Shrewsbury v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Saturday’s Sky Bet League One fixture.

28 January 2021

Posh travel to Shrewsbury in League One action on Saturday (3pm).

Peterborough United will be looking to continue their current good run of form when they travel to Steve Cotterill’s Shrewsbury Town on Saturday in Sky Bet League One action (3pm), but manager Darren Ferguson knows it will be a tough proposition with the Shrews in excellent form themselves since Christmas.

The Shrews have had games postponed due to Covid-19 outbreaks including to their manager Cotterill who was hospitalised earlier this year. Posh go into the game off the back of a 0-0 draw with Bristol Rovers and sit third in the League One table.

TEAM NEWS

Posh welcome back Joe Ward from a muscular injury but central defender Ronnie Edwards is not set to travel. He could feature for the under 18s at Gillingham on Saturday alongside Flynn Clarke with the pair set to start the Papa John’s Trophy tie at Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday evening.

Shrewsbury are expected to hand Nathanael Ogbeta his debut after the left-back arrived from Manchester City earlier this week. The Shrews were due to face Burton Albion on Tuesday evening, but the game was called off because of positive cases of Covid-19 within the Albion camp.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Shrewsbury have done very well since Steve has come into the club, they play a similar system to the one we have of late and they are good defensively. They have had a few games postponed because of Covid-19 and I know that Steve was in hospital earlier this month, so I hope he is on the mend and back to full health as soon as possible. For ourselves, we have Joe Ward back and that means we have good options at wing-back and touch wood, across the whole squad we have good depth,” Darren Ferguson said.

Shrews Condemn Posh To Defeat

Posh beaten 2-0 at the Montgomery Waters Meadow as Shrewsbury Town take home all three points.

Peterborough United were sunk by two goals in the second half by home debutant Harry Chapman as Darren Ferguson’s men’s under par performance ended in a 2-0 defeat in Sky Bet League One action.

Siriki Dembele had a chance inside the opening three minutes after a driven Jack Taylor pass, the former Grimsby Town man took a good first touch, but it bounced at an awkward height to hook goalwards, keeper Sarkic doing well in the end to block the volley.

At the other end, the post came to the rescue for Posh as a Harry Chapman strike, which was going well wide, was diverted onto the foot of the woodwork by team-mate Dan Udoh before the ball was hacked clear.

Joe Ward, back in the side after injury, sent a 30-yard effort wide of the target as the game reached the 20-minute mark.  Josh Vela flashed a shot wide from distance on the half hour mark as Posh struggled to clear following a frustrating spell in the game where both sides struggled to put consistent moves together.

Posh were dealt a blow just before the break with Jack Taylor limping out of the action, Reece Brown his replacement. Udah saw a snap-shot comfortably dealt with by Pym moments after the re-start with neither side making a change in personnel at the interval.

On 50 minutes, the home side took the lead as debutant Harry CHAPMAN fired home from the edge of the area with his left-foot as Posh failed to clear. Clarke-Harris guided a header over the top from a driven Ward cross on 53 minutes.

Posh made a triple change on 67 minutes with Jones, Kanu and Eisa replacing Mason, Clarke-Harris and Szmodics. Eisa sent a free-kick straight at Sarkic after Dembele was felled following a decent run on 75 minutes.

Hamilton drilled a shot wide from 25-yards as the game entered the final 10 minutes at the Montgomery Waters Meadow Stadium. The hosts doubled the lead on 86 minutes and it was CHAPMAN again, twisting and turning before drilling a powerful shot into the net.
