Posh v AFC Wimbledon | Match Preview

Posh face Dons at the ABAX Stadium.

26 November 2018

A look ahead to Tuesday night's clash with AFC Wimbledon.

Peterborough United return to action at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday night with the visit of AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League One action (7.45pm) and a victory for Steve Evans’ men can see them move up the table with Sunderland and Barnsley facing each other.

Posh have won five and drawn two of the last nine matches in all competitions and are unbeaten in four going into the contest with the manager-less Dons who did record a win in their last fixture against Southend United at the weekend.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are once again available to call on a full first team squad for the game with no players currently troubling the medical department. “It is testament to the backroom staff of Ross, Lee and Paul that we are okay injury wise at the minute. We have a full squad to choose from,” said boss Steve Evans.

The visitors are likely to stick with a similar line-up to the one that tasted success against the Shrimpers with former Bradford front man James Hanson expected to lead the line alongside one-time Posh striker Kwesi Appiah.

MANAGER QUOTES

“My assistant Paul Raynor watched them against Southend United at the weekend and they got a good win. They came off the back of a long losing run so they will be full of confidence after the victory. They have some good players but we are focussing on ourselves,” Evans said.

TICKET NEWS 

Tickets for the game are available at www.theposhtickets.com, via the Ticketmaster hotline 0844 847 1934 (calls cost 7ppm plus your network access fee) and in person at the ABAX Stadium Box Office. AFC Wimbledon had sold under 100 tickets for the game in advance at 3pm on Monday afternoon.

Posh claim three points after comfortable success over AFC Wimbledon.

A superb strike from Marcus Maddison secured three points for Peterborough United at the ABAX Stadium in Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday evening and in truth, it could have been a far greater margin of victory with the woodwork and the assistant referee coming to the visitors’ rescue.

Ivan Toney sent an early half volley over the crossbar after a superb cross from Marcus Maddison after Posh broke well from an AFC Wimbledon free-kick inside the opening two minutes.

Toney sent a free-kick from 30-yards over the crossbar on 10 minutes after Godden was felled following a forceful run. Godden had the ball in the back of the net twice from long driven passes but both times the assistant referee chalked the efforts off for offside.

Toney saw a low shot gathered by McDonnell after the in-form front man had done well to intercept a wayward defensive pass. Woodyard saw a deflected effort pushed around the post by McDonnell after a neat one-two with Toney with Tafazolli heading a driven Reed corner wide from the resulting set-piece.

Posh carved out a glorious chance three minutes before the break as a low pass from Maddison somehow reached Godden, he took a touch but saw his left-foot shot saved by McDonnell.

Godden was denied by McDonnell moments after the re-start after good play from Dembele, who wanted a spot-kick moments later after appearing to be shoved in the area after a strong run into the box.

Godden guided a Daniel cross over the bar at the near post on 52 minutes before Maddison sent a low shot from 25-yards inches past the post.  The deadlock was broken on the hour mark and what a goal it was, Marcus MADDISON collecting a pass, taking a touch inside and curling a superb effort past the despairing dive of McDonnell with his left-foot.

Trotter headed over an inswinging cross on 70 minutes before the Dons made their final change with Kwesi Appiah introduced. Tafazolli produced a fine clearance off the line to deny Pigott moments later after the front man had rounded Chapman following a poor header back from Bennett.

A wonderful cross from Maddison nearly produced the second goal as defender Nightingale on the stretch diverted it onto the base of his own post.

Posh: Chapman, Daniel, Woodyard, Tafazolli, Godden (sub O’Hara 82min), Dembele, Reed, Ward, Bennett, Toney, Maddison (sub Cooper 86min). Unused subs: Tyler, Naismith, Walker, Denton

AFC Wimbledon: McDonnell, Purrington, Oshilaja, Nightingale, Pinnock, Trotter (sub Appiah 71min), Barcham (sub Jervis 67min), Soares, McDonald, Pigott, Wordsworth (sub Hartigan 62min). Unused subs: King, Watson, Thomas, Egan.

Attendance: 5,064 (195 AFC Wimbledon fans)
