Preston will likely need to win all five of their final Championship matches to stand a chance of making the playoffs this season, but it is certainly not impossible for them to finish in the top six.
Ryan Lowe‘s side lost back-to-back matches against Luton Town and Derby County either side of the international break, which appeared to end their top-six hopes, but they have responded impressively, beating Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers in their last two games to move onto 57 points.
The Lilywhites are eight points behind sixth-placed Sheffield United on the same number of matches (41), and they have some tough games to finish the campaign, taking on Fulham, Blackburn Rovers, Barnsley and Middlesbrough in their final four fixtures of the regular Championship season.
Lowe’s team have only lost three of their 20 home league games this term and will be eyeing a third straight league success in front of their own supporters on Friday, which would lead them nicely into the clash with league leaders Fulham on April 19.
Preston have actually lost four of their last five Championship games with Millwall, though, including a 2-0 defeat in the corresponding match during the 2020-21 campaign.
Preston will again be without the services of Ryan Ledson and Tom Barkhuizen, but head coach Lowe said during his pre-match press conference that the home side are otherwise in good shape.
Brad Potts and Josh Earl are both back in contention after missing out against QPR through illness, while Ched Evans has been back in training with the club after recovering from a toe problem.
A late decision will be made on the involvement of Emil Riis, though, after the striker limped out of the contest with QPR due to a hamstring problem.
As for Millwall, Mason Bennett remains unavailable for selection through injury, but skipper Shaun Hutchinson has recently returned to training after a calf issue and could be in the squad.
Head coach Rowett is likely to resist the temptation to bring Hutchinson back into the starting side this weekend, though, meaning that the team could be unchanged from the one that started against Barnsley.
Benik Afobe and Oliver Burke were both on the scoresheet last time out and should continue as the front two with support from Jed Wallace.
