Ipswich Town v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday’s trip to Portman Road.

31 January 2020

Posh look to make it four wins in a row when they travel to Ipswich Town on Saturday.

Peterborough United travel to Portman Road to face Ipswich Town in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday afternoon (3pm) and go into the clash with the Tractor Boys in good spirits after three successive victories against Wycombe Wanderers, Rotherham United and Accrington Stanley.

Those wins have lifted Posh up into fourth place in the league table with Ipswich still very much in the hunt for automatic promotion despite a dip in form over the Christmas period. They were beaten 1-0 by league leaders Rotherham in their last fixture at the New York Stadium.

TEAM NEWS

Posh welcome back defender Frazer Blake-Tracy from injury but Idris Kanu has not yet been cleared to resume full training after an eye injury. His recent consultation was positive and he is nearing a return.

Ipswich are sweating on the fitness of Emyr Hughes, Teddy Bishop and Josh Earl with the latter expected to miss out with a cheekbone injury. Ipswich have named the same starting line-up for the last four matches, but could make one or two changes for this fixture.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Ipswich are very difficult to beat at home and they are a tough opponent with lots of good players, particularly in attacking areas. They have good options with Norwood, Keane and Jackson and will be looking to bounce back from the last defeat to Rotherham. We are taking a good travelling support, so it should be a great atmosphere. We go there in good form with momentum and we want to carry that on,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“The team's been going really well. We lost a game but it's no problem to lose a game because we've been going well. I won't let one defeat blight it because of the way we've been playing. I won’t sit here and say it was a major disaster. We've been on a really good run so we'll go and try and win another game,” Ipswich boss Paul Lambert said.

The game is all-ticket for Posh fans with only a handful of tickets remaining at 11am on Friday. The ticket office is open, while fans can also buy tickets online at www.theposhtickets.com. Posh have sold just under 1,900 tickets for the game.

Peterborough United made it four wins from four after a stunning 4-1 win at Ipswich Town.

Peterborough United climbed into third position in the Sky Bet League One table with a fourth successive win and the first league win at Portman Road in 60 years as Darren Ferguson’s men romped to a 4-1 victory over promotion challengers Ipswich Town.

Mark Beevers tested goalkeeper Will Norris inside the opening three minutes as he connected sweetly on the volley from a Dan Butler corner kick. Gwion Edwards, facing his former club, fired over on his left-foot on 13 minutes after cutting inside Butler.

Jack Taylor headed wide from a Ward corner kick on 17 minutes after finding a bit of space in an around the penalty spot. Norris was well placed to keep out a snap-shot from Dembele moments later after good work from Taylor in the build-up.

Posh found the breakthrough on 24 minutes as Wilson was adjudged to have fouled Dembele in the box and after a long delay as the referee chatted with his assistant, the referee Mr Woolmer pointed to the spot and Ivan TONEY coolly dispatched the spot-kick.

Posh doubled the lead on 34 minutes and it was a nightmare for former Cambridge United keeper Will Norris who inexplicably tried to play with the ball at his feet, allowing SZMODICS to nip in, dispossess him and tap into the empty net.

Pym was well placed to keep out a half volley from Judge moments later as Edwards led the charge on the right-hand side. Four minutes of added time was indicated by the fourth official, but Posh saw those four minutes out comfortably into the interval.

Ipswich made a change at the break with James Norwood replacing Judge as Paul Lambert made an attacking switch. Norris did well to keep out a deflected Toney volley two minutes into the second half after Dembele had initially done well to divert a long ball into his path.

Posh made it 3-0 on 51 minute as a superb pass from Jack Taylor found DEMBELE, he took a touch, cut inside and curled a fantastic effort past the keeper and into the back of the net. Posh made a change just after the hour with Josh Knight replacing Brown in midfield.

Butler was cautioned by Andy Woolmer for a foul on 65 minutes by referee Mr Woolmer. Posh made it 4-0 on 74 minutes as a chipped pass from Dembele picked out SZMODICS and he calmly rolled the ball past keeper Norris. Edwards was cautioned for a foul on Kent as frustrations began to boil over.

Ipswich pulled a goal back on 79 minutes as Beevers was penalised for a foul on Sears and substitute NORWOOD stepped up to coolly convert from the spot. Toney saw a volley beaten away by Norris before Taylor fired wide from long-range.
