Chesterfield v Posh: Match Preview

5 February 2016

Posh head to the Proact Stadium on Saturday to face Chesterfield.

Peterborough United travel to the Proact Stadium to face Chesterfield in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) and Graham Westley's men are likely to be backed by over 500 supporters at the fixture with over 450 sold in advance by 10am on Friday.

Tickets remain on sale until 3pm on Friday at www.theposhtickets.com, via the Ticketmaster hotline 0844 847 1934* and in person at the ABAX Stadium Box Office.

The Posh boss is without the services of defender Gabi Zakuani, midfielder Jermaine Anderson and striker Joe Gormley due to injury but Adil Nabi is available after missing the fixture at West Bromwich Albion due to the terms of his transfer from the Hawthorns.

New signing Tom Nichols could make his debut after completing 75 minutes for the reserves at St Neots on Tuesday evening. Harry Toffolo should recover from his knock to feature.

"When we played Chesterfield at home, Danny Wilson had just been appointed and was sitting in the stands. He has made a difference at the club. We will find a very motivated home team, but we will try and make sure we stamp our game on them rather than the other way round, " Westley said.

The home side were busy on transfer deadline day. They signed Bradford City midfielder Gary Liddle, ex-Sheffield United midfielder Connor Dimaio and Burnley defender Tom Anderson.


Liddle, 29, made 61 league appearances for the Bantams and has joined for an undisclosed fee. Dimaio, 20, was a free agent after being released by the Blades after making five appearances for the club.


Anderson, 22, who is yet to make his Clarets debut, has joined on loan until the end of the season.
