Preston North End vs Millwall Prediction

On the back of two consecutive victories, Preston North End will head into the weekend with renewed confidence as they look to rise into the top half of the table. However, they face a resurgent Millwall side, who are unbeaten in each of their previous five encounters since 2019, claiming four wins in that time.

We predict Millwall will extend their dominance in this fixture and claim a slender victory.
