Posh v Coventry: Match Preview

24 March 2016

Posh host Coventry City at the ABAX Stadium on Friday evening.

Peterborough United entertain Coventry City at the ABAX Stadium on Good Friday (7.45pm) in Sky Bet League One action with Graham Westley's men looking to build on last Saturday's 2-1 victory at Doncaster Rovers.

The Sky Blues are positioned just outside of the play-off zone after a disappointing run of form while Posh are 10 points from sixth.

Westley is without the services of defenders Harry Toffolo, Michael Smith, Kgosi Ntlhe, Gabi Zakuani and Martin Samuelsen who are are all away on international duty. Jermaine Anderson and Joe Gormley are longer-term absentees.

Coventry are without the services of striker Adam Armstrong, midfielder James Maddison and defender Jack Stephens who are away on international duty.

Manager Westley said: "We still believe there is plenty to play for. You want to win every game you play and we want a strong finish to set us for next season. We know that our home form has not been good of late and we know that needs to improve.

"The support has been fantastic this season and we want to reward those supporters between now and the end of the campaign. We are looking forward to the game. It won't be the game that Sky thought they were getting, but it will be a competitive one.

"We are missing some good players tomorrow, but we still have many good ones to select from and I am looking forward to seeing them perform," Westley added.

Coventry have hinted at a loan signing prior to the game but nothing had been confirmed at the time of writing this preview.
