Posh v Charlton Athletic | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday’s clash with Charlton Athletic.

25 January 2019

Charlton Athletic visit the ABAX Stadium on Saturday in Sky Bet League One action.

Peterborough United will be looking to make it back to back Sky Bet League One victories at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Steve Evans’ men look to build on the 2-1 victory against Rochdale a fortnight ago against Charlton Athletic (3pm).

The Addicks, like Posh, are in the top six of the table and will be backed by over 2,600 supporters at the ABAX Stadium. It is set to be a cracking atmosphere with home sales encouraging in all areas of the stadium.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of central defender Ryan Tafazolli due to suspension after the appeal against his dismissal at Kenilworth Road last weekend was rejected by the Football Association. Ben White and Kyle Dempsey are both available after missing the Checkatrade Trophy defeat to Portsmouth as they were cup-tied.

Louis Reed, who was suspended for that tie at Fratton Park, is also available but Joe Ward is struggling with a muscular injury. Matt Godden has recovered from an ankle injury that has been troubling him in recent weeks.

Charlton are without the services of front man Lyle Taylor who is serving a suspension after receiving a red card in the 1-0 victory over Accrington Stanley. The club appealed, but like Tafazolli, that appeal was rejected by the FA. Former Posh striker Nicky Ajose left Charlton this week to join Mansfield Town in a loan deal.

FROM THE MANAGER

“Charlton have good players but so do we. We are focussing on how we can impact on the game. I am sure it will be a great atmosphere with a sizeable away support and I know the Posh fans will come out in big numbers too. We have 18 games remaining, this is the time to starting putting a run together,” Steve Evans said.

Conor O'Malley saves a penalty against Charlton

Peterborough United and Charlton Athletic played out an entertaining 0-0 draw at the ABAX Stadium.

Conor O’Malley produced a second half penalty save to preserve a clean sheet for Peterborough United following a hard-fought 0-0 draw at the ABAX Stadium in front of just over 9,000 supporters.

Ivan Toney saw an ambitious over-head kick gathered by goalkeeper Dillion Phillips on two minutes as Posh made a positive start. Matt Godden headed a teasing Marcus Maddison centre over the bar moments later but in fairness he was under a lot of pressure from the centre back Bielik.

Toney fired wide of the near post following an intelligent flick-on from Godden on the quarter hour mark. Josh Cullen saw an effort tipped over by Irishman Conor O’Malley on 26 minutes as he ghosted in behind the Posh defence at the back post.

Williams was cautioned for diving on the half hour mark as he threw himself to the floor in an attempt to win a spot-kick. Referee Mr Webb wasn’t buying it and reached for his pocket quickly. Posh broke at pace on 39 minutes from one end of the pitch to the other with Lafferty, Maddison and Tomlin all involved, the latter’s low cross slid behind by Bauer for a corner.

Godden fired wide of the near post moments after the half-time whistle after linking well with Ivan Toney. At the other end, the highly-rated Ahearne-Grant saw a deflected effort smack against the crossbar after a poor defensive header from Rhys Bennett.

O’Malley made a routine stop to keep out a long-range strike from Reeves on 50 minutes before the same player flicked a volley over bar from a right-wing centre. Darren Pratley headed a cross wide of the target on 58 minutes as the visitors enjoyed a spell of possession.

Bielik was cautioned for a foul on Toney on 67 minutes as Posh prepared their first change of the afternoon. Lafferty saw a shot from distance pushed around the post by goalkeeper Phillips on 71 minutes as Posh screamed that Bielik should have been dismissed for an obvious tug on the shirt of Maddison.

Reeves fired wide from 20-yards on 75 minutes after Posh failed to clear as Charlton pressed for the breakthrough. Charlton were awarded a spot-kick a few moments later as Naismith was penalised for a foul on Cullen. Ahearne-Grant took the spot-kick but O’Malley produced a good save to keep the scores at 0-0.

Naismith fired over in stoppage time with a rasping drive as four minutes were indicated by the fourth official.
