Match Preview: Peterborough United v Bristol Rovers

25 January 2021

The Gas head on their 3rd away trip on the bounce, taking on Peterborough United on Tuesday evening...

Rovers face a tricky Tuesday night trip, with the Posh in hot form and currently sitting 3rd in the League One table. Their unbeaten streak in the league stretches back to the start of December too, but with a 1-0 win over Ipswich Town their most recent result.

Of course, there will be a familiar face in the Posh's ranks, with Jonson Clarke-Harris in fine fettle following his summer transfer from the Gas.

Manager's Preview...

Paul Tisdale discussed his side's trip to Peterborough as part of his post-match assessment following defeat at Oxford United, ready to move on to the next challenge, saying "I certainly know what I need to do going into Tuesday, and the players need to apply that and commit for the next game at Peterborough."

"It goes without saying, we need a win."

Opposition View...

Darren Ferguson sat down with the media ahead of his side's home fixture against the Gas, saying to "Paul is a very accomplished manager, he's done well at the clubs he's been at, and he's very good tactically.

"I always try and focus on us, we scrapped out a win on Saturday - it's just about picking up the points."

Form Guide...

The Posh come into this one following a 1-0 victory over fellow promotion-chasers Ipswich Town down at Portman Road, and prior to that, had shown some classy form. A resounding 3-0 win over MK Dons, followed up by 3 points against Charlton Athletic shows their quality. Peterborough's last defeat came at the hands of Portsmouth back at the start of December.
