Plymouth v Posh | Match Preview

We look ahead to Saturday’s long trip to Home Park.

22 February 2021

Posh make the long journey to the south west to face Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday evening.

Peterborough United are in Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday evening with a trip to the South West to face Plymouth Argyle (7.30pm) and the hosts will provide stiff competition with Ryan Lowe’s men unbeaten in nine games in the league.

They picked up a point on the road at Rochdale on Saturday, while Posh beat AFC Wimbledon 3-0 at the Weston Homes Stadium thanks to two goals from Sammie Szmodics and a late effort from leading scorer Jonson Clarke-Harris.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of goalkeepers Daniel Gyollai and Will Blackmore, who are both in self-isolation with Mark Tyler set to be named among the substitutes once again. Gyollai’s partner has tested positive, while a member of Blackmore’s family has tested positive, so both are set to be unavailable until Saturday.

Midfielder Reece Brown has recovered from a knock at the weekend and is available for selection, but defender Ronnie Edwards remains side-lined with a thigh problem. Argyle are unlikely to make wholesale changes to their in-form side with top scorer Luke Jephcott expected to lead the line.

FROM THE GAFFER

“We are making the journey down today (Monday). It is not a journey you can do in one day, but it is the same for everyone and we will prepare as well as we can for the game. Plymouth have deployed three centre backs for most of the campaign and they are very effective in the way they play and there is no doubt it will be a tough test, but we will go there and try and build on the second half away at Gillingham and the performance on Saturday and try and pick up another three points,” Darren Ferguson said.

Posh record fifth straight win and move to the top of the table after 3-0 victory at Plymouth Argyle.

Peterborough United are now a point clear at the top of the Sky Bet League One table after a superb display at Home Park against Plymouth Argyle, previously unbeaten in nine league games, with Sammie Szmodics, Jonson Clarke-Harris and Jack Taylor on target, the last one a stunning strike from 25-yards.

Luke Jephcott tested goalkeeper Christy Pym on 11 minutes after Jack Taylor was dispossessed in midfield as Argyle registered the first effort on goal after a fairly lively start by Darren Ferguson’s men, certainly in the possession stakes.

At the other end, a clearance was charged down presenting Szmodics with a shooting chance from around 25-yards but the effort was straight at Cooper who made a routine stop. Joe Ward sent a free-kick from the edge of the box over the crossbar after Szmodics was caught late as he tried to curl a shot into the corner.

Skipper Mark Beevers was cautioned for a clumsy foul on Ennis on 21 minutes as Plymouth won a free-kick in a dangerous position. The resulting set-piece was curled straight into the wall by Grant. On 34 minutes, Posh carved out the best opportunity in the game to date as Clarke-Harris won the ball high, he raced clear, cut inside, and squared for the onrushing Szmodics, but he curled his effort over the bar.

Pym produced a fine stop to keep out a fierce drive from Camara on 39 minutes as Argyle produced a stirring finish to the first half. Within a minute of the second half starting, Posh were ahead, a long pass forward from Kent picked out Ward, he did well to beat the full-back and his low centre was tapped home by SZMODICS.

Posh doubled the lead on 63 minutes and you won’t see a better team goal from back to front, Taylor and Dembele involved, then a wonderful pass from Szmodics inside the full-back to Ward and his cross was delicious and inch-perfect for the sliding CLARKE-HARRIS who made it 2-0 and chalked up his 21st goal in all competitions in the process.

On 70 minutes, Pym produced a superb stop to keep out an ungainly header from Camara as a left-wing centre picked out the midfielder. Darren Ferguson made his first change on 72 minutes with Ethan Hamilton replacing Brown in midfield.

Substitute Adam Lewis dragged a shot wide on 83 minutes as the home side upped the tempo and began to cause problems in wide areas. On 84 minutes, Posh scored a third and it was another great effort, this time Jack TAYLOR, letting fly from distance, with the ball arcing into the top corner leaving the keeper with no chance.

Burrows had a chance late on to make it 4-0, flicking it over the defenders head and then the keeper, but it drifted wide of the far post.
