MK Dons v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday night’s clash at Stadium: MK.

14 December 2020

Posh travel to face Milton Keynes Dons on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

Peterborough United make the relatively short trip to Stadium: MK to face Russell Martin’s Milton Keynes Dons on Tuesday night in Sky Bet League One action, with up to 2,000 home fans permitted for the Sky Bet League One meeting (7.45pm).

Posh go into the clash on the back of two successive victories, including the 4-1 success over Rochdale at the Weston Homes Stadium thanks to a hat-trick from Jonson Clarke-Harris and a header from Nathan Thompson. Clarke-Harris now has 11 for the campaign and is the leading scorer in the league.

MK Dons were held to a 1-1 draw by improving Burton Albion, securing a point with a penalty in the second half from Scott Fraser after former Posh defender Colin Daniel had given the Brewers the lead inside 10 minutes.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without defender Nathan Thompson, who picked up his fifth caution of the season at the weekend. Ronnie Edwards, Niall Mason and Frazer Blake-Tracy are expected to be vying for his position if Darren Ferguson plays the same formation.

Dan Butler will be back in the squad after missing a few weeks with a calf strain, but Ricky-Jade Jones is set to miss out as he gets a full week of training under his belt ahead of an anticipated return on Saturday against Ipswich Town. Joe Ward is still scheduled to be back at the end of the month.

Experienced front man Cameron Jerome is set to lead the line for the Dons. He has been a revelation since signing for the club earlier in the campaign. Former Posh front man Kieran Agard was an unused substitute at the weekend but Jerome and Cartlon Morris have formed an effective partnership in attack.

FROM THE GAFFER

“It is another big pitch and MK Dons are an expansive side, they have some good, experienced players across the pitch, and they have good options in key areas, but for us it is building on the weekend and trying to put a run together. Russell Martin is somebody I had as a player and I thought then he had all the tools to become a manager and so it has proved, I have spoken to him numerous times since he took the job. Mk Dons are a side that have a clear identity on how they play, they are a good side and a tricky opponent,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“I really enjoyed working with Darren at Peterborough. He made me captain at a very young age. I really improved in my time. I have a lot of respect for him and it is a club I really enjoyed playing for. Peterborough get the big picture. They have a long-term strategy. They are a strong side in this division, it will be a tough game for us. However, we have put in good performances against the top sides this season,” MK Dons boss Russell Martin said.

Posh were pegged back for a point in the second half as clash against MK Dons finishes all square.

Peterborough United picked up a point at Stadium: MK with Jonson Clarke-Harris’s 12th goal of the campaign cancelled out by experienced front man Cameron Jerome’s classy finish in the final third of the contest earning the Dons a 1-1 draw.

The home side had a glorious chance to open the scoring inside four minutes as a teasing centre from Scott Fraser was met unmarked at the far post by Lasse Sorensen, but the midfielder couldn’t keep his header on target with just Christy Pym to beat.

Pym was well placed to keep out a low Cameron Jerome free-kick on 12 minutes before Posh carved out a chance of their own as an Idris Kanu cut-back was hit into the ground by Flynn Clarke, keeper Andrew Fisher doing well to push it around the post.

On 25 minutes, Posh grabbed the lead, a forceful run from a central position by Siriki Dembele, he picked out Harrison Burrows down the left, his cross was perfect for Jonson CLARKE-HARRIS who nodded it back where it came from and into the bottom corner.

Sorinola was cautioned for either a foul or dissent, he fouled Kanu and then launched a tirade at the official. Clarke-Harris was close to making it 2-0 from another Burrows cross on 33 minutes, but this time he powered his header wide.

The Dons Goalkeeper Coach and Assistant Manager were cautioned for dissent as the first half drew to a close, frustrated at the decisions of the officials. Ferguson made a change on 52 minutes with Mo Eisa replacing Dembele with Sammie Szmodics replacing Clarke just before the hour.

Ferguson made a triple change on 71 minutes with Niall Mason, Dan Butler and Ethan Hamilton replacing Kanu, Brown and Burrows as Posh tried to withstand the pressure from the hosts. On 76 minutes, the Dons got the goal their possession deserved as JEROME raced onto a pass from Fraser and coolly slotted past Pym.

MK Dons: Fisher, Williams (sub Poole 61min) , Lewington, Keogh, Kasumu (sub Walker 77min), Morris, Fraser, O’Hora, Sorensen, Sorinola (sub Harvie 61min), Jerome (sub Surman 86min). Unused subs: Nicholls, Gladwin, Agard.

Posh: Pym, Edwards, Beevers, Kent, Kanu (sub Mason  70min), Burrows (sub Butler 70min), Brown (sub  Hamilton 70min), Taylor, Dembele (sub Eisa 52min), Clarke (sub Szmodics 58min), Clarke-Harris. Unused subs: Gyollai, Broom.
