Rotherham is the only team in the league that is all but sure of dropping out of the Championship as the worst club in the competition this season, but for Preston, there is plenty at stake.

The home team is entering this round 39 match with a five-point disadvantage looking at Norwich who are sixth in the standings. That is the last spot reserved for the promotion playoffs.
