Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Portman Road when Ipswich Town and Peterborough face each other in the League One round 25. The Tractor Boys aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Burton, and a victory over Peterborough could see them climb to the playoffs berth. Ipswich are eyeing their eighth home win of the season, but Saturday’s football game will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
The likes of Teddy Bishop, Freddie Sears, and Gwion Edwards have all recovered from their respective injuries, while James Wilson is rated doubtful for the game. The Posh are eyeing their third consecutive win in the League One, and seeing that Darren Ferguson has a full squad to choose from, we are positive that the visitors will grab something from the match. Since a close encounter is on the cards at Portman Road, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
Highlighted Player (David Cornell):
Born in Waunarlwydd, Wales on March 28, 1991, David Cornell is a goalkeeper who plays for Northampton Town in the League Two. The 180-cm tall shot-stopper is a product of the Swansea City football school, but he did not make any appearances for the Swans at senior level.
Cornell played for the likes of Port Talbot Town, Hereford United, St. Mirren, and Portsmouth on loan before signing a permanent contract with Oldham Athletic in the 2015/2016 season. In the summer of 2016, he joined Northampton Town on a two-year deal.
Speaking of his international career, David Cornell has three caps with the Wales U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. The Northampton Town goalkeeper wears the number 1 jersey, and his preferred foot is right. He has a contract with the Cobblers until June 30, 2020.
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.
