Notts County v Posh: Match Preview

8 August 2013

Posh head to Meadow Lane to face Notts County on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United travel to Meadow Lane on Saturday afternoon to face Notts County in Skybet League One action looking for a third successive victory in all competitions.

Darren Ferguson's men defeated Swindon Town on the opening day and followed that success up with a 5-1 victory over Colchester United in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

Notts County were beaten by Sheffield United in the first game of the season, but are into round two of the cup after a 3-2 win over Fleetwood Town. The Magpies will face Liverpool in the next round.

Posh have no fresh injury worries for the game and Ferguson is likely to stick with the same squad that has made such an impressive start to the campaign.

'The players are performing well and are keeping hold of the shirt, but they know that players who are not in the squad are desperate to be involved and they put in a good display this week in the development game.

'We have arranged development games for the next five weeks so that will keep them in good shape. We go to Notts County on Saturday and I watched them against Fleetwood. They played well and have added to their squad over the summer.

'We have a good following of fans travelling to Meadow Lane and it should be a really good atmosphere,' Ferguson said.

Posh have sold 1,200 tickets in advance for the game. Tickets are on sale until 3pm on Friday, but the game is not all-ticket and there is no price increase on the day.
