Fleetwood v Posh: Match Preview

5 February 2015

Peterborough United make the long trip north to face Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

Peterborough United travel to Highbury on Saturday to face Fleetwood Town in Sky Bet League One action (3pm) looking to make it three wins on the spin.

Darren Ferguson's men go into the clash on the back of victories against Notts County and Yeovil and know that maximum points against the Cod Army could move them closer to the play-off positions.

Posh actually moved up two places without playing in the last two days and boss Ferguson joked that the key to success was 'not playing'.

'It just shows how tight the league is that we moved up a couple of places without actually playing a game. Maybe that is the secret, not playing any fixtures! In all seriousness, it is a very tight league this year and two or three wins can lift you right into the mix.

'Fleetwood will be tough opponents. They have been a bit of a fairytale story with the success they have enjoyed in the last 10 seasons. They have enjoyed a lot of promotions and are more than holding their own in League One.

'They have a good squad, you only have to look at the players on the bench to know that, and they have an excellent manager. It should be a game played on a decent surface and it is a game that we are very much looking forward to,' Ferguson said.

The Posh boss is keen to play the same side against Fleetwood, but is waiting on the fitness of three key personnel. Christian Burgess, Joe Newell and Kyle Vassell are all doubts but Ferguson is confident they will be fit.

Ben Alnwick and Jon Taylor are expected to return for the Valentine's Day meeting with Rochdale.

Posh had sold over 200 tickets in advance of the game with tickets on sale until 12pm on Friday. It is not all-ticket, but the price rises £2 on the day. You can purchase tickets at www.theposhtickets.com
