Posh face Shrewsbury Town at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday.

Peterborough United entertain league leaders Shrewsbury Town at the ABAX Stadium in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) and it is an opportunity to end the only remaining unbeaten league record in the EFL that is on offer for Grant McCann’s men.

Posh go into the game on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Scunthorpe United while the Shrews scored late to beat Fleetwood Town in their last outing. They have already opened up a little gap between themselves and the team in third place in the division and arrive at the ABAX full of confidence.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of striker Junior Morias due to a thigh injury, but McCann revealed in the pre-match press conference that he is ahead of schedule. Michael Doughty and Ryan Tafazolli have been declared fit, while midfielder Chris Forrester has returned from Ireland following a short break.

Shrewsbury are sweating on the fitness of the influential Junior Brown who suffered a knee injury in that win over the Cod Army. In-form front man Stefan Payne is expected to lead the line for the Salop.

MANAGER QUOTES

“Shrewsbury have had a very good start to the season, but it is a good game for us at this moment in time and it is one that we are looking forward to. I can see positive signs from the last two games, we should have won at Southend and we contrived to lose from a winning position last week. We know it is the start of a busy week and three big matches for the club.”

FAN ZONE

There is plenty going on ahead of kick-off on Saturday with the fan zone open from 1pm featuring FootDarts, FootPool, the speed kick machine and much more. Peter Burrow will be present and there is a face painter too!

League leaders beaten at the ABAX Stadium as Marcus Maddison stunner seals 1-0 victory.

A moment of magic from Marcus Maddison and some wonderful last ditch defending earned Peterborough United a 1-0 win over previously unbeaten Shrewsbury Town after a tense clash at the ABAX Stadium.

After a quiet start, the game flew into life with an absolute wonderful piece of individual skill, awareness and technique as Marcus MADDISON sent a stunning half volley into the back of the net from close to the half-way line past a back peddling Henderson who was left with no chance.

Goalkeeper Jonathan Bond produced a fine stop to push a header from Carlton Morris around the post on 17 minutes after Baldwin had been penalised for a foul. Maddison was booked for deliberate handball on the halfway line moments later as an over-hit pass was struck in his general direction.

Marriott saw a volley superbly blocked on 22 minutes after collecting a throw-in from the left by Hughes. Maddison saw a rasping drive well held by Henderson after a strong press from the Posh front players to put the league leaders under pressure.

Edwards saw a fierce shot beaten away by Henderson on 31 minutes after strong running and hold-up play by Marriott. Whalley saw a rare effort at the other end roll past the post from 25-yards as the Shrews began to assert themselves again.

Bond was well placed to deny a looping effort from Nsiala on 36 minutes before a pacy run from Da Silva Lopes was ended with a fine Beckles tackle. Edwards went into the book for a late tackle on Whalley.

Whalley was cautioned for a foul on Hughes on 48 minutes. Nolan followed him into the book for a crunching tackle on Maddison on the halfway line. Ogogo was next to be cautioned after a foul on Marriott by the touchline.

Henderson did well to deny Marriott after Doughty’s initial shot was blocked as the hour mark approached. Godfrey was cautioned for dissent on 63 minutes as Tafazolli received more treatment for a head wound.

Anthony Grant was cautioned for a foul moments later as he tried to lead an ambitious high press from midfield. The visitors made a double change on 70 minutes with Stefan Payne and Bryn Morris introduced.

Tafazolli was cautioned for a late challenge on 73 minutes. Posh made their first change with 10 minutes to go as goalscorer Maddison was replaced by Jermaine Anderson. Bond did well to beat away a low drive from Nolan on 86 minutes.

Marriott saw a late effort parried by Henderson before Edwards saw a goalbound effort blocked as the game went into a mammoth six minutes of injury time. Henderson made a superb block to deny Edwards on the counter attack as Posh came close to a second.
