Posh v Plymouth Argyle | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday night’s clash with Plymouth.

23 November 2020

Posh welcome Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday evening in Sky Bet League One action.

Peterborough United entertain Plymouth Argyle at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening (7pm) as Darren Ferguson’s men look to get back on track after two defeats in a row after a long, impressive winning run, which saw the club move to the top of the League One table.

Argyle were on the wrong end of a 5-1 defeat at Fleetwood Town at the weekend and a challenging week on the road will be boosted if they can get a result against Posh. Posh have only been beaten once in the league at home in the calendar year, Ferguson is hoping his side can end the campaign unbeaten at their home.

TEAM NEWS

Winger Joe Ward has been ruled out until Christmas after confirmation he needs a minor knee operation. Ward was forced off during the second half of the defeat to Blackpool and his knee swelled up following the 90 minutes. Nathan Thompson and Ricky-Jade Jones are still side-lined with injury.

Plymouth could include former Posh winger George Cooper in their starting line-up. Cooper has been deployed as a left-wing back for Ryan Lowe’s side but was an unused substitute in their heavy defeat at the weekend as Byron Moore continued in his position. It is highly likely that he won’t be on the change to the starting line-up.  

FROM THE GAFFER

“Plymouth have some good players and in general, have performed well at this level following their promotion. They have been good at home and found it more difficult away from home, but that can change very quickly. They have one or two players that I have managed before, including George Cooper, but it is honestly about us on Tuesday night. Yes, we look at the opposition, but we have to impose ourselves on the game and try and bounce-back from the last two games,” Darren Ferguson said.

Posh back to winning ways after a deserved three points against Plymouth Argyle.

Peterborough United bounced back from two successive league defeats with three points as a goal from Jonson Clarke-Harris secured a 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle at the Weston Homes Stadium on a night where in truth, the score-line could and perhaps should have been far more comfortable.

Sammie Szmodics had a great opportunity to find the breakthrough on 13 minutes after racing onto a Dembele pass, but his low shot was saved by the legs of Argyle goalkeeper Michael Cooper. Dembele was cautioned for a foul on 17 minutes with referee Tom Nield ignoring a similar challenge by Wootton moments earlier.

Frankie Kent tested Cooper from long-range moments later after a good turn and pass from Dembele in a tight area. Reece Brown fired wide from 25-yards on 27 minutes after being allowed to advance into a bit of space from midfield.

Opoku was shown a yellow card for a foul on Dembele before an acrobatic Clarke-Harris effort went wide of the target following a floated cross from Butler. On 37 minutes, Dembele dragged a left-foot shot wide after doing so well to beat the defender following strong initial play from Clarke-Harris.

Posh opened the scoring three minutes later, wonderful play from Dembele in the build-up, quick feet and then a clever assist for Jonson CLARKE-HARRIS who drilled a low left-foot shot into the back of the net, giving the keeper absolutely no chance.

Some good work from Dembele created a very difficult half chance for Szmodics on 54 minutes, but his header found the top of the netting. Posh were a whisker away from a second just after the hour mark as Butler lashed a left-foot drive off the outside of the post.

The visitors introduced Frank Nouble on 64 minutes to add a more physical presence in the Argyle attack. Cooper curled wide with his weaker right-foot on 68 minutes as the visitors freshened things up with a double change.

Clarke-Harris was denied by Cooper on 75 minutes and seconds later, Dembele somehow fired wide with his left-foot after ghosting past numerous defenders. Posh were forced into a change on 78 minutes with Clarke-Harris limping off to be replaced by Mo Eisa.

Posh: Pym, Butler, Beevers, Kent, Taylor, Clarke-Harris (sub Eisa 78min), Dembele, Broom, Brown, Szmodics (sub Reed 84min), Blake-Tracy. Unused subs: Gyollai, Kanu, Tasdemir, Hamilton, Mason.
