Tranmere v Posh: Match Preview

22 August 2013

Posh head to Prenton Park to face Tranmere Rovers on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United go to Prenton Park on Saturday (3pm) looking for a fourth successive Skybet League One victory with Ronnie Moore's Tranmere Rovers providing the opposition.

The club can equal a 52-year-old club record if they can clinch the three points, but boss Darren Ferguson insists that Tranmere will be a tough test for his side.

'I have never had an easy time at Tranmere either as a player or a manager, it is always a really tough place to go and Saturday will be no different. They have some really experienced players in Andy Robinson and Jason Koumas and Prenton Park provides a good atmosphere.

'They haven't had the best of starts to the campaign, but last season they got off to a flyer and fell away. For us, we know that the performance level needs to improve and the lads have been working hard on the training ground.

'I am tempted to make changes. Mark Little, Danny Swanson, Nathaniel Knight-Percival and Jack Payne are all in contention for a starting berth and I will have a difficult decision to make because we have won our matches,' Ferguson said.

Midfielder Joe Newell is unavailable, but is due to feature in a reserve team fixture next week. Posh have no other injury worries to contend with.

At 3pm on Friday, Posh had sold 220 tickets for the game. The match is not all-ticket.
