Brentford v Posh: Match Preview

25 November 2013

Peterborough United look to end four-match losing run as they head to Griffin Park on Tuesday night.

Peterborough United go in search of a first win in five league matches on Tuesday night as Darren Ferguson's men travel to Griffin Park to face in-form Brentford (7.45pm).

The Bees are currently top of the form chart and go into the game on the back of a hard-fought 0-0 draw at promotion favourites Wolverhampton Wanderers. They also beat Crewe Alexandra 5-0 in their previous league fixture at Griffin Park.

In terms of team news, Posh boss Darren Ferguson can welcome back Shaun Brisley and Nathaniel Knight-Percival from suspension and injury respectively. Joe Newell and Danny Kearns are both ruled out, while striker Britt Assombalonga has a 'chance' of being fit after missing the weekend defeat due to injury.

'It will be a very difficult game on Tuesday night at Brentford and regardless of the form we are in, that was always going to be the case. They score a lot of goals, whereas at the minute we are struggling for goals - one goal in five league fixtures is not good enough.

'We know that. We need to get back to scoring goals. We need to get that first win and end the rut we are currently in, the next two games will be tough, but we know what to expect,' Ferguson said.

The Bees could give Will Grigg a start up front after he came on as a substitute before the hour mark in the 0-0 draw at the weekend.

Posh had sold over 200 tickets in advance for the game with fans able to pay on the turnstiles on the night.
