Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Peterborough United will be looking to extend their winning run to four games in all competitions when they welcome Dover Athletic at their Weston Homes Stadium. The Posh have been producing excellent performances in front of home fans of late, and it is no wonder they are considered as hot favourites to win Sunday’s FA Cup clash against the National League side.
A man to watch in the home team will be Sudan international Mohamed Eisa, who has been scoring goals for fun in all competitions this season. The Whites are undefeated in the last four league fixtures, but seeing that Peterborough United are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from the trip to Posh. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time in the FA Cup.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Maddison):
After spending his youth career at Newcastle United, Marcus Maddison signed a professional contract with the Magpies in the 2012/2013 season. However, he was immediately loaned to Blyth Spartans where he scored one goal in two appearances.
In 2013 the pacey winger was released by Newcastle United, signing a deal with Scottish club St. Jonstone. Due to a hunger for a first-team football Marcus Maddison returns to England in the summer of 2013, signing a contract with Conference Premier club Gateshead. The 180-cm tall footballer scored 13 goals in 34 appearances for the club before joining Peterborough United in 2014.
Maddison has established himself as a first-team regular at Peterborough and he is widely expected to play an important role in the London Road Stadium outfit in the 2019/2020 League One season. The English footballer, who is capable of playing as both winger and attacking midfielder, was born in Durham on September 26, 1993.
Highlighted Team (Peterborough):
Founded in 1934, Peterborough United are a professional club that competes in the League One. The Posh play their home games at London Road Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 15,314. Peterborough’s home colour is blue, whilst the colour of their away kit is blue. The Posh have the third kit as well where yellow and black are the dominant colours.
Peterborough United’s biggest success came in the 1964/1965 when the club booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Chelsea, though, proved to be a big catch for the Posh, beating them 5-1 in London. It has to be noted that Peterborough United made it to the Football League Cup semis in the 1965/1966 season, with the team losing to WBA in the two-legged tie.
The likes of Cambridge United and Northampton Town are considered the club’s main rivals. The Posh have built a rivalry with Huddersfield Town, with fans seeing MK Dons as rivals as well.
