Match preview: Peterborough United Shrewsbury Town

30 October 2020

Match preview for Town's fixture with Peterborough United.

Town are on the road again this weekend in the search for three points in Sky Bet League One. This time, their travels take them all the way to Cambridgeshire to lock horns with Peterborough United. Posh started their league campaign with a slight wobble, losing at Accrington 2-0, winning 2-1 at home to Fleetwood and losing 1-0 art Sunderland's Stadium of Light.

Since then, however, they've barely put a foot wrong with five consecutive wins followed by a 2-2 draw at home to Burton Albion on Tuesday night.

Goals

Posh have scored in every home game this season, two in the first half and seven in the second half. Of those seven second-half goals, three were scored in the last fifteen minutes so Posh look to be strong finishers.

By contrast, they've only conceded four times at home this season, two in the first half and two in the second. Possibly the most impressive thing about this defensive record is that they've not conceded a goal in the last half an hour of any home game this season in League One.

Discipline

Peterborough haven't received a red card so far this season and have only received 10 yellow cards, second-lowest in League One.

Referee

James Oldham from Derbyshire. Games this season: 6. Yellow cards: 13. Red cards: 13.

Assistants

Richard Woodward and Danny Gratton
