Shrewsbury v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday night’s trip to Shrewsbury.

4 November 2019

Posh head to Shrewsbury on Tuesday night in Sky Bet League One action.

Peterborough United will look to bounce back from Saturday’s 4-3 defeat at Blackpool when they travel to Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night in a re-arranged Sky Bet League One fixture (7.45pm), moved due to the original tie being postponed due to international call-ups.

Manager Darren Ferguson will be looking for a response from his side after defensive errors cost his side dear at Bloomfield Road. However, Posh remain in third in the league table and they can make ground on those above them with three points.

TEAM NEWS

The Posh boss hinted at changes to his starting line-up for the trip to the Shrews but confirmed there would not be wholesale changes. Frazer Blake-Tracy could return to the squad after not being involved in the 18 on Saturday. Posh don’t have any serious injury worries to contend with.

After Saturday’s defeat at Wycombe, Ro-Shaun Williams is suspended for Tuesday’s game after picking up a red card. However, Town saw the return of Ethan Ebanks-Landell on the bench on Saturday and he could start for the Shrews.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Shrewsbury are a well organised team. They are very tight in terms of how many goals they have conceded. It is away from home, they are a decent team so it will be another hard game for us. We have to be better than what we were on Saturday because if I am honest, aside from Dan Butler, who I thought handled Feeney quite well and created a goal, the rest of the performances were nowhere near that,” Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“It will be a really good game; Peterborough have got a front three who are very prolific and really good attacking. They were slow to start their season at first but since two, three, four games ago, ever since then, they have really kicked on and got a bit of a groove. Attacking wise, they’re right up there and probably the best in the league.

“We have to respect what they’re good at and respect their strengths and try to work on their weaknesses as well. You can’t do one without the other, you have to respect what they’re good at as they’ve got some good attacking players, top of the goal scoring charts, two of them and Maddison just in behind so we have to respect that and try to impose ourselves on the game as well,” Shrewsbury manager Sam Ricketts said.

Posh suffer second successive league defeat as Shrews tame Posh.

Peterborough United suffered a second successive Sky Bet League One defeat as Shrewsbury secured all three points with a combative display at the Montgomery Waters Stadium with Ethan Ebanks-Landell’s first half goal the difference between the sides.

Marcus Maddison fired wide from 25-yards inside the opening five minutes after good work from Nathan Thompson, included in the starting line-up in the league for the first time from the start.

Maddison curled a free-kick into the wall on 26 minutes before successive corner kicks from the winger caused plenty of panic without an end product. Joe Murphy was well placed to keep out a flicked effort from Beevers on the half hour mark after a good header down from Boyd.

Dave Edwards squandered a fine chance to break the deadlock on 36 minutes after a miss-kick from Bennett, the experienced former Wolverhampton Wanderers man blasting wide of the near post. Posh striker Toney needed treatment moments later after a crunching tackle from Ebanks-Landell, the defender not even booked for the foul.

Toney was cautioned for a foul three minutes before the break, a booking that rules him out of the league fixture with Burton Albion later this month. Pym produced a good reaction stop to keep out Cummings on 43 minutes as the hosts began to get on top.

Shrewsbury opened the scoring in first half stoppage time as a free-kick conceded by Bennett, who was booked, was stabbed goalwards by Beckles, Pym did well to keep that effort out but couldn’t prevent EBANKS-LANDELL from poking home the rebound from close-range.

On 52 minutes, Posh won a spot-kick as Toney was pushed in the box by Beckles. Maddison took the spot-kick but saw his left-footed effort saved by goalkeeper Murphy. Posh made a double change on the hour with Siriki Dembele and Idris Kanu replacing Boyd and Maddison.

Toney whistled a shot wide of the upright on 63 minutes after linking well with Knight as Posh came close to levelling the scores. Butler was cautioned on 85 minutes for dissent as the game ended in frustration for Posh players and management alike.

The home side had two players cautioned for time wasting in the final 10 minutes as they saw out the game.

Shrewsbury: Murphy, Pierre, Golbourne, Edwards (sub L. Thompson 63min), Beckles, Whalley (sub Walker 90min), Norburn, Love, Ebanks-Landell, Laurent, Cummings (sub Okenabirhie 59min). Unused subs: Agius, Giles, Walker, McCormick, Goss.

Posh: Pym, Butler, Beevers, Bennett, N. Thompson (sub Ward 84min), Reed, Maddison (sub Kanu 59min), Boyd (sub Dembele 59min), Knight, Eisa, Toney. Unused subs: Chapman, Kent, Blake-Tracy, Mason.
