Plymouth v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday's game.

6 April 2018

Posh head to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday to face one of the division's in-form teams.

Peterborough United make the long journey to Home Park to face Plymouth Argyle in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) and with just six games remaining, every point could be crucial between now and the end of the campaign.

Posh go into the clash off the back of a 2-0 victory over local rivals Northampton Town at the ABAX Stadium while Argyle, who have surged up the league table since the turn of the year, were without a fixture on Easter Monday as their game with Scunthorpe United was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The two sides faced each other at the ABAX Stadium on the opening day of the season with Posh running out 2-1 winners thanks to goals from Junior Morias and an own goal securing all three points.

TEAM NEWS

Posh could welcome Ryan Tafazolli back into the squad after the defender missed the game on Monday with a hamstring injury. He will travel down to Plymouth with the squad and manager Steve Evans will make a decision on his involvement on Saturday. Alex Penny is injured and won’t feature for Posh.

Plymouth boss Derek Adams is expected to field an unchanged squad for Saturday's League One home clash with Peterborough. Midfielder Antoni Sarcevic is not yet ready to return as he continues to recover from a groin injury. Forward Simon Church is still battling a hip complaint and defender Gary Miller has so far been unable to shake off a hamstring issue.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Plymouth have been on a wonderful run since the turn of the year and they are very much in the mix for the play-offs. We will travel down and prepare right for the game. We have four away games remaining and this is the first of them and we will try and come away with something from the game.”

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“It looks like it could be three places up for grabs and with probably six teams going for them. I think that’s the way it’s going to look between now and the end of the season. Bristol Rovers and Bradford might have a say about that, depending on their run-in. Bradford have got a couple of games in hand so they could still come into the reckoning,” Plymouth boss Derek Adams said.

TICKET NEWS

Posh have sold over 250 tickets in advance for the game with tickets on sale until 12pm on Friday at www.theposhtickets.com, via the Ticketmaster hotline 0844 847 1934 (calls cost 7pmm plus your network access fee) and in person at the ABAX Stadium Box Office.

Posh suffer late heartbreak at Home Park as Plymouth Argyle secure a 2-1 victory.

Peterborough United ended with just nine men and conceded in stoppage time as play-off hopefuls Plymouth Argyle came from behind to secure a 2-1 victory at Home Park as the Pilgrims continued their fine run of form since the turn of the year with a hard-fought three points.

Plymouth ha appeals for a spot-kick turned down on six minutes as Graham Carey went down under a challenge from Anthony Grant, but the protests were waved away by the official. The deadlock was broken on six minutes and no surprise on the goal-scorer, number 32 of the season for Jack MARRIOTT who raced onto a pass from George Cooper and executed a wonderful lob over goalkeeper Letheren.

Sonny Bradley fired well wide of the target on 12 minutes after letting fly from long-range as the Pilgrims began to settle down after the shock of conceding. On 14 minutes, Posh were close to doubling the advantage after some wonderful Posh football, Grant, Edwards and Da Silva Lopes all involved, the latter picking out the onrushing Cooper 12-yards from goal but his shot just cleared the crossbar.

Ness fired over on the half-volley moments later after Taylor could only half clear a Carey corner kick. Taylor was cautioned after accidently clattering his man on 18 minutes with the home faithful baying for a red card.

The home side levelled the scores on 27 minutes as a cross from the left was headed home at the near post by Ryan TAYLOR giving Conor O’Malley no chance. Ness was cautioned for a very late kick on Cooper on 33 minutes.

Cooper saw an effort clear the crossbar from 30-yards on 36 minutes after good play in midfield from Forrester and Grant. Bradley sent a header over the bar from a deep Carey corner kick on 43 minutes. Argyle made a strong start to the second period and Lameiras clipped the outside of the post with a deflected effort from 20-yards.

Shephard was cautioned for a heavy challenge on 53 minutes. Cooper was also booked for dissent after expressing his displeasure at a very hefty challenge on him following a nutmeg. Posh made a change on 66 minutes with Joe Ward replacing Chris Forrester.

Makasi sliced wide moments later after being picked out by the dangerman Carey. Steve Evans made his second change with just over 21 minutes remaining, Danny Lloyd replacing Cooper. Posh were reduced to 10-men on 75 minutes, Shephard sent-off for catching Carey off the ball.

O’Malley produced a superb stop with his legs to deny substitute Grant on 83 minutes as the striker found a bit of space in the box. Ryan Taylor was cautioned for catching Baldwin in an aerial duel on 87 minutes.

It all unravelled in the final few minutes for Posh as Baldwin was adjudged to have committed a foul following an aerial duel and the referee pointed to the spot. Steven Taylor was shown a second yellow card for delaying the taking of the spot-kick, which was dispatched with aplomb by Graham CAREY.

Carey flashed a shot wide and Lameiras was denied by the body of O’Malley before the referee brought an end to proceedings.
