Match Preview | Peterborough United

5 April 2023

Shrewsbury Town host Peterborough United this Friday in the Sky Bet League One. Kick-off is at 3pm.

With Town aiming for their sixth home win in a row, both sides will be looking for a better result than the one they picked up at the weekend. 

Salop suffered defeat on Saturday while Posh had to settle for a draw at home to out-of-form Oxford United.

There have been 60 meetings between Salop and Posh, with each club winning 21 of those and the remaining 18 ending in draws. The last meeting between the sides ended in a victory for Peterborough, as they won 2-1 at the London Road Stadium in March. Before that, Shrewsbury were 3-1 winners in the second round FA Cup tie at Montgomery Waters Meadow in November last year.
