Stevenage v Posh: Match Preview

21 February 2014

Peterborough United travel to Stevenage in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

Peterborough United travel to Stevenage in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) looking for their second successive league away victory.

Darren Ferguson's men were 2-1 winners at Leyton Orient in their last league fixture on the road. Earlier this week, Posh reached Wembley Stadium after a penalty shoot-out success over Swindon Town in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The Posh boss is hoping that euphoria can help the club's league form: 'It has been a good week at the club and the lads are obviously in good spirits going into the game at Stevenage on Saturday.

'However, we are not taking any game lightly. We take each game as it comes. Stevenage will be difficult opposition. They will provide a physical edge and they will keep going from the first whistle to the last.

'I watched them first half on Tuesday night at Leyton Orient. They were not really in it in the first period and credit to Orient because they played well, but in the second half they changed things around and gave it a right go.

'They can operate with a number of formations, just like we can and it is a game that should be a good one. I have options in my team selection with four players back available after missing the win at Swindon because they were cup-tied, so I have decisions to make,' Ferguson said.

The only injury worries relates to Jack Payne, who has been suffering with a slight groin injury. That area was scanned on Thursday just to be on the safe side, but he could still be fit for the weekend.

Conor Washington, Nicky Ajose, Ben Nugent and Jack Baldwin are all available and come back into the squad.

Posh are expected to be backed by a sell-out following of over 1,300 supporters at Stevenage.
