Peterborough United are hoping to return to winning ways as they entertain promotion chasing Hull City.
Peterborough United -Vs- Hull City
Venue: London Road
Date: 19th January, 2013
Posh welcome visitors Hull City to London Road for the 34th League match between the two teams.
Posh hold the advantage having won 16 League matches compared to Hulls 9 matches. Hull did the double over Posh last season winning both matches by a single goal but Posh upset the form book earlier this season as they triumphed 3-1 at the KC Stadium thanks to a hat-trick by Emile Sinclair.
Hull are having a good season and are challenging for the automatic promotion places although they did drop down to third place following Leicester City`s win over Middlesbrough last night. Hull will move back into second spot if they beat Posh today though.
Posh and The Tigers both suffered defeats last weekend. Hull went down to a shock 3-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday which saw the Owls leapfrog Posh who suffered a 2-1 defeat away at Nottingham Forest.
Posh boss Darren Ferguson looks set to name an unchanged starting line-up which means a second start for Manchester United loanees Scott Wootton and Davide Petrucci.
Danny Swanson missed last weeks match with a shoulder injury but should take his place back on the substitutes bench this week.
Despite the poor form shown by Kane Ferdinand, he is expected to retain his place in the heart of the midfield alongside fellow youngster Joe Newell. Last weeks match against Forest passed both of them by and it is felt by many Posh fans that a change is needed in this central pairing.
Shaun Brisley got the nod over Nat Knight-Percival for the left side of the three man defence but it gave the defence a lop-sided feel. Left-footed Knight-Percival is pushing for a start to give a more even feel to the defence.
Influential defender Gaby Zakuani is again missing as he is away at the African Cup of Nations which starts this weekend. Lee Tomlin will also be missing as he sits out his final match of his three match suspension.
Vital Posh would like the starting line-up to be:
Bostwick, Wootton, Knight-Percival
Little, McCann, Newell, Rowe
