Peterborough United have been handed an away trip to Rochdale on the opening day of the season.

Darren Ferguson's men will begin the Sky Bet League One campaign with a trip to Rochdale, who were promoted from League Two last season, on Saturday 9th August.

It means plenty of travelling for Peterborough United in the opening week of the season with a Capital One Cup first round tie at Portsmouth scheduled for Tuesday 12th August.

The first home league game of the campaign will be against Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday 16th August before entertaining Sheffield United three days later.

Posh are away on Boxing Day to Johnstone's Paint final opponents Chesterfield with an away trip to Oldham Athletic on the final day of the campaign.
