Marcus Braddock previews tonight's game against Posh

Tonight we face play-off chasing Peterborough United who still have everything to play for despite some patchy form. Posh are currently in ninth place and are the lowest placed team with a mathematical chance of making the top six in time for all the excitement. They may be quite a few points from their goal, they still have to play relegated Bury and play-off chasing rivals Portsmouth.  However other results go, Posh will have to beat us to stand any chance and they will have to improve on recent form. Over the last seven games, Posh have only managed to win once, draw twice and lost four with three of those defeats coming in the last three games.

Squad News
Posh: Defender Ryan Tafazolli will be missing with a Hamstring injury.
Town: Paul Hurst could change things around again as we have a few knocks bumps and bruises.

Posh manager Steve Evans has been quite complimentary about us this week, calling us the team of the season. Whether he is trying to praise us into a false sense of security or not remains to be seen but having crossed swords with him previously, we know his team will be motivated and difficult to beat. However, if Scunthorpe can get their desired outcome at MK Dons tonight and Posh do anything worse than an away win then their hopes of promotion will be over.
