Match Previews

Posh v Plymouth Argyle | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday’s clash with Plymouth Argyle.

1 February 2019

Peterborough United entertain Plymouth Argyle at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Darren Ferguson takes charge of his first game back at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Plymouth Argyle visit in Sky Bet League One action (3pm) and both clubs will be keen for the three points for differing reasons.

Posh currently lie in sixth place in the table and a victory against the Pilgrims would consolidate that position in the play-off positions. Argyle, rather like last year, have enjoyed a decent run of form since the turn of the year and have started to pull clear of the relegation zone, but they know a defeat at the ABAX could put them back in danger.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of central defender Ryan Tafazolli as he sits out the third of his three-match suspension. New signing Josh Knight goes straight into the squad after completing a loan move from Leicester City on transfer deadline day.

Plymouth strengthened their squad with the arrival of Lloyd Jones in a loan deal while ex-Posh centre back Peter Grant has departed for Carlisle United. Conor Grant, Joel Grant and Jamie Ness have been ruled out due to injury.

FROM THE GAFFER

“I am looking forward to the game and for us now it is about getting wins on the board. We have a 16-game season and we know what is required. It is about what we do. I was pleased to get Josh into the building on deadline day, he ticks a lot of boxes and we look forward to working with him,” Darren Ferguson said.

Ivan Toney challenges for the ball against Plymouth Argyle

Peterborough United suffered a 1-0 defeat to Plymouth Argyle at the ABAX Stadium and had Lee Tomlin dismissed.

Peterborough United had Lee Tomlin sent off in first half stoppage time and conceded in the last five minutes to an excellent Ruben Lameiras effort at the ABAX Stadium as Plymouth Argyle recorded a 1-0 victory in Sky Bet League One.

Joe Ward flashed a shot from 30-yards wide of the target inside the opening five minutes after a superb back heel from Lee Tomlin created the space in the middle of the park. Ivan Toney curled a superb free-kick over the wall on 12 minutes, but keeper Kyle Letheren made a wonderful stop, tipping it around the post.

Dembele showed some neat touches on 25 minutes to cut inside onto his favoured right-foot but his shot from distance didn’t trouble the visiting shot-stopper. Dembele rounded Letheran on the half hour mark after racing onto a clever Tomlin pass, but he was running out of room and the angle was too tight to force his shot on target.

Tomlin fired well wide on the half volley on 41 minutes after a half-cleared corner from Dembele as Posh tried to find the breakthrough before the interval. Tomlin was booked a minute before the break for a frustrated tackle on Carey.

Ward saw a shot trickle past the far post in first half stoppage time after good link-up between Dembele and Toney. Tomlin was then dismissed by the referee for a second yellow card for pushing Edwards to the floor following an altercation.

Posh made a half-time change with Louis Reed replacing Dembele as Posh readied themselves for a second half with 10-men. Taylor looped a header over the bar from a Sawyer cross on 54 minutes while Ladapo powered a header over from a corner kick on the hour mark.

Smith-Brown finally became the first Plymouth player to be cautioned on 64 minutes for a blatant tug on Lafferty’s shirt. Canavan was cautioned for hacking down Toney on 73 minutes by referee Mr Wright. Dempsey headed over a Lafferty cut back on 78 minutes after fine wing play from Joe Ward on the right.

On 87 minutes, Plymouth broke the deadlock as Ruben LAMEIRAS fired into the corner of the net with his left-foot as Posh failed to clear. Posh huffed and puffed in the final few minutes but couldn’t find an equaliser.

Posh: O’Malley, Naismith, Woodyard, White, Dembele (sub Reed 46min), Cooke (sub Dempsey 75min), Ward, Bennett, Toney, Lafferty, Tomlin. Unused subs: Chapman, Stevens, Knight, Godden, Maddison.
