Match Preview: Peterborough United v Bradford City

This weekend Peterborough will host Bradford City for the first time this season and will look to get a better result then last season when Jordy Hiwula’s strike was all that seperated the two sides.

The Posh are on great form sitting top of League 1 three points ahead of Bradford who sit in sixth, Bradford has won four of their last six games, losing one and drawing the other.

Bradford made a great charge for promotion last season but lost out to Millwall in the play-off final so will want to get promoted to the Championship at the end of this season. Stuart McCall helped the team to it last season and with the additions of Charlie Wykes and Dominic Poleon over the summer they will help Bradford on the attacking side, they’ve already got five goals between them as well.

This is a huge game for the Posh as Bradford pushed for promotion last season and will want to again this year , if Peterborough want to be competitive this season they need to get results against these sorts of teams, they already have against Rotherham this season and this is they’re next big test for Grant McCann’s side.

Paul Taylor will also be in focus in this game as this is his first game back at London Road since leaving for Bradford in the summer, if Taylor is picked in the Bradford squad it will be interesting to see how he does against his old side and how the fans will treat him.

If I had to predict a score here I’d say either 1-0 Bradford or 2-1 Peterborough.

  • Whilst my last 2 visits to London Road have resulted in 2 victories by 1-0 & 4-0 I am still haunted by our loss in 1980!
    It was the final game of the season and we only needed to draw to gain promotion. Posh who had nothing to play for but pride managed to win the game 1-0 and spoil the party!!
    Always a tough game, but both sides play decent football so should be another good encounter.
    Whatever the result there’s a long way to go till May.
    Enjoy the game.
