AFC Wimbledon v Posh | Match Preview

Posh make their first trip to the new Plough Lane on Wednesday night.

1 December 2020

Posh back in League One action on Wednesday evening with a trip to AFC Wimbledon.

Peterborough United look to bounce back from the weekend Emirates FA Cup second round defeat to Chorley on Wednesday evening when Darren Ferguson takes his side to the new Plough Lane to face AFC Wimbledon in Sky Bet League One action (6pm).

The Dons may fall into Tier 2 in the Government’s Coronavirus strategy, however, they will not have fans inside their stadium for the game. AFC Wimbledon have had a busy spell with four games within the last eight games which included progress and elimination in the competition over the weekend.

TEAM NEWS

Posh welcome back striker Jonson Clarke-Harris from an ankle injury while experienced defender Nathan Thompson is also available after a muscle injury. Striker Ricky-Jade Jones continues his rehabilitation and is set to return ahead of Christmas while winger Joe Ward is unlikely to feature before the festive period following a knee operation.

The Dons could rotate their squad after a hectic schedule, but midfielder Alex Woodyard could feature against his former employers. The former Posh skipper has settled into life quickly at the club and will be relishing the chance to face his ex-teammates.

HISTORY NOT ON OUR SIDE

Whether at the old Plough Lane or Kingsmeadow, the Dons have never lost at home to Peterborough in a league match.  Rhys Bennett was dismissed late on in a recent defeat, while Posh carved out a host of chances last season but were undone by a solitary Joe Pigott strike.

FROM THE GAFFER

“The players who were in the starting line-up on Saturday were in on Sunday to go through the match because I didn’t want to leave it any longer. We have spoken about the game, but we have to move on now and focus on what is in front of us. We have back to back away games and we need to find more consistency in our performances but in our last league game we put in a good display against Plymouth and we mustn’t forget that,” Darren Ferguson said.
