Peterborough United

Posh are still waiting for their first away win of 2012 having picked up just two points out of 18 points on their travels during this year.

Having endured a poor start to the year, Posh`s fortunes and performances had made a dramatic about turn as they have defeated promotion hopefuls Blackpool and Reading recently while losing narrowly in their last away match to Ipswich.

Tuesdays excellent 3-1 win over Reading lifted them one place to 17th; moving above Barnsley! Posh are now 13 points from the relegation positions.
