Posh host Ipswich Town at the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday evening (7pm).
Peterborough United welcome Paul Lambert’s Ipswich Town to the Weston Homes Stadium in Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday evening (7pm) looking to build on Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra, which kept Darren Ferguson’s men very much in the promotion picture.
Goals from Sammie Szmodics and Jonson Clarke-Harris secured the three points against the Railwaymen and Posh will be going in search of a 2021 double against the Tractor Boys after a 1-0 success at Portman Road last month thanks to an own goal.
Since that defeat, Paul Lambert’s men have chalked up two wins from three including Saturday’s 2-0 success over Blackpool, which was secured thanks to goals from Alan Judge and Luke Woolfenden either side of the interval.
Posh received good news regarding the fitness of central defender Frankie Kent, who was forced off in the second half of the win over Crewe. He underwent a scan on Monday and it revealed no damage, so he is set to continue at the heart of the Posh back-line. No other injuries have been reported, so it is just Ronnie Edwards (thigh) currently on the sidelines.
Town are without the services of front man Kayden Jackson, who is still suspended following his red card against Sunderland. Lambert is getting key men back fit with new additions bringing a freshness to their squad.
FROM THE GAFFER
“I don’t think the game at Portman Road will have any bearing on Tuesday night’s fixture, in fact I would expect it to be far more open than that particular meeting. Ipswich have had some decent results of late, I watched them against Crewe and they were very good and they got a good win on Saturday so they will be confident coming here, but we have a good home record and the lads are in a good place. Frankie hasn’t done any damage to his hamstring, we got it scanned and it was fine, so it might have just been fatigue,” Darren Ferguson said.
