Posh v Blackburn: Match Preview

16 November 2012

Peterborough United entertain Blackburn Rovers at London Road on Saturday (5.20pm).

Peterborough United entertain Henning Berg's Blackburn Rovers at London Road on Saturday afternoon with the game live on Sky Sports (5.20pm).

Darren Ferguson's men will be looking to halt a three-match losing run while Berg is looking for his first victory in charge of the club, who were in the Premier League last term.

Ferguson, who faced the press on Thursday, said: 'Blackburn were in the Premier League last term and have a talented squad, so we know that it will be a difficult game. We have lost the last three games, but I have faith in the squad to turn it around and we are looking forward to the game.

'In our last fixture with Crystal Palace, we didn't really deserve to get anything from the match, we sat too deep and didn't keep the ball, We have worked hard this week on possession and how we can hurt Blackburn,' Ferguson said.

Posh are sweating on the fitness of Tommy Rowe and Mark Little who are both rated as 50-50 to be fit for the clash. Little has a hamstring injury, while Rowe has been struggling with an ankle knock. Peter Grant and Kgosi Ntlhe are long-term absentees due to injury.

Ferguson confirmed that central defender Gabriel Zakuani and striker Emile Sinclair will be available for selection. Tyrone Barnett will not be considered for selection.

Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes scored twice on international duty for Scotland in Luxemburg this week and is likely to be partnered by Portuguese international Nuno Gomes in attack.

There will be one-minute of applause prior to kick-off for Keith Ripley, who sadly passed away earlier this month.
