Vital Posh looks at previous matches between Port Vale and Peterborough United ahead of Saturday`s Sky Bet League One match.
After Tuesday`s JP Trophy match, Posh are back in League action looking to make it five League wins in a row but they face a tricky trip to Port Vale.
The Valiants were promoted from League Two last season and made a steady start to life in the next tier. During September they moved up a gear and won four out of the five matches they played. The only match they lost was 3-2 at League leaders Leyton Orient!
There have been 43 competitive matches between the Vale and the Posh with all bar one coming in the League.
It couldn`t be much closer in terms of wins with Vale having beaten Posh on 15 occasions with Posh winning 14 times. There have been 13 draws in the League as well. Out of the 43 matches, only nine have resulted in a win for the away team!
The last time these two teams met in League action was in the 2004/05 season. Both matches finished with a win to the home team.
The previous ten League results between these two sides were:
|2004/05||07 May 05||Port Vale||1||-||0||Peterborough||League One|
|2004/05||27 Nov 04||Peterborough||4||-||0||Peterborough||League One|

|2000/01||08 Oct 00||Peterborough||2||-||0||Port Vale||League Div 2|
Last Time Out at Port Vale
The day Posh last played Port Vale was a day many Posh fans will remember fondly. Although Posh were sadly relegated to the bottom tier of the Football League as they finished in 23rd place, Barry Fry was celebrating his 750th match as a football manager. But that`s not the reason. It`s because it was Barry Fry`s last match as manager!
Posh had begun well with Andre Boucard firing a shot just wide before Mark Goodlad was forced into decent saves from Callum Willock and Richard Logan.
The hosts got the winner halfway through the second half, Tony Dinning heading in Chris Birchall's centre.
Andy Clarke could have equalised but he fired wide after bursting clear.
Vale: Goodlad, Pilkington, James, Walsh, Hanson, Birchall, Sonner, Dinning, Innes (Smith 72 mins), Matthews (Lowndes 79 mins), Paynter.
Unused subs: Brain, Rowland, Reid.
Posh: Tyler, Kanu, Plummer, Burton, St.Ledger, Fry (Newton 67 mins), Boucaud, Deen (Coulson 73 mins), Clarke, Willock, Logan (Purser 64 mins).
Unused subs: Semple, Onibuje.
