On refelction Preston should have made it three wins in a row at Deepdale but poor decision making in the final third and a lack of clinical edge meant they had to settle for a point against Millwall.
The visitors had a remote chance of making the top six with Preston almost expectant of their standard midtable finish. This made for a very open and entertaining game.
North End took the lead early on. A Johnson cross was diverted in by Wallace. If the defender had not put past his own keeper then it would have been a tap in at the back post.
Throughout the game Preston had the better opportunities. They got into some really good attacking positions but a lack of composure meant they were restricted to one goal.
Johnson got forward on numerous occasions but a failure to pick out the right option resulted in a breakdown in the attack. Preston should have scored several.
The away side levelled h first half thanks to a bullet header from Wallace to cancel out his earlier own goal. The visitors had chances as well including a scramble in the second half which resulted in a triple chance with all shots either saved or blocked.
In the end neither side could take their chances and it ended all square. North End now travel to Fulham who are likely to end up top of the pile in the Championship.
