Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Out-of-sorts Fleetwood will look to put an end to their three-game losing run in the League One when they take on Peterborough on Saturday afternoon. The Cod Army have been slipping down the standings week by week and given their shaky defence, home win should not be considered. Both Stockley and Dolan are pushing for a start as Lee Johnson should opt to make changes to the team that suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Northampton at the weekend.
The Posh, on the other hand, are eyeing their fourth consecutive league win and we predict that they will take advantage of Fleetwood’s poor form in December. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Lancashire. In their last meeting in the League One Fleetwood defeated Peterborough 1-0, meaning that the visitors are hungry for revenge.
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.
