Posh v Hull City | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday night’s clash with Hull City.

8 March 2021

Posh welcome Hull City to the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening (7pm).

Peterborough United entertain Grant McCann’s Hull City at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening (7pm) in Sky Bet League One action with both sides currently occupying the automatic promotion places at the top of the table.

The Tigers have won back-to-back fixtures, including Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Bristol Rovers to leapfrog Darren Ferguson’s men, who were beaten for the first time in eight games on Saturday at in-form Burton Albion.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are without the services of influential midfielder Jack Taylor due to a hamstring injury, while talented teenagers Ronnie Edwards and Flynn Clarke remain side-lined with injuries, the latter until the end of the season. The squad all tested negative in their latest round of Covid-19 testing, while the manager has not reported any fresh injuries from the weekend.

Hull have a strong squad and have welcomed back George Honeyman from injury of late to boost their attacking options. Keane Lewis-Potter could start after coming off the bench at the weekend while Dan Crowley is another pushing for a start.

FROM THE GAFFER

“I thought at the start of the season that Hull would be up there at the end of the season and to be fair they have been up there throughout the campaign so far. They have some good players, have been fairly consistent in their results and have scored a lot of goals away from home, while we have been good at home, so it will probably be a 0-0 now! We are confident, we are looking forward to the game, the lads were in good spirits on Monday, we addressed Saturday after the game and are now moving on from it,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“It’s going to be a difficult game because of the condition of the pitch, they’ve had a problem with the pitch there because of a water leak. They’re used to that pitch, they’ve been playing on it most of the season so it’s going to be a challenge for us. It’s going to be a tough game, I mean, Peterborough have been really good this season hence why they’ve been in and around the top of the league for most of it.

“It’s a club I know very well from my time there, I haven’t got a bad word to say about anybody there, there’s great people at the football club. It’s just another game for us, we’ll go there and try to perform. We’ll go there and look forward to the challenge, and hopefully we’ll get another three points,” Grant McCann said.

Hull City secure three points as 10-man Posh are beaten at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Grant McCann’s Hull City came from behind to secure a 3-1 victory at the Weston Homes Stadium, but the key moment of the game was the dismissal of midfielder Ethan Hamilton, who picked up two yellow cards in the first half from referee John Busby.

Posh opened the scoring on seven minutes and it was a fine goal in terms of its construction, Ethan Hamilton picked out Dan Butler down the left-hand side, his cross caused problems, Sammie Szmodics kept it alive and the ball fell kindly for Reece BROWN who was on hand to net his second goal of the campaign.

Joe Ward tested the experienced Matt Ingram with a cross-shot on 11 minutes as Posh continued to make the early running. The visitors levelled the scores on 20 minutes with their first effort on goal, a Honeyman free-kick was headed into the back of the net by defender BURKE.

Ethan Hamilton was cautioned for a foul on 27 minutes by referee Jon Busby, with the official irking both managers. Frankie Kent tested the reflexes of Ingram on 33 minutes after a rampaging run from centre back, the former Colchester United man seeing his fierce drive pushed around the post by the keeper.

On 41 minutes, Ethan Hamilton was shown a second yellow card for a tackle on Coyle and Posh would have to play the remaining 50 minutes with 10-men. Honeyman sliced a glorious chance wide of the target on 44 minutes as the Tigers came close to taking the lead before the interval.

Deep into stoppage time, Posh were a whisker away from re-taking the lead as Joe Ward cracked a 35-yard free-kick against the inside of the post before Clarke-Harris side-footed the rebound over the crossbar with his right-foot.

Darren Ferguson made a change at the break with Niall Mason replacing Szmodics. The visitors didn’t take long to take advantage of their numerical advantage as an Elder cross was tapped home by Keane LEWIS-POTTER from six-yards.

The Tigers added a third before the hour mark as Kent bundled into Honeyman in the box and WILKS stepped up to convert from the spot. Dembele was cautioned in stoppage time as Hull City played out the remaining minutes to secure a third straight win to extend their advantage at the top of the table.

Posh: Pym, Butler, Beevers, Kent, Thompson, Ward (sub Burrows 71min), Brown, Hamilton, Szmodics (sub Mason 46min), Dembele, Clarke-Harris (sub Jones 84min). Unused subs: Gyollai, Eisa, Reed, Kanu.
