Posh v Bradford: Match Preview

20 December 2013

Posh host Bradford City at London Road on Saturday afternoon in Sky Bet League One (3pm).

Darren Ferguson's men will be looking for a fourth win in five games as Peterborough United face promotion contenders Bradford City in the final game before Christmas.

After victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers, Newport County and Tranmere Rovers, Posh will be looking for three points against the Bantams who have adjusted to life in League One quickly.

Posh welcome back Gabriel Zakuani from injury and Danny Swanson from suspension for the game, but Craig Alcock, Danny Kearns and Tommy Rowe are still sidelined with injury.

In-form front man Nahki Wells is expected to be the main threat in the Bradford team and defender Shaun Brisley is well aware of his ability.

'Nahki has scored a lot of goals and is a very good striker. I have come up against him before and we will need to defend well against him and his strike partner,' Brisley said.

Posh boss Ferguson added: 'Bradford are a good side and they have a big threat in attack with Wells and Hansen, but we will have to keep the rest of the team quiet. I have been encouraged by our recent form, we look like the team at the start of the season and long may that continue.'

Ahead of kick-off, Santa Claus will be at London Road to hand out sweets to supporters. Tickets can be purchased for the game at www.theposhtickets.com, via the 24-hour hotlline 0844 847 1934 and in person at the London Road Box Office.
