Millwall vs Preston team news

Millwall

Millwall slipped to a 2-0 defeat away at QPR last weekend. The home side scored a goal in each half to secure a deserved victory, making it three defeats on the run in all competitions for Joe Edwards' men.

Aidomo Emakhu, Shaun Hutchinson and Ryan Leonard have each been ruled out of the Preston game this weekend through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Šarkić (GK), Bryan, Cooper, Harding, McNamara, Norton-Cuffy, Honeyman, Flemming, Mitchell, Watmore & Nisbet

Preston

Preston took the lead away at Leeds United after just two minutes but ended up narrowly losing the game late on. Will Keane converted for the visitors after good work from Liam Millar but Leeds got back onto level terms just four minutes later and went on to score a winning goal deep into second-half stoppage time.

Preston North End head to The Den on Saturday without any fresh injury concerns or suspended players but haven't beaten Millwall in any of the pair's last nine encounters.

Predicted Lineup: Cornell (GK), Hughes, Lindsay, Storey, Potts, Whiteman, McCann, Frøkjær-Jensen, Keane, Millar & Riis

Player to Watch: Japhet Tanganga

Millwall don't have a lot of goals in them but they do have a strong defensive record this season. The Lions added to their defensive ranks recently, bringing in Japhet Tanganga on loan from Tottenham.

The 24-year-old adds Premier League quality to an already capable defence so Preston are going to find it tough to score against the Lions this weekend. We're backing Tanganga to impress on Saturday, leading by example, and if Millwall can start scoring more goals, we're backing the Londoners to finish comfortably in mid-table this season.
