Posh v Wycombe | Match Preview

Posh host Wycombe Wanderers at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday.

1 March 2019

Peterborough United go in search of three points on Saturday afternoon at the ABAX Stadium as Wycombe Wanderers visit (3pm).

Peterborough United entertain Wycombe Wanderers at the ABAX Stadium in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) knowing a victory could see them move back into the play-off positions as we move into the key month of March.

Manager Darren Ferguson has spoken about the importance of the month with plenty of points up for grabs and visiting Wycombe will be desperate for an upturn in their fortunes after a poor run of form in League One.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of striker Ivan Toney who is serving a one-match ban following his red card for deliberate handball last weekend against Shrewsbury Town. Siriki Dembele (knee) and Josh Knight (ankle) are both ruled out but Daniel Lafferty should be fit after hamstring trouble.

Wycombe forward Scott Kashket will undergo a late fitness test having come off in the 1-0 loss to Gillingham on Saturday with a hamstring problem. Luke Bolton is available again after missing that game as a precaution following a head injury.

With captain Adam El-Abd still suspended, Anthony Stewart will continue to deputise at the back. Yves Ma-Kalambay has been back in full training after a broken finger and could return to the bench, while Darius Charles (hip) is still out.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Gareth Ainsworth has done a fantastic job at Wycombe. They will work hard, they play with high energy and they can cause you problems if you allow them too. We need to find a way to win the game. That is as simple as it gets. We need to get the three points,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

There’s different factors now; a different manager and a different team. Darren Ferguson is a guy who I’ve got huge amounts of respect for; he’s given me snippets of advice throughout my career as I’ve come up against him and we’ve had some good battles, so I’m expecting nothing less than that and a drink with Darren after the game.

“We’re both in a sticky patch and something's got to give. They’re missing their striker Ivan Toney this week, we’re missing Scotty Kashket, but Luke Bolton comes back into the frame after concussion protocols so we’re strong, we’re looking forward to the game and, like I say, he’s a top manager and this will be a tough game and I don’t think it will be the same as when we faced them at home,” Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth said.

Darren Ferguson’s men made it two wins from three following an entertaining 4-2 victory over Wycombe Wanderers.

Peterborough United drew level with Doncaster Rovers in the Sky Bet League One table after a 4-2 win over Wycombe Wanderers at the ABAX Stadium with Marcus Maddison and Matt Godden both bagging a brace of goals in an entertaining home success.

Posh made a bright start to the contest and just like last week against Shrewsbury Town, found the opening goal as Matt GODDEN tapped home at the back post to convert a delicious low delivery from Marcus Maddison.

It was 2-0 on nine minutes and the same combination as Maddison produced a fine through ball to GODDEN and he did the rest, sliding the ball past the advancing goalkeeper. The visitors reduced the arrears on 14 minutes as a cross from the right was diverted past his own keeper at the near post by Ryan TAFAZOLLI.

Samuel fired wide from 20-yards after initially doing well to close down a Woodyard clearance as the Chairboys buoyed by that goal began to assert themselves for the first time. Freeman flashed a cross-shot across the six-yard box on 25 minutes after finding a bit of room in the penalty area.

Jacobson was cautioned for a bad foul on Maddison just after the half hour mark by referee Mr Stockbridge. Posh made it 3-1 on 31 minutes and it was a wonderful strike from MADDISON who saw his left-footed free-kick sail into the top corner.

The visitors reduced the arrears again on 37 minutes as a cross from the left was fumbled by Conor O’Malley and BLOOMFIELD was well placed to take advantage, rolling the ball home on his 500th club appearance.

Maddison dragged a right-footed shot wide from 30-yards a few minutes after the re-start as Posh tried to get themselves back into a position of comfort and calm. Lafferty saw a low left-footed effort from 25-yards well gathered by Allsop after a spell of patient football from Darren Ferguson’s men.

On 65 minutes, Posh made it 4-2 after a swift counter attack, Tomlin fed Godden, who wisely saw MADDISON in a bit of space to his right, he took a touch and rifled the ball past Allsop with his right-foot.

Maddison fired over on his left-foot after tricking his way into the box on 72 minute’s moments after O’Malley had pounced on a loose ball following a mad scramble after a corner kick. Ward was cautioned for kicking the ball away on 79 minutes’ moments after Louis Reed had replaced Cooke.

Ward saw a toe-poke gathered by Allsop on 84 minutes after a fine pass from Tomlin picked the winger out in the area. Cooper was cautioned for a foul in stoppage time before Akinfenwa nodded a header wide.

Posh: O’Malley, Naismith, Woodyard, White, Godden, Cooke (sub Reed 79min), Ward, Lafferty, Maddison, Tomlin (sub Cooper 85min). Unused subs: Chapman, Bennett, Denton, Stevens, Dempsey.
