A Look At Our Hosts

Sat fifth in the table and level on points with PNE – but with a superior goal difference – Millwall will be looking to keep hold of their Play-Off spot this weekend.

Gary Rowett’s side have spent the majority of their season in and around the top six, and they’ll want to get back on track on Saturday, having gone four without a win or scoring.

In their most recent outing – a defeat to Hull City – the manager described his side’s performance as “excellent”, but was left ruing missed opportunities.

One To Watch

A man who PNE know all too well from this season’s reverse fixture, Zian Flemming has been Millwall’s main man up top this campaign.

The powerful Dutch attacker, who signed from Fortuna Sittard in the summer, has had a fantastic first season in England, with arguably his best outing being a hat-trick performance at Deepdale in November 2022.

Flemming hasn’t managed to add to his goal tally since the beginning of March, but 13 in his first campaign in England is certainly an impressive return – especially considering he mainly operates behind the striker.

Match Officials

Preston North End will be refereed by Tim Robinson for the first time this season on Saturday afternoon.

Robinson, who has taken charge of two Premier League matches this campaign, was the main official for PNE on four occasions last season.

In total this season, Robinson has shown 139 yellow cards and six reds in 36 matches.
