Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Cheltenham Town will look to make a flying start to their 2022/2023 League One campaign when they welcome Peterborough nited to their Whaddon Park on Saturday. Cheltenham finished the last season in 15th place and, no doubt, they are eyeing a top-table finish this time out. The good news for the hosts is that the club management managed to keep hold of Alfie May, the team’s top scorer, in the summer transfer window.
You should bear in mind that the Robins defeated Northampton 2-0 in their last warm-up game. The Posh, on the other hand, rolled over Hull City 3-0 in their last test match, and given Peterborough’s attacking potential, we believe that gamblers from all around the globe can find value in betting on both teams to score. A man to watch in the away team will be Jamaica international Jonson Clarke-Harris, who scored 12 goals in the Championship last term.
Highlighted Player (Chris Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
