Posh back in league action at the Weston Homes Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Peterborough United return to Sky Bet Championship action on Wednesday night (7.45pm) as league leaders AFC Bournemouth visit the Weston Homes Stadium with the Cherries currently two points clear at the summit ahead of Tuesday night’s games.

Darren Ferguson’s men have picked up seven out of 12 points at home so far this season with victories against Derby County and Birmingham City and a point against Cardiff City. The Cherries have amassed 21 points so far including the weekend win over Luton Town with Dominic Solanke leading the way in the scorer charts.

TEAM NEWS

Siriki Dembele has ‘a chance’ of being fit for the game after a scan revealed no damage o his knee after he was forced to leave the pitch in the final moments of the defeat to Coventry City in obvious pain following an attempted tackle.

Jonson Clarke-Harris is still in the appeal stage of his four-match ban so should be given the all-clear to start, but defender Mark Beevers, midfielder Joel Randall and strikers Jack Marriott and Ricky-Jade Jones are on the side-lines.

Bournemouth have a squad full of Premier League experience and they have players that are still not back in their 18 like Lewis Cook who is battling back from a knee injury. David Brooks has not been a regular either while Junior Stanislas has also spent time on the side-lines.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Scott Parker has a clear identity, you know his teams will like to get the ball down and play and they have made an excellent start to the season. This is a game that everybody should be looking forward too. We have been very good at home this season, we are probably three points short of where we should be from the home games, but I have been pleased with our performances in front of our supporters and we have back to back home games now before the break,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“I saw them against West Brom as well at home a little while ago and thought they were unlucky on the night. They scored late West Brom, but they showed good bits about them. They’ve had some poor results as well, this is part and parcel of a newly promoted team.

“I have seen bits that we can’t take for granted, this is a team that have just come into this division and along the way are going to be learning different parts and keep improving, even from the poor results. Good manager, it’s going to be a tough place to go,” Scott Parker said.

Excellent defensive display earns Posh a point from a goalless draw against league leaders.

Peterborough United produced an excellent defensive display to earn a point against league leaders AFC Bournemouth at the Weston Homes Stadium as Darren Ferguson’s men continued their good form in front of their own supporters.

Goalkeeper Dai Cornell made a brave stop to deny Manchester City loanee Morgan Rogers on 13 minutes, the shot-stopper perhaps making the save with his head as it took him a little while to pick himself up afterwards.

Ryan Christie volleyed over from 20-yards on 19 minutes after more good trickery from David Brooks down the right hand side. A swift counter attack from Posh nearly yielded the first goal on 26 minutes as a fizzing Harrison Burrows right-foot cross was attacked by Jorge Grant, but he couldn’t direct his effort towards goal because of the attentions of Gary Cahill.

Jack Taylor sent an effort from fully 35-yards inches past the upright on 36 minutes after Posh took a quick free-kick following another foul on Dembele. Dai Cornell was at full-stretch to keep out a low Christie effort at the other end as the Cherries found some space in a decent area.

Brooks skied an effort over the bar from a well worked corner kick on 49 minutes as the Cherries made a positive start to the second period. Cornell was well placed to catch a fierce Solanke effort on 57 minutes

Both sides made changes on the hour mark with Joe Ward and Conor Coventry introduced by Darren Ferguson, Dembele and Taylor those withdrawn. Sammie Szmodics replaced Grant five minutes later as Posh shuffled their pack for the final time. Travers made a routine stop to keep out a bouncing Clarke-Harris free-kick from range on 70 minutes.

Burrows was cautioned for a foul on 80 minutes by referee Andy Woolmer who reached for his pocket for the first time in the evening. Solanke fired over on the turn after a bit of pinball in the box moments later.

Solanke headed over from a corner as the game moved into a surprising six minutes of added time.

Posh: Cornell, Edwards, Butler, Thompson, Kent, Taylor (sub Coventry 61min), Clarke-Harris, Dembele (sub Ward 61min), Grant (sub Szmodics 65min), Burrows, Norburn. Unused subs: Blackmore, Knight, Poku, Tomlinson.
