Posh v Stevenage

A look ahead to the Sky Bet League One clash between Posh and Stevenage at the Weston Homes Stadium on Wednesday evening (8pm).

Peterborough United welcome Stevenage to the Weston Homes Stadium on Wednesday evening in Sky Bet League One action (8pm) with Darren Ferguson’s men going into the game on the back of five straight wins in all competitions including four in the league. 

The game with Stevenage will be televised live by Sky Sports with Posh winning previous two games on the box, against Derby County on New Years Day and at Blackpool in the semi-final of the Bristol Street Motors Trophy.

Opponents Stevenage have enjoyed a superb season to date under Steve Evans, occupying the final play-off spot following promotion from Sky Bet League Two last term. They have a number of former Posh players within their ranks and within their management team.


Striker Jacob Wakeling is making good progress from an ankle injury and is back out on the grass, while teenage defender James Dornelly is also nearing a return to fitness. Jeando Fuchs and Will Blackmore remain longer term absentees. 

As for the visitors, midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey is a doubt after he missed the home game against Fleetwood. Evans could be tempted to freshen up his midfield, with Nick Freeman in contention to start following Saturday's appearance as a half-time substitute.

Elliott List will provide Evans with a useful option off the bench after he returned from injury to gain some valuable minutes at the weekend.


Jamie Reid

Jamie Reid is enjoying the most prolific campaign of his career to date with 21 goals in all competitions. The 29-year-old is an instinctive finisher and a scorer of all types of goals. After coming through the ranks at Exeter City, it was arguably his spell at Torquay United that caught the attention of league clubs and after a period at Mansfield Town, his move to Stevenage has seen him reach another level.

“It was a very competitive game at the Lamex earlier in the season. We conceded two soft goals but we had a lot of the play for the rest of the game. Steve Evans deserves a lot of credit, I think a lot of people thought their recruitment was good and they started the season well, but to be in the play-offs at this stage of the season, given their budgets and expectations is a tremendous achievement. We will need to be at our best to win the game,” Darren Ferguson said.

Where do you start? Stevenage boss Steve Evans, assistant manager Paul Raynor and Goalkeeping Coach Ian Pledger have all worked at Posh, as has physiotherapist Matt Rogers. On the pitch, defenders Carl Piergianni, Nathan Thompson and Dan Butler have all featured for Posh, the latter two making a massive contribution to the promotion-winning campaign in 2021.
