RUFC - Head-to-Head v Preston North End

RUFC - Head-to-Head v Preston North End
Rotherham United make the journey to Deepdale on Saturday for their last away game of the season when they take on Preston North End which will be the fiftieth league game between the two.

Last time the pair met in Preston was in January 2016 when 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 draw in a 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.

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

The game earlier this season at the New York Stadium saw Preston go away with all three points. Jordan Hugill and Callum Robinson put the visitors two-up in less than half-an-hour. Richard Wood halves the deficit on the seventy-first minute but ten minutes later Marnick Vermijl made it three-one to Preston.
