Peterborough United travel to London this evening to face AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League One action.
Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough United will look to bounce back from Saturday’s defeat at Bradford City this evening as they travel to AFC Wimbledon (7.45pm) in Sky Bet League One action.
A victory over the Dons could see Posh leapfrog Doncaster Rovers into the final play-off spot in the league table, but they will need to be at their best, Doncaster themselves were beaten 2-0 by Wally Downes men at the weekend.
Posh are without the services of defender Josh Knight and midfielder Siriki Dembele but both players are back on the training ground and making good progress from their injuries. Neither will be available against Coventry City at the weekend.
Rod McDonald could be in contention after being out with a groin injury and Steve Seddon is fine after ending Saturday’s game with a hamstring strain. However, tonight’s game will come too soon for Kwesi Appiah’s return.
FROM THE GAFFER
“Every game that we play now is a difficult game because teams are fighting for vital points at either end of the table. Wimbledon have improved since they changed their formation to three at the back and they had a good win at the weekend. I may look to freshen up the team, we have good options particularly in attacking areas,” Darren Ferguson said.
FROM THE OPPOSITION
“Peterborough have got good players and they are a footballing team. Charlton and Doncaster are very similar teams. Peterborough will get on the ball and they are quite inventive. They have players who can unlock defences, but we are prepared for that. We know what they’ve got, their strengths, and hopefully we can combat their weaknesses,” AFC
Wimbledon assistant manager Glyn Hodges said.
The game is not all-ticket, there is no price rise on the evening and the fans can gain access at the turnstiles. Over 220 tickets have been sold in advance.
MAN IN THE MIDDLE
The match referee is Ollie Yates.
Posh will be in all white for the fixture.
