31 December 2018

Stuart McCall’s side arrested a run of six successive league defeats to defeat Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 at Glanford Park on Saturday, with Kyle Wootton netting the winning goal. We enter the game sitting 22nd in the table.

Meanwhile, the Posh sit fifth and were 4-0 winners at Accrington Stanley, with ex-Scunthorpe loanee Ivan Toney hitting a hat-trick.

TEAM NEWS…

Andy Dales was a substitute against Wycombe but came off soon after entering the pitch due to a neck injury, so will be assessed ahead of the Peterborough clash.

Josh Morris faces two months out with a fractured fibula and strained ankle ligaments. Elsewhere, Matt Gilks (knee) and Rory Watson (arm) continue to miss out, Ryan Colclough (knee) is out for the remainder of the season, while Matthew Lund (knee) is also out for an unspecified length of time. Meanwhile, Jordan Clarke (knee) is out for three months.

PAST MEETINGS…

The Iron were beaten 2-0 by the Posh at Glanford Park earlier this season, with Matt Godden scoring a brace.

Peterborough hosted Scunthorpe last back in February, with a 2-2 draw played out.

ONE TO WATCH…

In-form ex-Iron loanee Ivan Toney made it 16 goals for the season with his treble against Accrington Stanley last weekend.

The forward started his career with Northampton Town, before joining Newcastle United for an undisclosed fee.

Loan stays with Barnsley, Shrewsbury, the Iron (twice) and Wigan followed before his permanent move to the Posh last summer.

During his two stints in Scunthorpe colours, Toney notched 15 goals.

Match Reports

Report: Peterborough United 0-2 Iron

1 January 2019

Two goals from striker Lee Novak gave the Iron a 2-0 victory against Peterborough United on New Year’s Day.

Novak’s first came inside six minutes after he seized on a poor back pass to convert past the goalkeeper.

Great pressure from George Thomas then led to the striker’s second, slotting the ball into the bottom right corner at the ABAX Stadium.

Manager Stuart McCall made one change from the side that beat Wycombe Wanderers last Saturday. Defender Charlie Goode came in to replace Yasin Ben El-Mhanni.

The Iron got off to a bright start and could have been ahead within the opening three minutes. A ball set up nicely for George Thomas on the edge of the box and his dipping volley crashed against the underside of the bar and back into play.

Thomas caused more problems when he beat Posh goalkeeper Connor O’Malley to the ball and sent an effort goalwards. With the ball rolling towards the empty net, a defender got back to clear it away.

McCall’s side continued to press forward and got their rewards in the sixth minute when Novak put the Iron 1-0 up. The forward pounced on a poor back pass from Joe Ward and neatly slotted the ball into the right corner of the net.

Posh then looked to grab an equaliser not long later through former Iron loanee Ivan Toney. He rose to meet a left-winged cross, but his header flew wide of the target.

That chance was later followed up by an effort from Marcus Maddison, whose driven shot from 30 yards went over Jak Alnwick’s crossbar. 

Alex Woodyard then curled a cross into the area from the right side, which was met by Ward at the far post, but his side-footed attempt went wide. 

Toney had another opportunity for the hosts after a cross came in from Maddison. He found space in the box, but struck his volley wide of the left post. 

At the start of the second-half, Thomas hit the woodwork for the second time in the match. The attacking midfielder took a free-kick by the left corner of the box and his effort curled all the way through and skimmed off the right post. The ball then bounced out for a goal-kick.

The Leicester City loanee then laid the ball off to Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, who had made a run inside. However, the full-back’s effort went wide of the right post. 

Just seconds later Novak got his and the Iron’s second goal of the match in the 58th minute. Thomas was again involved in the attack when he worked extremely hard to get a cross in from the left. It wasn’t cleared by the Posh defence, as the attacking midfielder closed down the ball, before Novak coolly finished the ball into the bottom right corner.

Peterborough looked for a goal back in stoppage time but Matt Godden’s header went wide. 

That was the last main action in the match, with the Iron recording back-to-back wins as they will get ready to host Coventry City on Saturday.
