Watford v Posh: Match Preview

18 October 2012

Posh face Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon (3pm) in the npower Championship.

Peterborough United travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon to face Watford in the npower Championship seeking their third successive away victory.

After away successes at Hull City and Barnsley, Posh can make it a hat-trick of wins on the road if they can overcome Gianfranco Zola's Hornets, who have had an inconsistent start to the campaign.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson spoke to the press on Thursday ahead of the fixture and confirmed that all of his squad, with the exception of young centre back Peter Grant, is available for selection.

Midfielder Grant McCann withdrew from the Northern Ireland squad to face Portugal in mid-week due to injury, but a scan revealed there is no significant damage and he trained on Thursday afternoon.

'It is nice to have pretty much everyone available for selection and we go into the game with confidence after two wins on the road. We worked hard at Hull City to get the win and at Barnsley it was more of a comfortable success.

'Watford are a decent side, they normally play 3-5-2 and it will be a difficult test for us,' Ferguson said.

The Hornets were beaten 2-1 by Middlesbrough at Vicarage Road in their last fixture in front of their own fans despite opening the scoring inside the first minute through striker Troy Deeney.

Posh have sold nearly 1,200 tickets for the Championship fixture, but fans can pay at the turnstiles should they wish.
