Preston North End travel to the capital knowing a win would put them within sight of safety.Advertisement
It was a very Good Friday for North End yesterday with Scunthorpe, Doncaster and Crystal Palace all dropping points.
That means that a PNE win would put them just two points off 21st placed Palace.
But the Lilywhites know that a win will be difficult against this season’s surprise package.
Many expected Millwall to be involved in the fight to avoid relegation but instead they are just four points off the playoff places.
The Lions have kept 19 clean sheets this season and have been superb at home winning 11 of their 21 games at the Den.
When the sides met earlier in the season the game finished 0-0 but North End will be hoping for more with time running out.
Although North End kept a clean sheet in that game they have only kept four all season and just one of them has come away from Deepdale.
Sean St Ledger, David Gray and Amine Linganzi are still unavailable for PNE but Leon Cort could return after eight games out.
Millwall look short of firepower up front. Top scorer Steve Morison and club legend Neil Harris are both suspended for the game and fellow forward Kevin Lisbie is injured.
