Posh v Crewe: Match Preview

7 March 2014

Posh host Crewe Alexandra at London Road in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United entertain Crewe Alexandra at London Road on Saturday afternoon looking to bounce back after successive losses in Sky Bet League One (3pm).

Darren Ferguson's men remain in the play-off places and a win over Steve Davis' men will strengthen their position in sixth place.

Defender Ben Nugent should return after a hip injury, but Nathaniel Knight-Percival is a doubt with a badly swollen eye. Kyle Vassell remains on the sidelines with a broken toe.

Ferguson said: 'Crewe are fighting for their lives and there is no getting away from it, our record against the teams in the lower half of the table is poor. This needs to change, particularly with the home fixtures we have between now and the end of the season.

'We have been very inconsistent and that needs to change. Crewe play football the right way and I am expecting it to be a similar game to the one at Sheffield United. We need to play with a faster tempo there is no doubt about that,' Ferguson said.

Crewe Asigned Scotland Under-21 winger Cameron Park on a one-month loan from Middlesbrough. Park, 21, who had a previous spell on loan in the Championship with Barnsley cut short by illness two seasons ago, is in contention to play at London Road.
