Posh v Lincoln City | Match Preview

Posh welcome Lincoln City to the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday.

11 October 2019

Lincoln City are the visitors on Saturday as Posh look to make it four league wins in a row at home.

Peterborough United welcome Lincoln City to the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon (3pm) in Sky Bet League One action with Darren Ferguson’s men looking to make it four wins in a row in the league and five in all competitions in front of their own supporters.

Posh go into the game on the back of a 3-3 draw at Adams Park against Wycombe Wanderers while the Imps will be buoyed by their last display and victory, a 2-0 success over Sunderland, who parted company with their manager Jack Ross in the week.

TEAM NEWS

The Posh boss has confirmed that defender Nathan Thompson has a chance of making the squad after making good progress following a groin problem. There are no other injury worries to contend with in the squad. Posh were 4-0 winners over MK Dons in the reserve league during the week with Siriki Dembele bagging a brace as he stakes his claim for a starting berth.

Lincoln are set to be without former Posh defender Michael Bostwick who has been sidelined with a calf problem. Harry Toffolo is set to face his former club while Harry Anderson came through the latter part of the Academy at the football club. Lee Frecklington is unlikely to be involved.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Lincoln have changed their manager and he has already started to put his blueprint on the way they play. They have some good technical players, Jack Payne is a good attacking player and they have threats from wide areas. Lincoln at home was one of the first games I looked for when the fixtures came out,” Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“They’re very dangerous. A lot of League One managers up and down the country would love to have that type of artillery. But we’ve got some dangerous players ourselves. The key for us – and for many teams who come up against Peterborough – is to try and take that threat away and try to nullify the amount of balls that get played into those three in dangerous positions.

“As pleased as I’ve been with us in possession and the attacking threat we’ve posed, I’ve been just as pleased with how we have performed out of possession,” Lincoln City manager Michael Appleton said this week.

Louis Reed celebrates scoring his goal against Lincoln City

Posh make it four league wins at home on the spin and five in all competitions with home win over Lincoln City.

Louis Reed scored his first goal of the season, was sent off for a second bookable offence and found out he had been named the sponsors Man of the Match in the tunnel all within the space of 10 minutes as Peterborough United made it four league wins at home on the spin with a 2-0 victory over Lincoln City.

Marcus Maddison delivered a fine cross into the path of Ivan Toney on 10 minutes, but the striker saw his header deflected wide of the target. Maddison fired a free-kick well wide of the target moments later after Grant had been penalised for handball by referee Marc Edwards.

Knight saw a header from a Maddison corner cleared before Kent saw a downward header routinely stopped by Vickers as Mason recycled the ball back into the box. Shackell saw a header from a deep corner well blocked by Kent before Maddison fired over the top at the other end after wriggling into a bit of space 30-yards from goal.

Toffolo saw a low cross-shot go wide of the target on 43 minutes after a patient build-up from Michael Appleton’s men. On the stroke of half-time, goalkeeper Christy Pym produced a fine reaction stop to keep out a close-range volley from Tyler Walker.

O’Connor was cautioned moments later for an attempted lunge at Maddison as he raced clear. There was a lengthy stoppage at the start of the second half as Michael O’Connor sustained an injury right from kick-off with the medical team spending over five minutes attending to his injury, which appeared to be head or neck related.

Andrade sent a volley wide from 25-yards on the turn as the Imps tried to get their noses in front in this contest. Tom Pett then replaced O’Connor who was unable to continue following that earlier knock.

On the hour mark, Mason was cautioned for a foul on Grant as frustrations began to creep into the Posh play. Pett was booked for bringing down substitute Dembele on 72 minutes. The deadlock was broken on 82 minutes and what a strike it was from Louis REED for his first goal of the season, rifling home from the edge of the box after an intelligent lay-off from Toney.

Vickers did well to cling on to a curler from Maddison with Toney lurking for any spillages on 87 minutes. Posh doubled the lead in fine style on 88 minutes as an excellent clipped pass from Mason picked out TONEY and he superbly lobbed the keeper for his 10th goal of the campaign.

Moments later, Posh were reduced to 10-men as Reed was dismissed for a second bookable offence by the referee. Pym then tipped an Andrade free-kick around the post before Bolger headed a corner kick over the crossbar.

Pym then produced more heroics to keep out a towering Akinde header, somehow clawing it to safety as Posh tried to see out nine minutes of stoppage time.
