Posh v Stevenage: Match Preview

21 November 2013

Posh host Stevenage at London Road on Saturday (3pm) in Sky Bet League One action.

Peterborough United face Stevenage at London Road on Saturday (3pm) looking to bounce back after three successive Sky Bet League One defeats.

Darren Ferguson's men were defeated 2-0 by Walsall in front of the live Sky TV cameras on Monday evening and the Posh boss believes his side have the ability to respond when they face Graham Westley's men.

Posh welcome Lee Tomlin back from suspension while captain Tommy Rowe is also in the squad after an injury lay-off. Nathaniel Knight-Percival is pushing for a return after a spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

Ferguson said: 'I have watched the game back two or three times from Monday and it was a very poor performance, there is no way of getting away from that, but we have to look forward and we have a home game with Stevenage to look forward to.

'It is a case of taking each game as it comes. We had a meeting on Tuesday morning and the lads have looked sharp in training, but there have been times this season when that has been the case and it has not been transferred to a match day. I know the ability in the squad and I am confident that we can get back to the consistency we showed earlier in the campaign.

'Lee Tomlin is back in the squad after suspension and I am sure he will feel that he owes everybody a performance. Every club would miss Lee Tomlin - he is the best player in the division in my opinion and has been a big miss for us.

'Stevenage are a well-organised side who work extremely hard for each other and their manager. They have picked up some decent results of late including a win over Leyton Orient in the cup with 10-men, so we know what they are all about,' Ferguson said.

Tickets are on sale for the match at www.theposhtickets.com, via the 24-hour hotline 0844 847 1934 and in person at the London Road Box Office.

Posh are supporting the Kick it Out campaign and ahead of the game, representatives of a local club will be walking out of the tunnel with the Kick it Out message.
