The first home game of the new season sees Kenny Jackett`s Millwall visit London Road, in what is already being seen as a relegation 6 pointer.
Peterborough United -Vs- Millwall
Venue: London Road
Date: 21st August, 2012
The Posh suffered a 3-0 defeat in this fixture last season. They will certainly be looking to improve on this result this time around.
Posh and Millwall come into this game on the back of opening day 2-0 defeats against Leicester and Blackpool respectively, and they will both want to battle back with a win in this fixture. Both sides are expected to be involved in a relegation dogfight, and every point will count.
Posh are still without injured full back Tommy Rowe, who still faces a lengthy stint on the sidelines. Mark Little could start at right back, with Craig Alcock moving to left back, if Kgosi Nthle is dropped to the bench, after the whole defence had a shaky opening day.
Striker, Emile Sinclair, could be handed a start after Paul Taylor and Lee Tomlin put in below par performances at Leicester. If one of the two are dropped, it is likely to be Lee Tomlin, as Paul Taylor seems to be on of Darren Ferguson`s favourites, even when he performs badly. The situation of Tyrone Barnett is still unknown, but if he is fit, he is sure to feature on Tuesday.
Daniel Kearns could come back into contention if he recovers from injury, but Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is still out injured. Posh have a number of options in midfield: Danny Swanson and Grant McCann could be pushing for starts, as well as Robert Pervan, if he completes his move to London Road.
Vital Posh predicts the starting line-up could be:
Alcock, Zakuani, Brisley, Nthle
