Who’s Available?

Jack Whatmough will be absent through injury again, however he is back training with the group and should be able to return the following weekend at home to Ipswich Town. Ched Evans will also miss out as he looks to strengthen his hamstrings.

Skipper Alan Browne could become the 13th player to reach 400 appearances for PNE this weekend, and would be the second youngest to reach this tally.

Opposition Focus


Millwall will be looking to get back on track following three successive defeats, which were preceded by three victories in a row.

Those wins came as part of a five-match unbeaten run which looked to be the turning point for new head coach Joe Edwards, who was appointed in November, following a mixed start to life at The Den.

Edwards – formerly of Chelsea, Everton and England – was left disappointed with their previous outing in a derby day defeat to Queens Park Rangers, saying they weren’t good enough in “pretty much every department”.

A Recent Clash

In the reverse fixture in October 2023, Mads Frøkjær’s early goal was cancelled out by Zian Flemming as the points were shared at Deepdale.

Match Report: Millwall 1 PNE 1

27 January 2024

Brad Potts’ second goal of the season earned Preston North End a point on the road against Millwall.

The hosts went ahead just five minutes in through Zian Flemming, but Potts cancelled the opener out in the 33rd minute after being found in space by Mads Frøkjær.

Both sides had chances to go and win the game, with Potts having an opportunity to score with one of the last kicks, but the competitive clash ended 1-1.

PNE, who made two changes from last weekend’s late defeat to Leeds United, were thwarted by a familiar face inside five minutes as Flemming headed home on the end of George Honeyman’s cross to score his sixth goal against the Lilywhites.

Captain for the day, Ben Whiteman – who signed a new long-term deal with the club on Friday – took aim from distance after some space opened up a few minutes later, but his strike was wide of goal.

Liam Lindsay soon had to come up with a crucial block to get in the way of an improvised flick from Kevin Nisbet, which looked destined for the bottom corner.

The action seemed to settle down after that eighth-minute chance, and it wasn’t until the half-hour mark when Freddie Woodman was required again, saving a tame effort from Billy Mitchell.

PNE then drew level in the 33rd minute when Frøkjær played a defence-splitting ball through for Potts to run on to, and he finished well past Matija Šarkić to level matters.


That goal really brought North End to life as they went on to create a number of opportunities before the break. The first of which involved Frøkjær again who found Liam Millar, and the Canadian managed to get a shot away, although Šarkić was equal to it.

Šarkić came up with a better stop in the 42nd minute to throw himself in front of a close-range Keane effort, after the ball fell his way from an Andrew Hughes header.

While Millwall had to weather that storm, it was North End who had to make it through the early stages of the second half level, and they did.

Whiteman came up with a huge block on the line to stop Wes Harding’s header, while Woodman in goal had to make saves to deny the likes of Romain Esse, Joe Bryan and George Saville.

History was made in the 73rd minute when Alan Browne became only the 13th player to reach 400 appearances for PNE – the second-youngest man to do so.


There was certainly a bite in the game as it approached its final stages and PNE could have earned all three points with four minutes left on the clock when the ball fell to Keane, although his right-footed effort went a few inches wide.

Robbie Brady had a cross sent wide by Milutin Osmajić in the 89th minute, before his dangerous cross in the second minute of additional time found Potts at the far post, and he was agonisingly denied by Šarkić, meaning the points were shared.

Millwall line-up: Šarkić; Tanganga, Harding, Cooper; Norton-Cuffy, Honeyman (De Norre, 58), Mitchell (Saville, 58), Bryan; Longman (Esse, 45), Nisbet (Obafemi, 77); Flemming. Subs not used: Białkowski, McNamara, Wallace, Campbell, Grant.

PNE line-up: Woodman; Storey, Lindsay, Hughes; Potts, Whiteman, Ledson (Browne, 73), Millar (Brady, 63); Frøkjær (Holmes, 90+4); Keane, Riis (Osmajić, 63). Subs not used: Cornell, Cunningham, Bauer, Stewart, Woodburn.

Referee: Mr J Busby.

Attendance: 14,744 (853 PNE pre-sales).
