Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Portman Road when Ipswich Town and Peterborough United face each other in the League One derby. The Tractor Boys dropped two points in a 1-1 draw with Fleetwood, but they are still seen as favourites to beat the Posh on home soil. With no fresh injury worries to report, Kieran McKenna is unlikely to make changes to the team that the Cods at the weekend.
Meanwhile, Peterborough aim to recover from a 2-1 defeat to Barnsley, but given their four-match losing run in all competitions, home win should definitely be considered. Joe Ward has overcome his injury, while both Joe Tomlinson and Ollie Norburn are major doubts. Peterborough defeated Ipswich in each of their last three meetings in the League One, but we are tempted to put our money on the Tractor Boys, who are seen as the main candidates for automatic promotion.
Highlighted Player (Vaclav Hladky):
Born in Brno on November 14, 1990, Vaclav Hladky is a Czech footballer who plays for Scottish Premier League club St Mirren as a goalkeeper. Hladky spent his youth career at the likes of FC Sparta Brno, FK Sardice, and FC Zbrojovka Brno, and he continued playing for the Zbrojovka Brno reserve team at the senior level.
The 192-cm-tall shot-stopper played for the likes of MSK Breclav (loan) Sparta Brno, FK Sardice, FC Zbrojovka Brno (senior team), and Slovan Liberec before signing a contract with St Mirren. The Czech goalkeeper made his Scottish Premiership debut on January 23, 2019, in a 4-0 loss at Celtic.
Hladky played for the Czech Republic youth teams as well, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the Czech Republic senior team. Vaclav Hladky wears the No. 1 shirt at St Mirren, and his preferred foot is right.
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.
