Peterborough United return to Sky Bet League One action on Saturday with fellow promotion contenders Charlton Athletic the visitors to the ABAX Stadium (3pm) and it will be a start of a new era in more ways than one.

Steve Evans takes charge of Posh for the first time and it will also be the first fixture under the club’s new co-ownership trio of Stewart Thompson and Jason Neale and Darragh MacAnthony. Posh were without a fixture last weekend as the scheduled clash at Shrewsbury Town was postponed due to the inclement weather.

The Addicks were also without a game and will be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat to Shrewsbury Town. The game between the two sides finished 2-2 at the Valley earlier in the season, Posh surrendering a 2-0 lead to concede twice in the final few moments.

TEAM NEWS

Boss Steve Evans is waiting on the fitness of centre back Ryan Tafazolli ahead of the game. The defender has been struggling with a hamstring injury. Anthony Grant missed the 2-1 win over Walsall due to injury but is back in the squad while Gwion Edwards and Alex Penny remain sidelined.

Josh Magennis has a hamstring problem and may miss out - while boss Karl Robinson will be hoping Tariqe Fosu and Jake Forster-Caskey will be ready to play, too - both trying to overcome their own injury concerns. Former Posh front man Nicky Ajose is another option – he played for the under 23s in mid-week.

MANAGER QUOTES

“It will be a proud moment for me to be manager of Peterborough United for the first time on Saturday, but come 3pm, it will be about doing my job and trying to get three points for the club. I was at the game between the two sides earlier in the season and Charlton showed why they are a good side to come back and get a point.”

FROM THE OPPOSITION

Actually the league standards from the bottom to the top two are great. Shrewsbury have done an unbelievable job and Blackburn have spent money and kept hold of their best players. All the rest are in a very similar boat. Two or three years ago you would not get some of these results. Oldham going to Scunthorpe and winning 2-0 or Walsall playing in the snow at Peterborough last Tuesday and then travelling back and getting a 3-0 win at Southend United. Our game at Peterborough on Saturday is massive. Everyone’s target for sixth place is 71 points. Millwall sneaked it at the death last year,” Karl Robinson said.

Posh defeat Charlton Athletic 4-1 in front of over 6,300 supporters at the ABAX Stadium.

Peterborough United recorded a 4-1 victory over Charlton Athletic in Steve Evans’ first game in charge with Jack Marriott taking his season tally to 27 in all competitions and 21 in League One.

Marriott scored twice in the second half with Marcus Maddison and Andrew Hughes also on target in a comfortable victory over a play-off rival at the ABAX Stadium.

Jack Baldwin guided a header from a Marcus Maddison free-kick over the crossbar on six minutes after the Posh number 11 was fouled late midway through the Charlton half. Bond gathered a low Magennis effort at the second attempt by the near post moments later after cutting inside from the left.

Bond was well placed to deny Forster-Caskey on the quarter-hour mark as he ghosted into the box following a flick-on from a long throw. Midfielder Chris Forrester fired over the top from 25-yards after a neat turn 25-yards from goal.

On-loan Bogle showed his ability again on 28 minutes, collecting a pass from Marriott before driving into the box, his left-foot shot was powerful and cracked against the near post. Forrester saw a deflected shot gathered by former Posh goalkeeper Ben Amos a minute later after more good hold up play from Bogle.

Kaikai tested Bond with a powerful effort from a tight angle on 31 minutes which the Posh shot-stopper did well to hold. Maddison curled a 20-yard free-kick wide of the target with his left-foot on 38 minutes after he had been felled after a forceful run.

Baldwin was cautioned for a rash challenge five minutes before the break and Solly followed him into the book for dissent. On 44 minutes, Posh got their noses in front as Andrew HUGHES side-footed home with his right-foot at the back post after a clipped cross from Joe Ward.

Charlton were awarded a penalty kick on 54 minutes as Shephard was adjudged to have nudged his man in the back, after initially waving the protests away, referee Mr Huxtable pointed to the spot. Magennis stepped up and struck the spot-kick well but it went wide of the target.

On 59 minutes, Posh had a penalty of their own, a wonderful run from Ward down the left and he then had the presence of mind to pick out Maddison on the near side, he ran at pace at the defender and was tripped inside the box. This time the referee had no hesitation in pointing for a penalty and MADDISON coolly sent the keeper the wrong way to double the Posh lead.

Charlton used all three of their substitutions before the 70 minute mark with Zyro, Ajose and Reeves all introduced. Fosu-Henry missed a glorious chance to halve the deficit on 68 minutes, but he planted his unmarked header wide of the target.

Manager Steve Evans made his first change just before the 70 minute mark, introducing Michael Doughty for Ward. On 73 minutes, the visitors pulled a goal back, an in-swinging cross from the right was glanced home at the near post by substitute ZYRO.

Danny Lloyd replaced Bogle moments later as the game entered the final quarter. On 82 minutes, Posh restored their two-goal cushion, Hughes picking out Lloyd down the left, his pull back was controlled by MARRIOTT and the former Luton man fired low past the keeper from close-range.

Moments later it was 4-1 and what a ball from substitute Jermaine Anderson, curling it around the back four where MARRIOTT was there to stoop home and head home his second goal of the game.
