Gillingham v Posh: Match Preview

22 January 2016

Posh take on promotion candidates Gillingham at the MEMS Priestfield Stadium on Saturday.

Peterborough United travel to Gillingham in Sky Bet League One action on Saturday (3pm) with manager Graham Westley expected to include new signings Harry Toffolo and Adil Nabi in his squad

The pair completed moves to the ABAX Stadium on Thursday with Toffolo agreeing a loan switch from Norwich City and Nabi penning a three and a half year deal at the club following his move from West Bromwich Albion.

Posh are unbeaten in 2016 after wins over Sheffield United and Preston North End and a 0-0 draw with Southend United at the ABAX Stadium last weekend.

The Posh boss is without the services of Gabi Zakuani, Joe Gormley and Jermaine Anderson, but Kgosi Ntlhe and Michael Bostwick could be involved.

Westley said on Gillingham: “They play a similar system, they are developing young player, youth there strategy and they have had good success.


“Our club has got a long tradition of playing with young teams, developing young players, playing an attacking game and using a usual shape and causing people plenty of problems. Our boys are very familiar with the system, it’s deep rooted into the club and it’s up to us to go there and really attack the game this weekend.”


Gills star Bradley Dack has been linked with a move to Bristol City in the last few days, but the club have denied he is set to make the move to Ashton Gate.


Posh have sold over 250 tickets in advance of the game and fans are able to pay on the turnstiles.
