Lions boss Neil Harris says the Lilywhitea re very ‘Millwall-like’ in their approach and has been impressed with what he has seen so far.
The former Millwall striker led his side to a home victory over then-unbeaten league leaders Leeds United last weekend and feels his side need the same level of performance when they arrive at PR1 on Saturday.
“We have to put in that level of performance again on Saturday because having watched Preston three times in the last 24 hours they are one hell of a side,” he told the media prior to the trip north.
“They play very Millwall-like, they’re very workmanlike and aggressive, a very big side.
“We have to make sure that we are as 100 per cent as focused on Saturday as we have been in the past.”
He will still be without striker Lee Gregory for the game, the former FC Halifax Town hit man, it suspended after a sending off last week; but Fred Onyedinma has impressed in his absence, partnership the experienced Steve Morison in the Millwall front line.
Other than Gregory, there are unlikely to be any difficult decisions for the manager; the performance against Leeds likely to earn a ‘same again’ approach in terms of team selection at Deepdale.
