Preston North End produced another plucky away performance last time out, claiming their third win on the road in as many games when they beat Huddersfield Town 2-1.
However, they currently sit 12th after failing to win any of their home games in the league so will look to claim their first at Deepdale when they take on Millwall.
The Lions slipped out of the playoff places after drawing 1-1 at home to Barnsley at the weekend but will still be pleased with their start, tallying 12 points in their first seven fixtures.
A win could see them jump back into the top six and Preston will know what to expect on Wednesday evening against a team in decent form.
Preston North End vs Millwall Head-to-Head
Preston lost both league fixtures to Millwall last campaign, losing 1-0 in both games.
This encounter will be their seventh straight match-up in the Championship.
The pair have met 20 times since 2000, Preston winning seven and Millwall winning eight.
In 67 previous games between the two clubs, Preston have won on 26 occasions, Millwall have triumphed 30 times and there have been 11 draws.
