Bristol City visit London Road on Tuesday night in what is already being labelled a 'crucial game` in Posh`s season.
Peterborough United -Vs- Bristol City
Venue: London Road
Date: 18th September, 2012
The Posh suffered a 5-2 defeat at Burnley on Saturday, mainly down to more abysmal defending, and will be looking to set the record straight against Derek McInnes` team.
Bristol City also conceded 5 at the weekend; they lost 5-3 to Blackburn Rovers, in a game that saw Jordan Rhodes get his first 2 goals for Rovers.
Posh are still without injured full back Tommy Rowe, but he is the only real injury worry for Darren Ferguson. Fergie is expected to make changes in defence, after his current choices have conceded 8 goals in just 5 league games. Michael Bostwick could keep his place at the heart of the defence, but could partner Gabriel Zakuani this time out, if the captain is restored to the back line, in place of Shaun Brisley, who has had a diabolical start to the season. Kgosi Ntlhe could come back in to contention after he was rested against Burnley; this will see either Mark Little or Craig Alcock drop out of the line up, should Fergie start the young South Africa International.
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing is expected to start again after being the outstanding performer for Posh on Saturday, despite the big defeat. Mendez-Laing won a penalty, and scored in the game at Burnley, and is likely to be one of the first names on the team sheet. Daniel Kearns and Danny Swanson may also feature at some point in the game, after they were both left out of the Burnley squad, due to injury.
Tyrone Barnett will partner Lee Tomlin up front once again, after putting in good displays against Birmingham and Burnley. This will be Barnett`s first game this season at London Road, as the start to his season was delayed through injury.
Vital Posh predicts the starting line-up could be:
Little, Zakuani, Knight-Percival, Nthle
Mendez-Laing, McCann, Bostwick, Boyd
