Posh v Walsall | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday night's game with Walsall.

26 February 2018

Posh face Walsall at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday night and tickets are availabe for the match now!

Peterborough United entertain Walsall at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday evening (7.45pm) in Sky Bet League One action with David Oldfield taking caretaker charge of the Posh side following the departure of Grant McCann on Sunday evening.

After four successive draws, Posh are six points adrift of the play-off positions but this fixture against the Saddlers is one of two games in hand that the club have over many of their rivals in the table. Walsall were beaten by promotion contenders Blackburn Rovers in their last fixture at the Banks’s Stadium.

TEAM NEWS

Posh are waiting on the fitness of defender Ryan Tafazolli after he limped out of the 1-1 draw with AFC Wimbledon due to a hamstring injury. His situation continues to be monitored. Gwion Edwards and Alex Penny are both long-term absentees while Andrew Hughes remains a doubt after missing the game at the weekend due to injury.

Former Posh attacking midfield man Erhun Oztumer is expected to line-up against his former employees. Oztumer scored against Posh earlier in the campaign and the diminutive number 10 will be a threat on Tuesday evening. Another former Posh man, Flo Cuvelier is expected to be among the substitutes.
