Leeds v Posh: Match Preview

11 March 2013

Posh travel to Elland Road to face Leeds United on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

Peterborough United can move out of the relegation zone in the npower Championship table if Darren Ferguson's men can take all three points from the fixture against Leeds United at Elland Road on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).

Following a three-match unbeaten run, which saw a superb away victory at Blackburn Rovers, Posh can strengthen their bid to stave off relegation and this game is the 'game in hand' for Ferguson's men.

Posh have no fresh injury worries to contend with ahead of the game, so Davide Petrucci, Alex Pritchard and Peter Grant remain on the sidelines. Scott Wootton is out for the rest of the campaign with a hamstring injury.

Leeds are expected to name an unchanged line-up once again and go into the clash on the back of a five-match unbeaten run, which included a 2-2 draw at promotion contenders Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Ferguson said: 'The simple equation is that if we win, we are out of the bottom three and that is a big incentive for everyone at the football club. I am looking forward to it, the players are looking forward it and it should be a cracking game.

'It is a big pitch and we have done well away from home this season with excellent wins at Cardiff, Hull, Blackburn and of course the win at Millwall. It is the business end of the season now and we have the character in the dressing room to be up for the challenge,' Ferguson said.

Posh have sold 153 tickets in advance for the game (up to 1.30pm on Monday), but fans can pay on the turnstiles with no price increase on the evening.

Posh will be in red and black at Elland Road.
