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.
MK have won three of the last five meetings between the two sides, two of those have come at London Road, the only exceptions are a 2-0 loss at StadiumMK and a 3-2 thriller in 2014, last time the Dons came to London Road they smashed the Posh 4-0 with goals from Harvey Barnes, Kieran Agard and a brace from Chuks Aneke.
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 is a huge match for both sides like any derby the intensity will be turned up for this fixture, MK will want to use this to help bring them up the table and start closing the gap to their rivals as Posh sit 3rd at the moment and MK are 15th, Posh will want to bounce back after the lose at the weekend and will want to avoid losing three in a row against the Dons.
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.
