Peterborough United will be looking to win their third match in a row when they travel north to visit fellow bottom four team Sheffield Wednesday.
Sheffield Wednesday -Vs- Peterborough United
Date: 3rd November, 2012
Seven League defeats in a row from the start of the season is starting to look a long time ago with Posh having won four out of their last six matches.
Posh will be looking to build on their recent run with a third away win of the season. Having finally moved out of the bottom three, Posh could move further up the table with another win, but a defeat will see them drop back into the bottom three with their host jumping above them.
The Owls, promoted from League One last season, started the season off well with two wins and a draw before going on a nine game run without a win. That run of results ended last Saturday when they soundly beat bottom team Ipswich Town 3-0.
The Owls and Posh have met on 16 previous occasions in the League. Wednesday have come out on top seven times while Posh have won five matches.
The Owls were hoping to build on their promotion last season but have faltered over the past couple of months.
Midfielder Rhys McCabe has been out of action with a thigh injury but could make a return to first team action against Posh. Chris Lines looks set to miss out on the substitutes bench as he continues his recovery from a groin injury.
After beating Ipswich last week, Owls boss Dave Jones is likely to stick with the same team that brought him his first win in ten matches. 'We had a great result last week but we need to build on that and keep growing.' Jones said.
'We are all here to work hard first and foremost and my players don't need to be told how important each game is.'
Posh boss Darren Ferguson is still without Tommy Rowe, Peter Grant and Dave Hibbert for the trip to Hillsborough.
George Boyd and Michael Bostwick have both recovered from knocks they picked up in last weeks 3-0 win against Derby County which means Fergis is likely to stick to the same formation and starting line-up again.
That means another start for teenage WBA loanee Saido Berahino [pictured below] with Lee Tomlin likely to remain as his strike partner keeping out million pound man Tyrone Barnett and fellow striker Emile Sinclair.
Vital Posh predicts the starting line-up will be:
Alcock, Brisley, Knight-Percival
Little, Bostwick, McCann, Ntlhe
