Walsall v Posh: Match Preview

18 November 2013

Posh travel to the Banks's Stadium on Monday evening for a televised Sky Bet League One encounter (7.45pm).

Peterborough United have the opportunity to close the gap on Leyton Orient as Darren Ferguson's men travel to face Walsall on Monday evening in a televised Sky Bet League One encounter (7.45pm).

Following Orient's defeat at the hands of Preston North End on Saturday, Posh have the chance to reduce the gap to just three points with a victory over the Saddlers.

Danny Kearns, Jack Payne and new signing Kyle Vassell are in the squad after recovering from injury, while Tommy Rowe still has a chance of making the trip. Gabi Zakuani has recovered from illness.

Nathaniel Knight-Percival has an ankle injury and remains sidelined while Lee Tomlin serves the final match of his suspension.

Walsall boss Dean Smith has no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the game. Victory for the Saddlers would move them to within one point of the play-off places.

Ferguson said: 'Walsall are a good side, they were very unlucky not to make the play-offs last term and they have made a decent start to this season. We are obviously looking to get our league form back on track after two cup wins.'

The game is televised live on Sky Sports. Posh have sold over 150 tickets in advance for the game, but fans are able to pay on the turnstiles.
