Posh v Doncaster Rovers | Match Preview

Posh host Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday evening.

26 April 2021

Darren Ferguson’s men welcome Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday night (7.45pm).

Peterborough United entertain Doncaster Rovers at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening in Sky Bet League One action (7.45pm) with Darren Ferguson’s men knowing that three points will secure automatic promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.

Posh were 1-0 winners at Charlton Athletic on Saturday with Jonson Clarke-Harris netting his 31st goal in all competitions and his 29th in the league to secure the success, which coupled with Lincoln City’s defeat to Hull City and just a point for Sunderland, gives Posh an opening to secure the season objective with two games to spare.

TEAM NEWS

Midfielder Reece Brown could return to the squad after missing the win at Charlton with a slight hamstring issue. He is due to train on Monday and will be assessed at that point. Christy Pym (muscle injury) is on the treatment table, but defender Ronnie Edwards came through 45 minutes in the youth team at the weekend.

The latest round of Covid-19 testing was completed on Monday morning with all tests coming back negative. Doncaster were beaten 1-0 at home by Fleetwood on Saturday and will be looking to bounce back in the first of two games with Posh in the remaining three league fixtures.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Andy Butler was a player for me at Doncaster when we won promotion and he will no doubt go on and be a successful manager. Sometimes you learn more during the tough times as a manager. They have a lot of good players and players coming back from injury so it will be a tough game for us. We know we have to perform, we need to start well, like we did on Saturday, and put in a really big performance to get the three points,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“I spoke to the players after the game and told them they needed to recover properly and focus on Tuesday. If you think the season is over then you’re mistaken because we’ve got four very tough games. You’ve got two teams fighting for promotion and one of them is virtually there. And you’ve got one fighting to stave off relegation.

“If you think your holidays are already here, you’re mistaken. These games are tough and they’re tougher than the ones you’ve already played. Peterborough are on a fantastic role but we have to go there now and try to finish the season on a positive note,” Andy Butler said.
