Preston vs. Rotherham – Preview and Prediction

Preston vs. Rotherham – Swansea City will face Millwall at the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday after picking up their first victory of the new Championship season.

Gary Rowett’s club hasn’t won a league game away from home in seven games. Swansea City beat Blackpool 1-0 on Saturday to start the 2022–23 season.

Jerry Yates’ first-half penalty attempt was saved by the visitors’ determined goalkeeper Andre Fisher, but in the 87th minute, substitute Olivier Ntcham scored to hand the Seasiders their second defeat of the year.

Prior to that, Russell Martin’s team began the season without a victory in any of their first three games in any competition, and on August 9, their EFL Cup run came to an abrupt end when they were defeated by Oxford United on penalties.

Swansea City will attempt to win two straight games for the first time since April, but they will first need to win at home, where they have lost twice and drawn three times in their last five league games there.

In other news, Millwall put on a superb display in their thrilling 3-2 win over Coventry City at the Den last Saturday after falling down by two goals.

Kyle McFadzean and Matt Godden’s goals put Rowett’s team behind, but they scored three unanswered goals through Jake Cooper, George Honeyman, and George Savillle to turn the game around.

Prior to that, Millwall was eliminated from the EFL Cup after losing 1-0 to Cambridge United on August 2 and then suffering a 2-0 loss to Sheffield United after four draws.

Since a 1-0 triumph at Reading on March 5, the Lions have gone seven straight away games without a league victory, dropping three and drawing four.

The challenge of a rival team that has gone unbeaten in nine of their last ten meetings since 2010—winning six games and drawing three others—stands in the way of Millwall’s attempts to halt this losing streak.

Preston vs. Rotherham – Betting Analysis

Alongside 23-year-old Joel Piroe, Irish attacker Michael Obafemi, who was involved in 15 goals last season, could lead the attack at the other end of the field.

Ntcham, a 26-year-old forward, might be given a spot in the starting lineup after a game-winning performance the previous time they played.

Swansea City will take the field without Liam Walsh due to an injury; Walsh has been sidelined since March due to an Achilles tendon tear.

For Millwall, Mason Bennett, 26, is a major question mark for the game on Tuesday after suffering a game-ending injury on Saturday in the first 12 minutes.

Jake Cooper, a young English player, may now have the opportunity to make the starting lineup with the seasoned assault of Honeyman and Benik Afobe, 29.

The offensive tandem of Tom Bradshaw and Zian Flemming, who are currently recovering from separate knee and muscle ailments, will also not be available to Rowett.
