Posh U21s to face the Rovers on Wednesday afternoon.

Peterborough United U21s are set to conclude their Premier League Cup campaign on Wednesday afternoon (1pm) as they face Blackburn Rovers U21s at Lancashire FA County Ground in the final group game.

The under 21s were knocked out of the competition last month after a 2-0 defeat to group leaders Brentford B, while the Rovers have secured their spot in the next round after cementing their spot in second-place. 

Following last week’s postponement against Hull City in the Professional Development League, tomorrow’s trip to Lancashire will be the under 21s first fixture since the New Year and Professional Development Coach, Ryan Semple, wants to use the game as an opportunity to build momentum ahead of their return to the league campaign. 

Semple said: “After last week’s game been called off, the players have gone a few weeks without a game now, so tomorrow is a good opportunity for players to get some minutes against some tough opposition. We have prepared well for the game and, even though our fate has been sealed in the group, we want to finish the competition strongly.

“We are hoping, weather permitting, to have a settled run of games, which is important to try and build some momentum ahead of a busy second half of the season. So, hopefully, tomorrow is the start of a positive run of performances.”

Supporters can attend the game at the Lancashire County Ground, with tickets priced at £5 for adults and £2 for concessions.

The game gets underway at 1pm and updates will be available club’s official Twitter account.

Due to Burnley U21s involvement in the Lancashire Senior Cup, our fixture against The Clarets in the Professional Development League has been re-arranged for Monday 27th March.
