PREVIEW: Shrewsbury V Peterborough

14 December 2018

Marcus Braddock gives us his preview ahead of tomorrow's game against Peterborough

This weekend we face fourth-placed Peterborough United in our penultimate game of 2018. Posh are having a pretty good season after being relegated with just four defeats in Sky Bet League One. Three of those four defeats came at home leaving just the one from away games which means they have the second best away record on this division. When it comes to away goals Posh are top of the tree with 24 scored on the road although their eleven goals conceded means that their goal difference is lower than each of the top three's and that of Barnsley.

Summary

On paper this is probably the most difficult home game of the season with the numbers showing Posh to be in with a good chance of winning, Having said that, we've not lost at home since Sunderland won 2-0 at Montgomery Waters Meadow  on October 2nd so we've got a good chance of getting something too.
