Yeovil v Posh: Match Preview

19 September 2014

Posh head to Huish Park on Saturday to face Yeovil Town.

Peterborough United make the long trip to Huish Park on Saturday (3pm) to face a Yeovil side without a home league win since back in March.

The Glovers, who are managed by former Posh boss Gary Johnson, were held to a draw by Crewe Alexandra in their last fixture and have had a difficult start to life in Sky Bet League One.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson has a number of injury worries to contend with ahead of the clash. Kgosi Ntlhe remains a doubt while Michael Bostwick, Erhun Oztumer and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing are all out although the latter is due to feature in the under 21 fixture against Watford on Tuesday evening.

Defender Christian Burgess picked up a knock in the defeat to Gillingham and faces a race against time to be fit, while Jon Taylor is unlikely to feature following the ankle injury he sustained at Priestfield.

'We do have one or two injury problems, but I am not one to moan about it, we just have to get on with it. We have a few players on the way back and we don't have a midweek game for a little while too which will help.

'Yeovil have had a difficult run in front of their own fans, but that kind of run has to end somewhere. We need to make sure we are not on the receiving end. Like ourselves, they have a few injury concerns, but they have threats and we will need to play well,' Ferguson said.

Yeovil are looking to offload either Chris Weale or Artur Krysiak on loan, manager Gary Johnson has confirmed. Both goalkeepers signed over the summer on two-year deals but neither have been able to hold down a first-team place.

Johnson has now drafted in Blackburn keeper Jake Kean on loan and the 23-year-old was given the number one shirt in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Crewe.

'You're not going to have three goalkeepers not playing," Johnson told BBC Somerset. 'One will need to go out and get some football.'

Posh had sold just over 250 tickets in advance for the game and fans can pay on the turnstiles, although there is a price rise on the day.
