Scunthorpe v Posh: Match Preview

2 April 2015

Posh travel to Glanford Park on Good Friday to face Scunthorpe United (3pm).

Peterborough United begin the busy Easter period with an away Sky Bet League One fixture at Scunthorpe United on Good Friday (3pm).

The Iron have slipped down the league table in recent weeks, but their run of fixtures has included a number of tricky away games and they have five of their remaining seven fixtures at home in the run-in.

Posh boss Dave Roberstson welcomes back Gabriel Zakuani from international duty and Ricardo Santos from suspension for the clash while several other players are pushing for a start after impressing in the development win over AFC Bournemouth.

Harry Anderson, Marcus Maddison, Aaron Mclean, Alan Sheehan, James Pearson, Harry Beautyman and David Norris all featured in that fixture and did their chances of a recall to the first team no harm at all.

'I have some big decisions to make,' Robertson said. 'A lot of players are banging on the door at the minute and that is what I want. I want options. All of the players are available for selection apart from long term absentees Jermaine Anderson and Jack Baldwin and that gives me a selection headache.

'The lads have prepared well this week and we are looking forward to the game. Traditionally, the Easter period is a key one and I suspect this year will be no different, there will be a good crowd and I know that the Posh fans are travelling in big numbers.'

Grant McCann is a former Scunthorpe player, just like striker Luke Williams, who arrived on-loan from Middlesbrough last week. McCann has fond memories of his time at Glanford Park: 'I loved my time at Scunthorpe. It was a real family club and going into the Championship and staying there with a club with such a small budget and fanbase was an amazing achievemen.

'I’m looking forward to going back, but I’ll say hello to a few people when I get there at 1pm and 15 minutes later it will be all business. I did an interview with the Scunthorpe programme people a few weeks ago when I tipped them to have a chance of making the play-offs so I don’t know what’s happened to the them over the last nine games or so. I hope they get out of trouble, but for me it’s all about helping Peterborough,' McCann told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire this week.


Posh sold out of their initial allocation of 600 and fans are now advised to pay on the day at Glanford Park.
