Posh v Burnley: Match Preview

31 January 2013

Posh host Burnley in the npower Championship at London Road at London Road on Saturday (3pm).

Peterborough United entertain play-off chasing Burnley at London Road in the npower Championship on Saturday afternoon (3pm) knowing that a victory could take them within a point of safety.

Barnsley and Bristol City both picked up home wins in mid-week while Huddersfield overcame Crystal Palace 1-0. Posh were without a fixture last weekend due to Bolton Wanderers' involvement in the FA Cup.

Posh welcome back Lee Tomlin from suspension and Gabriel Zakuani from international duty with DR Congo in the African Cup of Nations. Kgosi Ntlhe and Peter Grant are long term absentees.

Darren Ferguson commented: 'It is a game that we are looking forward to. When I look back at the game at Turf Moor, there were not many positives to take from the display, so it is important that we focus on the job in hand.

'Burnley have had a decent campaign and in Charlie Austin they have a player that has scored a lot of goals, but they are far from a one-man team. I don't know who made that phrase up anyway, every team have a lot of good players and Burnley are no different,' Ferguson said.

Admission for Saturday's game is reduced to a Category C pricing structure, which means adults can watch the action from the London Road Terrace for just £15 with seated tickets available for £20. For more information, please visit www.theposhtickets.com.
