Posh host league leaders Bristol City at the ABAX Stadium on Friday night in front of the live TV cameras.

Peterborough United entertain Steve Cotterill's Bristol City at the ABAX Stadium on Friday night with the game televised by Sky Sports (7.45pm).

Darren Ferguson's men could move to within six points of the league leaders with a victory.

The Robins have lost their last two league fixtures to promotion rivals Preston North End and Swindon Town, but have had a very successful start to the campaign.

Posh completed the loan signing of Craig Mackail-Smith from Brighton and Hove Albion on a one-month deal this week and he is likely to partner Aaron Mclean who made his second debut against Swindon Town last weekend.

The pair scored a combined total of 183 goals between 2007 and 2011, helping Posh to three promotions.

Posh could also be boosted by the return of Marcus Maddison who has a chance of making his return from injury after four weeks on the sidelines. Jack Baldwin and Jon Taylor are the only injury absentees.

Bristol City signed Leeds United striker Matt Smith ahead of the loan deadline and allowed Wes Burns to join Oxford United. Mark Little will be making his first return to London Road with his new club following his summer move.

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