Preston North End vs Rotherham United: prediction for the EFL Championship Week 39

A warmup for the Lilywhites before the final push!

The soon-to-be relegated Rotherham United will arrive at Deepdale to face off against Preston North End in the EFL Championship Week 39. Match will begin on March 29, at 4 PM CET.

Preston North End

The first ever English football league premier division champions, Preston North End have not been to the topflight since 1961, as they are entrenched in the EFL Championship for the last nine campaigns.

The latest one might become the most successful one, if the Lilywhites keep performing as they have done since February. A victory over Plymouth Argyle in the last round put Preston only five points behind a coveted sixth place with a game to spare. With only one loss in 2024, at Deepdale to Stoke City few weeks ago, North End can still advance to the playoffs, but first they have to get all three points on Friday.

Rotherham United

Rotherham United will go back to League One unless an absolute miracle happens, as the Millers are 19 points away from a safe zone with only eight games remaining on the schedule.

Finally snapping a nine game losing streak, Rotherham still score the least goals together with Sheffield Wednesday but have the most porous defense in the Championship by a considerable margin. A scoreless draw against Huddersfield Town in the last round helped to at least earn a point, but now the visit to Deepdale looms, as the outsiders want to slam the door before the exit.

Prediction ⚽️

Teams played to a “1-1” draw in September, but a lot has changed in 2024, not in favor of the visitors, who will go back to the third division of English football for the first time in three seasons.

Preston North End, however, want to go back to the first, as we will side with the hosts in this one, earning much needed three points with 1.57 odds 🔥.
