Tranmere Rovers v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday night’s clash at Tranmere Rovers.

16 September 2019

Posh are back in Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday night with a trip to Tranmere Rovers.

Peterborough United return to Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday night with a trip to Prenton Park to face Tranmere Rovers (7.45pm) with Darren Ferguson’s men looking to make it six wins in a row in all competitions.

Saturday’s 6-0 win over Rochdale, which was the biggest victory since the 7-1 success over Ipswich Town in 2011, also clocked up the fifth successive clean sheet, the first time since 2008 that feat had been clocked up.

Tranmere were promoted to League One last term after winning promotion from the National League. They are managed by former Shrewsbury Town boss Micky Mellon.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of defender Frazer Blake-Tracy who is nearing full fitness following a muscle injury. George Boyd remains a doubt for the game after missing the weekend win due to a a slight hamstring injury.

Corey Blackett-Taylor is available for selection against the Posh after serving his three-game suspension. Manager Mellon confirmed that right-back Calum Woods sustained a calf injury during Saturday’s loss at Oxford.

Kane Wilson (knee), Morgan Ferrier (knee), Jake Caprice, (ankle) Mark Ellis, (knee) Evan Gumbs (ACL) and Ishmael Miller (hamstring), who all remain be sidelined.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Tranmere on a Tuesday night away from home is always a difficult game and they have players who can hurt you in attack and they have good experience in the middle of the park. They are managed by Micky Mellon who has good experience and he is a good manager. We are in a good frame of mind though after the run of results we have been on,” Darren Ferguson said.

Posh moved into a 2-0 lead but were pegged back by spirited Tranmere side at Prenton Park.

On paper, a point at Prenton Park on a Tuesday evening is not a bad one, but Peterborough United will be frustrated after moving into a 2-0 lead in the second half thanks to goals from Mo Eisa and Ivan Toney only to be pegged back by a header and a superb volley from the experienced Olly Banks from the edge of the box.

The home side made a bright start and controlled large parts of the opening quarter of an hour without threatening Christy Pym, while at the other end, Posh had appeals for a penalty kick waved away after Ivan Toney took a tumble in the box.

Toney had a great opportunity to break the deadlock on 17 minutes after racing onto a Maddison flick, but he couldn’t force his shot past goalkeeper Davies who did well to save with his legs. Butler fired over from long-range after good work from Ward on 20 minutes as Posh continued to get a foothold in proceedings.

Toney was denied by Davies on 33 minutes after a lightening quick Posh break with Maddison at the heart of it, he timed his pass to perfection, but Toney couldn’t get the ball past the keeper. Stefan Payne headed over from a Banks’ cross on 40 minutes.

Maddison was kept out on the stroke of half-time by Davies after cutting inside onto his favoured left-foot after good hold-up play and pass out wide from Eisa. The deadlock was broken on 53 minutes and it was a quick break from Darren Ferguson’s men, Reed to Knight, and he picks out EISA who swept home a lovely finish across the keeper and into the back of the net.

Less than two minutes later, Posh were 2-0 in front and it was a wonderful goal, Ward down the left, twisting and turning and standing up a fine cross for TONEY to crack home a close-range volley for his eighth goal of the campaign.

Pym produced a fine stop to keep out Payne on 62 minutes after a wonderfully floated pass from Banks before Kent cleared the loose ball against the striker and out for a goal kick. The home side reduced the arrears on 65 minutes as MULLIN powered home a header at the near post following a wonderful cross from Potter.

Tranmere boss Micky Mellon was then shown a straight red card, presumably for dissent, by referee Mr Nield. The home side got themselves level on 70 minutes and you have to say it was a stunning goal from BANKS who saw his volley find the corner of the net from fully 30-yards, a superb effort.

Davies did well to keep out an Eisa effort on the turn on 72 minutes as Posh tried to restore a bit of order to the game. Eisa saw another shot blocked after good work from Butler and Toney on 77 minutes.

Reed clipped the top of the crossbar as the game moved into six minutes of added time with both sides pushing forward to win it. Pym produced a stunning stop in stoppage time as he leapt high to tip a wonderfully timed header from Ray around the post.

Tranmere: Davies, Ridehalgh, Nelson, Ray, Monthe, Morris, Potter (sub Jennings 90min), Mullin, Perkins, Banks, Payne (sub Blackett-Taylor 80min). Unused subs: Pilling, Hepburn-Murphy, Ponticelli, Gilmour, Borthwick-Jackson.

Posh: Pym, Butler, Kent, Beevers, Eisa (sub Dembele 85min), Knight, Maddison (sub Tasdemir 75min), Reed, Toney, Ward, Mason. Unused subs: O’Malley, Thompson, Bennett, Kanu, Burrows.
