Posh U21s face The Tractor Boys at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Peterborough United U21s welcome Ipswich Town U21s to the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday afternoon (2pm) in the Professional Development League.

The under 21s picked up their first victory in four games last week after a 2-1 victory over Barnsley U21s at the Weston Homes Stadium following goals from Kai Corbett and Kabongo Tshimanga, lifting them to eighth in the table and six points behind second-place Hull City having played two fewer games.

The Blues, who compete in the southern region of the Professional Development League, are currently sat eighth in the table and picked up an impressive 2-0 victory over Watford in their last game.

U18s defender Benjamin Arthur made his first start for the under 21s against The Tykes and Professional Development Phase coach, Ryan Semple, confirmed the possibility of more under 18s players involved on Tuesday.

Speaking ahead of the game, Semple said: “We are looking for a good performance, especially how well we can impose our game on them. Having watched the game back against Barnsley, we were very good in a lot of things for the hour, but the game did become a little scrappy once the changes were made.

“However, we will look to build on that result and this is a game where we feel we can get a positive performance from it. Ipswich will be difficult to beat, they have some good attacking players and picked up a good victory last week against Watford, so we know we will be in for a tough test.

“It doesn’t matter who is playing, whether that is first-team or under 18s, as an under 21s group we want to end the season on a high. We have five more important games for us and it’s important that everyone is in the right direction.”

Tickets can be brought on the day at the Weston Homes Stadium Box Office. Admission is free for season ticket holders with adult tickets available for £3 and concessions (seniors and under 18s) at £1. The Main North Stand will be open for the fixture.

The game will be streamed live on Posh+, without any commentary, and will be free for Posh+ subscribers or £3 for a match pass.
