Posh v Bolton: Match Preview

13 November 2016

Posh host Bolton Wanderers on Sunday at the ABAX Stadium (12.15pm).

Peterborough United go in search of their fourth win in the last four games in all competitions on Sunday when they entertain Bolton Wanderers in Sky Bet League One action at the ABAX Stadium (12.15pm).

The last three games have all finished 2-1 to Grant McCann's men with Bristol Rovers, Chesham United and Barnet all defeated and in the last seven fixtures, Posh have claimed five victories.

Bolton also arrive in good form with manager Phil Parkinson being named Manager of the Month for October and striker Zach Clough collecitng the Player of the Month award.

The Posh players will wear a commemorative home shirt featuring the poppy on the day and there will be a minutes silence along with an EFL wreath laid on the pitch prior to kick-off to remember and honour all of those that have fallen in battle.

McCann knows it will be a tough test for his side, but is looking forward to the game. "We have won the last three games and we have won five of the last seven fixtures, so we are in good form and so are Bolton.

"I believe I have players in that dressing room who can handle the big games and this is a big game, it is live on Sky and against an opponent that is close to us in the league table.

"This is the start of a big month for us with games against Scunthorpe and Northampton to come. We know what we can achieve in those games. We are looking forward to it," McCann said.

The Posh boss confirmed that striker Lee Angol suffered no ill effects from the 90 minutes he got under his belt at Bolton on Tuesday evening.

"Lee is fit and raring to go. He got 90 minutes under his belt on Tuesday and if he doesn't start on Sunday, he will probably face Bournemouth in the under 23 fixture next week. Brad Inman will also play in that game," McCann added.

Jermaine Anderson is a long term injury absentee, but McCann confirmed there were no fresh injury worries in the camp.

Wanderers are set to include one-time Posh loanee Lawrie Wilson in their starting line-up, but goalkeeper Ben Alnwick is expected to be on the substitutes bench. He has only featured in the cup competitions since his move North.
