Burton v Posh | Match Preview

Back on the road for Posh this weekend.

26 October 2018

A look ahead to Saturday's trip to the Pirelli Stadium to face Burton Albion.

Peterborough United travel to the Pirelli Stadium on Saturday to face Burton Albion in Sky Bet League One action (3pm) looking to build on Tuesday evening’s hard fought 1-0 victory over Fleetwood Town at the ABAX Stadium.

The Brewers will be tough opposition for Posh – they go into the clash off the back of a 2-2 draw at league leaders Portsmouth and have also beaten Sunderland and Doncaster Rovers at their own stadium this season.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of left-back Colin Daniel due to suspension. The former Blackpool man collected his fifth booking of the campaign on Tuesday evening. Tyler Denton would be a natural replacement, but Rhys Bennett and Jason Naismith have also been discussed as possible replacements in that position.

New signing Sebastien Bassong could feature after agreeing a short-term move on Thursday afternoon. There are no other injury concerns within the camp with only young defender Lewis Freestone and attacker Morgan Penfold on the treatment table.

Damien McCrory, Marvin Sordell, Ben Turner, David Templeton and Scott Fraser were all missing on Tuesday when the Brewers earned a 2-2 draw at top-of-the-table Portsmouth but they are nearing full fitness and could make their returns on Saturday.

MANAGER QUOTES

“Burton secured an excellent point at Portsmouth on Tuesday night and they have beaten some top sides on their own patch. They have kept the majority of their squad together and will be probably our toughest opponents away from home since Sunderland. However, we go there in good shape with our away record,” Steve Evans said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“Five senior players out at the same time is not ideal but it can happen like that. We had a pretty full squad prior to those injuries but all of sudden one goes and then another and you are five down. But the youngsters have stepped up and anyone who has come in and taken the place of the senior players has done remarkably well,” Burton boss Nigel Clough said.

TICKET NEWS

The game is no longer all-ticket for Posh fans. There is a £2 price increase on the day.

Posh make it two wins from two after 2-1 victory at the Pirelli Stadium.

Peterborough United continued their excellent run of form away from home with a seventh victory from eight league games as goals from Joe Ward and Siriki Dembele earned a hard fought 2-1 win at the Pirelli Stadium against Burton Albion.

Posh forced a number of set-pieces in the early exchanges with centre half pair Rhys Bennett and Ryan Tafazolli both seeing early efforts deflected behind. Devante Cole fired over the bar on the volley from a corner kick on 14 minutes as the hosts caused a bit of alarm from a set-piece.

Godden saw a shot blocked on the edge of the area after a good one-two with Naismith at the other end. Heskith curled over on his left-foot on 25 minutes after finding a bit of space on the edge of the penalty area. Godden had the ball in the back of the net moments later with a fine finish on the volley but the official deemed he had fouled his man before his stunning finish.

The deadlock was broken on 29 minutes as Joe WARD’s rasping left-foot drive from 25-yards took a slight deflection off a defender and nestled into the corner. Chapman was well placed to keep out a low shot from Miller at the other end as Burton tried to find an immediate reply.

Bennett headed a Reed free-kick over the bar on 32 minutes after Naismith was clattered by the touchline. Chapman did well to deny Quinn three minutes before the break after the experienced midfield man cut inside onto his un-favoured right-foot.

Dembele cracked the outside of the post on 50 minutes after a pacy run down the left hand side after being picked out by Denton. McFadzean was cautioned for a late tackle on Ward on 55 minutes by referee Graham Salisbury.

The lead was doubled on 58 minutes and it was the perfect counter attack, Ward timing the pass to perfection and DEMBELE took a touch and rounded the keeper before firing home with his left foot. The two-goal cushion didn’t last long though as ALLEN fired into the roof the net after Boyce had picked the midfield man out in space.

Bennett was cautioned for kicking the ball away on 73 minutes and Chapman followed him in the book for time wasting. Chapman denied Templeton from range and then produced an even better stop to deny the dangerous Boyce on 85 minutes as the pressure continued to intensify.

Posh made a change on 87 minutes with Jason Cummings replacing Toney in attack. Chapman was then well placed to deny a back post Fraser header, however Posh held on to equal their best run of form away from home for 10 years.
