Shrewsbury v Posh: Match Preview

26 September 2016

Posh head to the Greenhaus Meadow to face Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday night.

Peterborough United are back in Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday night when they travel to the Greenhaus Meadow to face Shrewsbury Town (7.45pm).

Posh have scored eight goals in their last two visits to the stadium including a 4-3 win when Grant McCann was in caretaker charge - Jon Taylor netting a 90th minute winner after the hosts had come back from 3-0 down to level the scores a minute from time.

McCann is expected to name an unchanged side for the trip after confirming no fresh injury worries at the pre-match press conference.

"I haven't got any new injuries in the camp and the players look fit and raring to go. The reason I brought Ben Mackenzie back to the football club to look after the fitness side of things is because I wanted the players to be able to play Saturday, Tuesday without any issue and I am confident that is the case now.

"We are looking forward to the game. I know the Shrewsbury manager Micky Mellon, he has an experienced number two as well and they have some good players, but I am backing my lads to go there and put in a good performance," McCann said.

The Posh boss is without the long-term casualties Lee Angol, Brad Inman and Jermaine Anderson, but the former pair are back on the training ground and stepping up their rehabiliation with physiotherapist Jon Chatfield.

Shrewsbury are without Ivan Toney after his red card in their 1-1 draw at AFC Wimbledon at the weekend. The striker was dismissed late on after collecting two yellow cards.

Gary Deegan returns from suspension after missing the trip to Kingsmeadow having accumulated five yellow cards. Right-back Joe Riley is still struggling with a knee injury which has seen him miss the last two games.

Tickets are priced at £20 for adults, £15 for seniors (65+), disabled, students (with a valid NUS card) and young adults (19-21), £8 for under 19s and £6 for under 12s. Juniors under 8 will be admitted FREE of charge.

The game is not all-ticket, but fans will only be able to pay cash only at the Pro Vision North Stand. Just under 100 had been sold at the time of writing.
