Preston North End V Rotherham at Deepdale : Match Preview

27 April 2017

Ben Pearson and Paul Gallagher banned for Preston clash with Rotherham

Preston are without suspended pair Ben Pearson and Paul Gallagher for the visit of Rotherham.

Pearson misses his third game in a row having been booked on 15 occasions this term while Gallagher also serves a one-match ban following his dismissal for deliberate handball against Newcastle.

Alex Baptiste will return from suspension for North End, though, who have lost four successive games since beating Bristol City 5-0 at the start of the month.

Preston captain Tom Clarke (Achilles) and full-back Greg Cunningham (broken leg) are out for the season.

Rotherham will be without top scorer Danny Ward.

The striker, who is expected to be sold in the summer, suffered a hamstring injury in last week's win over Ipswich and his season is over.

Defender Semi Ajayi also picked up a hamstring injury last week but that is less serious and he will be monitored.

The Millers head to Deepdale with the worst away record in the country having picked up just one point from 22 games.
