Posh v Burton Albion | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday evening’s clash with Burton Albion.

26 October 2020

Posh host Burton Albion in League One action on Tuesday evening.

Peterborough United welcome Jake Buxton’s Burton Albion to the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening (7pm), the second time the two sides have meet this season with this contest taking place in Sky Bet League One.

The Brewers arrive on the back of a 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon, but find themselves in the relegation zone in the fledgling League One table. Posh and Burton faced off in the EFL Trophy earlier in the campaign with the tie ending 3-3 before a penalty shoot-out success for Darren Ferguson’s men.

Posh have won five league games on the bounce and six victories in all competitions in succession following a 2-1 away win at then league leaders Hull City. Jonson Clarke-Harris and Siriki Dembele were on target at the KCOM Stadium.

TEAM NEWS

Posh attacking midfielder Sammie Szmodics has been rated as 70-30 to be fit to play (if selected) after completing two training sessions since Saturday. Szmodics has a slight hamstring concern and missed the win against the Tigers.

Ricky-Jade Jones is the only confirmed absentee with the teenager expected to be out until Christmas with a leg injury. Meanwhile, Burton are expected to be without experienced pair John Brayford and Michael Bostwick due to injury.

Niall Ennis is pushing for a start after joining on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers but Kane Hemmings was on target at the weekend so could keep his place.

A FOOT IN BOTH CAMPS

Although Michael Bostwick is sidelined due to injury, Burton do have another former Posh player in their squad in the form of Colin Daniel. Daniel created the equaliser for Hemmings against AFC Wimbledon and can be a threat with his delivery from the left.

FROM THE GAFFER

“I believe Burton are in a bit of a false position in the league table. They have some good players and they showed that when we faced them in the trophy not so long ago. I expect a lot of those players will be in their squad on Tuesday as they were quite strong against us. They have good delivery and we must not let our standards slip and that is something I have been stressing to the players since Saturday,” Darren Ferguson said.

Posh and Burton Albion share the points after four goals at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Peterborough United and Burton Albion couldn’t be separated in 90 minutes for the second time this season, this time a double from Kane Hemmings earned the Brewers a point following an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Weston Homes Stadium.

After a quiet start to proceedings, Posh found the breakthrough on 10 minutes, a volley from defender Frankie Kent from the edge of the box, superbly diverted past Kieran O’Hara via the head of the in-form Jonson CLARKE-HARRIS for his fifth goal of the campaign.

Posh could and perhaps should have been given a spot-kick on 17 minutes as Kent was sandwiched in the box by two defenders but referee Mr Howard waved the protests away. Niall Ennis saw an effort cleared pretty much from his own goal-line by Kent on 24 minutes as the Brewers manufactured some space down the right-hand channel.

Ward whistled a shot inches past the post on the half hour mark after good work in midfield from Jack Taylor. Burton levelled the scores moments later, a well worked move finished off superbly by Kane HEMMINGS.

Hemmings saw a swerving effort from 25-yards shovelled back out by Pym but the rebound was fired over the top by Lawless. Ennis screwed a shot wide a minute into stoppage time before the half-time whistle brought an end to the opening period.

Moments after the re-start, Kent smashed a header against the post from close-range after a good cross from Ward. Posh were awarded a spot-kick seconds later as Beevers was upended in the box, Clarke-Harris saw his spot-kick parried by O’Hara but WARD was there to follow-up against his favourite opposition.

Beevers produced a superb block to deny Hemmings after the striker had got in behind the Posh back-line following an excellent pass from Lawless. On the hour mark, Burton drew themselves level again, the initial effort cracked against the post, but HEMMINGS was there to tuck home the rebound from close-range via the inside of the post.

Ward saw a freekick superbly kept out by O’Hara on 62 minutes after a foul on Dembele. Ward curled another free-kick inches past the upright five minutes later after Dembele was upended yet again.

Ward cracked another free-kick over the wall on 75 minutes, this time the crossbar came to the rescue for the visitors with substitute Broom unable to keep his header down. Burton struck the crossbar themselves on 79 minutes as a fierce drive from Edwards rebounded back off the woodwork, Pym actually getting a fingertip to it, a stunning save.

Substitute Broom squandered a fine opportunity to put Posh in front on 83 minutes after racing onto a Dembele pass but he skied his effort over the crossbar with only the keeper to beat.

Posh: Pym, Butler, Thompson (sub Mason 82min), Beevers, Kent, Taylor, Clarke-Harris, Dembele, Brown, Szmodics (sub Broom 75min), Ward. Unused subs: Gyollai, Eisa, Clarke, Reed, Hamilton.
