Posh v Walsall: Match Preview

14 February 2014

Posh host Walsall at London Road on Friday 14th February (7.45pm) in Sky Bet League One action.

Peterborough United go in search of back to back home league wins when they entertain play-off contenders Walsall at London Road on Friday 14th February (7.45pm).

The Valentines night meeting with the Saddlers was brought forward 24 hours following the scheduling of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Southern Section Area final against Swindon Town at the County Ground on Monday evening.

Manager Darren Ferguson has been busy in the loan market this week with Josh McQuoid and Ben Nugent joining from AFC Bournemouth and Cardiff City respectively. They go straight into the squad for the meeting with the Saddlers.

Jack Baldwin, a transfer deadline day signing from Hartlepool, is eligible after completing his two-match suspension, but experienced midfielder Grant McCann remains on the sidelines with a thigh injury.

A big win on Friday could move Posh into fifth place and in turn extend the advantage from seventh placed Walsall to five points with a game in hand.

'It is an important game for us. We know what a win could do and I said after the victory over Leyton Orient last week, that those three points was just a small step in the right direction. We need to keep that going.

'In normal circumstances, I would be saying this is a going to be a good attractive game of football, but we know the pitch will be heavy so we have to play football in the right areas,' Ferguson said.

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