Rotherham United make the journey to Deepdale tomorrow to take on Preston North End in this Championship clash.

Both teams got a point last time out at Deepdale which was in April 2017. Richie Smallwood put the Millers in front on nine minutes but Stevie May equalised four minutes before half-time to make it one-all.

January 2016 when the pair met in Preston saw an Anthony Andreu goal put the Millers in front on thirty-five minutes. But an Eoin Doyle goal in the second half and an unfortunate own goal in the final minute of the game from Jonson Clarke-Harris gave the hosts a two-one win. The only yellow of the game was shown to Rotherham’s Joe Newell.

The time before that when the sides met at Deepdale was for the League One Play-Off semi-final in May 2014.The game that evening saw the teams draw one-all after Alex Revell had put the visitors in front on twenty-one minutes. Joe Garner equalised four minutes into the second half. The League game earlier in the season in February was also a drawn game which saw six goals. Lee Frecklington opened the scoring for the Millers on seven minutes with an own goal from Tom Clarke four minutes later giving them a two-nil lead before Craig Davies halved the deficit going into half-time. Paul Gallagher scored the equaliser on the hour mark and five minutes later Preston took the lead for the first time in the game from a Joe Garner goal. With it looking like the Millers would be going back to Yorkshire with nothing up popped Frecklington again in the last minute of the match to rescue a point.

Boxing Day 2002 was the last time Rotherham beat Preston on their home territory. Mark Robins and Richie Barker gave the Millers a two-nil win with both goals being scored in the second half.
