Bradford v Posh: Match Preview

18 April 2014

Posh head to Valley Parade on Good Friday seeking a win which could confirm their play-off spot.

Peterborough United travel to Valley Parade on Good Friday evening (7.45pm) in Sky Bet League One action knowing that a victory could cement the final play-off spot.

A win against the Bantams coupled with results elsewhere could see Darren Ferguson's men secure their spot with three games remaining in the regular campaign.

The Posh boss is determined to get it done as early as possible. 'It would be great to get it done over this weekend, but we are not taking anything for granted. Bradford are a very good side, they have a lot of experience in their side and they are tough to play.

'Their home record is not the greatest and that sometimes comes with the expectation of a big crowd and the success they enjoyed last season. It should be a cracking atmosphere, a big crowd and a big pitch, so I am looking forward to the game,' Ferguson said.

The Posh boss is sweating on the fitness of Scotsman Danny Swanson who has an ankle injury. Everyone else in the squad is available for selection.

The Bantams are waiting on news of striker James Hansen who is struggling with a back complaint. Former Posh striker Aaron Mclean (hamstring) and Andy Gray (shingles) are also doubts.

Posh had sold around 300 tickets in advance for the game. Fans can pay on the turnstiles on Friday night.
