PREVIEW: PETERBOROUGH UNITED (H)

2 April 2015

The Iron welcome Peterborough to Glanford Park on Good Friday and will be hoping to kick the Easter period off with a crucial win.

Mark Robins’ side picked up a useful point at Notts County in their last outing and the Iron boss was pleased with the fight shown by his side.

Peterborough travel to Scunthorpe on the back of a disappointing defeat at home to Coventry, which saw them drop out of the play-offs.

The Posh have picked up of late, following the appointment of caretaker boss Dave Robertson and former Iron favourite Grant McCann, although they have lost two of their last three.

Robertson does have former Iron loanee Luke Williams at his disposal for Good Friday’s clash. The forward played for the Iron earlier this season and managed to score against the Posh.

Mark Robins will be hoping his side can keep Williams quiet, and he has no new injury concerns ahead of the Peterborough game.

Sam Slocombe returned to full training during the week, with the Iron boss confirming he would be in contention for a first team return on Good Friday.

Midfielders Dave Syers and Neal Bishop have both stepped up their comebacks from injury and Robins hoped they would both be back in the coming matches.

The Iron won the reverse fixture at Peterborough 2-1, with Luke Williams and a Ricardo Santos goal helping United to victory, although Conor Washington had equalised for the Posh.

Out of a total of 53 matches played between the two sides, the Iron have a better record than Peterborough, winning 22 compared to the Posh’s 16, with 15 draws between the two sides.
