Bristol City v Posh: Match Preview

12 September 2013

Posh head to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City on Saturday (3pm) in Skybet League One.

Peterborough United travel to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City in Skybet League One on Saturday afternoon (3pm) and Darren Ferguson has a fully fit squad to choose from for the fixture.

Captain Tommy Rowe is winning his fitness race and is set to return to the squad after missing the 2-2 draw at Crewe Alexandra with an ankle injury.

Joe Newell continued his return to fitness by playing 80 minutes in the friendly at Cambridge United in mid-week and is in contention should Ferguson choose to alter his starting line-up.

Bristol City have enjoyed wins at Ashton Gate in cup competitions with Crystal Palace and Bristol Rovers both defeated, but they have yet to win in the league in front of their own supporters.

Boss Darren Ferguson knows that despite recent form in the league at home, they will prove difficult opponents.

'I fully expect Bristol City to be there or thereabouts at the end of the season. They have some good players. Sam Baldock is a good player, he has excellent movement and Bristol City have done well to keep hold of him.

'Our away results have been good, we need to keep that going. I have watched the draw with Crewe back on a couple of occasions and we played well, it was just a case of giving two sloppy goals away and we need to improve defensively,' Ferguson said.

Posh have sold over 200 tickets in advance for the game with admission rising on the day.
