Posh v Southend United | Match Preview

Posh host Shrimpers at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening.

10 February 2020

Southend United visit the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

Peterborough United go in search of their sixth successive Sky Bet League One victory on Tuesday evening when they entertain Sol Campbell’s Southend United at the Weston Homes Stadium (7.45pm).

Posh go into the clash in third place in the league table following Saturday’s thumping 4-0 victory over Oxford United while struggling Southend were beaten away from home at Blackpool at the weekend and face an uphill task to avoid the drop.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the suspended Nathan Thompson who serves a one-match suspension following his red card against Oxford. Frankie Kent will have a scan on his knee injury on Tuesday morning so is unavailable. The club are ‘hopeful’ that it is not a serious injury, but the scans and x-rays will confirm details.

Frazer Blake-Tracy provides an option at centre back while Rhys Bennett and Niall Mason should continue where they left off alongside Mark Beevers at the back. Idris Kanu is back in training but won’t be considered for this clash after a lay-off with an eye injury.

The Shrimpers are e in advanced talks with former Macclesfield Town duo Theo Vassell and Emmanuel Osadebe and they could feature. They travelled to Bloomfield Road but were not given clearance to be involved.

FROM THE GAFFER

“It will be a different kind of test for us on Tuesday night, but the players know the standards that they have set and the levels they have to reach to be successful. They know that the running distances need to be right. We have kept the same 18 for a few weeks but we know that has to change with Nathan suspended and Frankie injured but we have a really strong squad and we are looking forward to the game,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“Now all the games are a test. We have to patch ourselves up again and go again, and hopefully, we get a bit of luck [at Peterborough]. That’s all we can do really; we’re going to look over the next 10 days to two weeks and see where we’re at,” Shrimpers boss Sol Campbell said following the defeat to Blackpool.

Posh chalked up their sixth straight win and their third victory in a row by scoring four goals.

Peterborough United overcame Southend United 4-0 at the Weston Homes Stadium to make it the second successive victory by that score-line, the third game in a row that four goals have been plundered and the sixth straight Sky Bet League One victory including four clean sheets on the way.

With a strong wind at the backs of the Posh players in the first half, it was midfielder Jack Taylor who chanced his arm in the opening five minutes, his 40-yard free-kick beaten away by goalkeeper Mark Oxley. Posh carved out another opportunity on nine minutes as a perfect pass from Mason picked out Toney but his side-foot volley whistled just wide of the post.

Beevers sent a looping header just over the crossbar from a deep free kick from Butler before keeper Oxley required treatment following a collision with the crossbar. Ward fired over on the half volley on 18 minutes after a driven Butler corner picked him out on the edge of the box.

McLaughlin was cautioned on 28 minutes for a cynical foul on Taylor, as referee Mr Boyeson finally booked a Southend player after letting numerous fouls go. Ward rifled a shot over the top after good work from Taylor and Szmodics on 36 minutes as Posh tried to find the breakthrough past a stubborn Shrimpers rear-guard.

Toney was shown a yellow card, his 10th of the campaign, for a foul by the touchline, meaning he will miss the trip to Fleetwood and Burton. Mantom was cautioned for kicking the ball away two minutes after the re-start.

On 49 minutes, the Shrimpers struck the post as a deflected effort from Milligan struck the inside of the post before rebounding to safety. Less than 60 seconds later and Posh were in front as Joe Ward nipped in front of the defender, advanced and timed his pass to perfection to Siriki DEMBELE who did the rest.

Rush was a whisker away from levelling the scores on 54 minutes but his curler from the edge of the box crept just wide of the post with Pym at full stretch. Posh doubled the lead just before the hour mark, Jack TAYLOR slamming the ball home from just inside the box after Dembele shot deflected into his path.

Darren Ferguson immediately made a double change with George Boyd and Josh Knight replacing Brown and Szmodics. Posh made it 3-0 on 70 minutes as a Knight shot is intercepted by TONEY, who rounded the keeper and slotted the ball into the back of the net.

It was 4-0 not long afterwards as a driven Butler corner was headed powerfully past keeper Oxley by that man TONEY again. Toney was withdrawn to a standing ovation on 75 minutes with Mo Eisa his replacement.

Demetriou was cautioned for a foul as Southend continued to demonstrate that discipline is not in their vocabulary. Ward volleyed wide of the near post after bustling his way into the box as Posh pushed for a fifth. Boyd was denied by keeper Oxley after darting into the box with Egbri firing off when off balance.
