Posh v MK Dons | Match Preview

We look ahead to Saturday’s clash with MK Dons.

15 January 2021

MK Dons are the visitors to the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday.

Peterborough United are back in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday afternoon with Milton Keynes Dons providing the opposition at the Weston Homes Stadium (3pm) as Darren Ferguson’s men look to build on the thumping win over Portsmouth in the Papa John’s Trophy on Tuesday evening.

The two sides have met fairly recently, with the sides sharing the points following a 1-1 draw at stadium: mk.  The Dons also progressed into the quarter-finals of the Papa John’s Trophy following a 2-0 success at Northampton Town.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of defender Nathan Thompson, who serves a one-match ban following his red card at Lincoln City. Ironically, he missed the previous clash with the Dons due to suspension after accruing five cautions. Ronnie Edwards is unavailable as he has just come to the end of a period of self-isolation.

Ferguson has no fresh injury worries to contend with following the return to action of Joe Ward and Ricky-Jade Jones following lay-offs. The Dons strengthened their attacking options with the signing of Chelsea front man Charlie Brown and he will go straight into the squad, although it is likely he will be named among the substitutes.

Andrew Surman signed a new contract in mid-week and is expected to continue at the heart of the midfield while Warren O’Hora could make his move permanent following a successful loan stint.

FROM THE GAFFER

“There were a couple of things we didn’t do well in the game at MK and we know what we need to do to improve on that performance. They are a good side, they keep possession well and they have had some good recent results and pushed Burnley all the way in the FA Cup. I am sure they will start moving up the table quite quickly,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

I was impressed with Peterborough, I really like how they play. I watched them against Lincoln last weekend an thought they were excellent again. They've got the league's top scorer, who is in a really good vein of form and they trust him to do the business. They can play aggressive attacking football, from a manager I really know and respect. It will be a tough game, like it was at our place but if we attack it with the same mentality and intensity as we did the one before, we'll go there full of confidence,” Dons boss Russell Martin said.

Posh record comfortable 3-0 victory over Milton Keynes Dons with Sammie Szmodics netting an excellent brace.

Peterborough United swept aside Milton Keynes Dons 3-0 at the Weston Homes Stadium with Sammie Szmodics netting a brace and Jonson Clarke-Harris continuing his fine form in front of goal with the opening salvo in a comfortable afternoon for Darren Ferguson’s men.

Midfielder Jack Taylor was a whisker away from opening the scoring inside the opening five minutes as Posh made a positive start and that start was rewarded moments later as a wonderful teasing cross from Joe Ward was diverted past goalkeeper Andrew Fisher at the near post by Jonson CLARKE-HARRIS who did superbly to get in front of his man and stab the ball goal-wards.

Dan Butler drove a left-footed effort wide of the target before the visitors were forced into a change as the experienced Andrew Surman was forced off with a muscle injury, Joe Mason the chosen replacement.

Posh doubled the lead on 29 minutes and it was a wonderful goal, Siriki Dembele did well to hold off the defender after winning back possession before timing a perfect pass for the on-rushing Sammie SZMODICS, who took a touch before rounding the keeper and slotting the ball into the back of the net.

With Posh defending with 10 due a clash of heads which put Frankie Kent in need of stitches, Regan Poole cracked an effort against the crossbar from 30-yards with Beevers producing a fine tackle to prevent Mason from following in. Fraser then whistled a shot inches past the post as Posh battled with 10 as we moved towards half-time.

Pym was well placed on 52 minutes to keep out a Fraser effort before Posh had appeals for a spot-kick at the other end turned down as Dembele took a tumble in the box. Taylor was cautioned for kicking the ball away on 62 minutes.

Posh made it 3-0 on 66 minutes and it was a great move started and finished by SZMODICS who tucked home from close-range after excellent individual skill and cross into the box by Dembele. Szmodics was among those to be substituted as the game reached the 75-minute mark with Ward and Clarke-Harris also given a rest.

Posh: Pym, Beevers, Kent, Mason, Ward (sub Kanu 69min), Butler (sub Blake-Tracy 86min), Hamilton, Taylor, Dembele (sub Eisa 86min), Szmodics (sub Brown 75min), Clarke-Harris (sub Jones 68min). Unused subs: Gyollai, Burrows.

MK Dons: Fisher, Lewington, Poole, Gladwin, Fraser, Laird, Surman (sub Mason 13min), Sorensen (sub Johnson 65min), Harvie (sub Davies 76min), Soriniola, Jerome (sub Brown 76min). Unused subs: Nicholls, Williams, O’Horo.
