Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Plymouth will look to get their revenge on Peterborough for the EFL Cup defeat when the two teams face each other at Home Park for the second time in just four days. The Pilgrims defeated Barnsley in their first home game of the season, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Saturday’s showdown. Ryan Hardie is widely expected to return to the starting XI after the centre-forward was rested in the EFL Cup loss.
The Posh, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record in the league intact. Since Peterborugh have been impressive at the back of late, a low-scoring affair is on the cards, but we predict that one goal will separate the two teams in the Home Park showdown. As for the visiting side, both Butler and Norburn are out of contention through injuries.
