with four containing one goal or fewer.

Rotherham United have made an impressive start after promotion, following up a draw at Swansea City with a 4-0 thrashing of Reading after their trip to Coventry City was postponed. Seven League One teams outscored the Millers last term, but their tally of 33 goals conceded was 11 fewer than those shipped by the next-best defence in the third tier, and five of their last eight competitive games have now contained under 2.5 goals.

Tight affair expected at Deepdale

With both Preston and Rotherham unbeaten in all competitions this season and boasting strong defensive records, punters are advised to look to the goals markets, with under 2.5 match goals looking the most prudent play.

Meanwhile, a 1-0 win for Preston, who only lost four of their 23 home Championship games last season – fewer than all but Bournemouth and West Bromwich Albion – looks a solid correct score play.
