Millwall host Preston in a fierce play-off clash as the Lions search to snap their four-game winless run.

Millwall and Preston, who are fifth and seventh respectively, are both on 62 points after 41 games. The gap between them is now six points, meaning there are just two play-off places still to play for. 

When these two sides faced each other in November, Millwall left Lancashire with a 4-2 victory. The teams now find themselves engrossed in a play-off battle. 

The real concern for Millwall is that they have gone goalless in their four games without a win, but this was not through a lack of trying as they had 22 shots and six on target in the 1-0 loss to Hull.

In Preston's last game, they beat Reading 2-1 thanks to a 92nd minute winner from Brad Potts, responding to an 83rd minute goal from the visitors.


The Den is sold out for Saturday (April 15) which promises to be a fantastic atmosphere as Millwall begin a series of must-win games. 

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1):

Goalkeeper: Long

Defenders: Wallace, Cooper, Hutchinson, McNamara

Midfielders: Mitchell and Saville

Forwards: Burke, Flemming, Honeyman

Striker: Bradshaw
