Posh v Sheffield United: Match Preview

19 August 2014

Posh host Blades in Sky Bet League One action this evening (7.30pm).

Peterborough United host Sheffield United at London Road on Tuesday evening in Sky Bet League One action (7.30pm) looking to make it three wins from three in league action.

Darren Ferguson's men have already claimed a 1-0 win at Rochdale and a 3-2 victory over MK Dons while the Blades have yet to pick up a point after defeats to Bristol City and Coventry City.

In terms of team news, Posh are without the services of Jack Baldwin (knee), Gabi Zakuani (hamstring) and Erhun Oztumer, but Joe Newell is available again after a broken toe.

Spurs loanee Kenny McEvoy won't feature after picking up a foot injury in the win over MK Dons. McEvoy has undergone a scan and the club are awaiting the results.

Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough has no new injury or suspension concerns. He may make changes after his side fell to their second successive league defeat on Saturday.

Former Posh defender Craig Alcock has played at centre back in the opening two league fixtures and is set to continue in that role.

Darren Ferguson said: 'Sheffield United are a big club and will bring a big following so it should be a great atmosphere and one that we are all looking forward to. Night games always bring that special atmosphere and tonight should be no different.

'We have spoken about how key our home form will be this season so we are determined to build on the win over MK Dons,' Ferguson said.

Supporters are reminded that the game kicks-off at 7.30pm. Ahead of kick-off, the 'Contenders', a group of first and second year dancers from the Peterborough Regional College will be performing on the pitch.
