Posh v Bolton: Match Preview

21 December 2012

Posh host Bolton Wanderers at London Road on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United will be looking to make it back to back victories in the npower Championship when they entertain Bolton Wanderers at London Road on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Darren Ferguson's men defeated league leaders Cardiff City 2-1 last weekend and a win against the Trotters could take Posh off the foot of the Championship table.

Bolton defeated Charlton Athletic 2-0 at the Reebok Stadium last time out with substitute David Ngog scoring a brace in the final third of the fixture.

Posh boss Ferguson revealed that defender Nathaniel Knight-Percival is fit to play after he was forced off the field against Cardiff with an ankle injury.

'Nat has trained and is available for selection. We don't have any other fresh injury worries for the game, so it is just our long-term absentees unavailable. It was a good win at Cardiff last week, but we don't want that victory to be a one-off, we need to build on it.

'Bolton are a difficult side because they have kept a lot of the players from the Premier League. Kevin Davies is the focal point and he is tough to control, while I am sure David Ngog will be in good heart after coming off the bench to score twice.

'They normally operate with Davies up top and a midfielder just off him, but it will be hard to leave someone out who scored twice as a substitute. For us, we have trained well this week, the lads are in confident mood and we are looking forward to the game,' Ferguson said.
