Match Preview: Peterborough United v MK Dons
Big match on Tuesday for Posh fans, after the defeat at home to Bradford at the weekend Peterborough will be looking to bounce back against their rivals, MK Dons on Tuesday night.
Good news for Posh fans as well that they have won three of their last four meetings the only exception was a 2-0 loss at MK last season and the last meeting they had at London Road was a 4-0 smashing by The Posh.
MK come into this game only winning two of their last five games, the 1-0 win against Plymouth at the weekend and 2-0 against Brighton Under 21s in the Checkatrade Trophy, they sit 15th in League 1 with only seven points from six games only scoring four goals in those six games as well.
This match is big for both sides as MK won’t want to make it four losses in a row against Peterborough and they will want to get momentum going into the rest of the season, whereas Peterborough will want to bounce back quickly from the loss at the weekend especially when a lot of their players said at the weekend that they wanted to challenge for the Play-offs this season.
Robbie Neilson had a huge overhaul of his team over the summer as well bringing in 19 new players with the likes of Osman Sow, Aidan Nesbitt and Ethan Ebanks-Landell coming in to help out their squad for the new campaign.
If anything I’m sure this match will have a lot of attacking football from both sides, as Posh showed at the weekend even in defeat they create a lot of chances so if anything is to go by it’s one of the highest scoring teams in the league against one of the lowest but as we’ve seen it happen many times before anything can happen in a derby.
Possible scores, 3-0 Posh or 4-1 Posh.
