Vital Posh looks at previous matches between Peterborough United and Sheffield United ahead of the Sky Bet League One match at London Road.
Posh and the Blades have only ever met each other on 7 occasions! They`ve met four times in the League, twice in the League Cup and once in the FA Cup.
The Blades have had the better results down the years and have won five of the seven matches with the other two being a League Cup draw and a win for Posh in the League.
The last League meeting between these sides came four seasons ago in 2009/10 season when Posh won their only match against Sheffield United. The Championship match ended 1-0 to Posh thanks to a Craig Mackail-Smith goal five minutes from half-time.
The previous results between these two sides were:
|2009/10||09 Mar 10||Peterborough||1||-||0||Sheff Utd||Championship|
|2009/10||21 Nov 09||Sheff Utd||1||-||0||Peterborough||Championship|
|1984/85||05 Sep 84||Peterborough||2||-||2||Sheff Utd||League Cup|
|1984/85||28 Aug 84||Sheff Utd||1||-||0||Peterborough||League Cup|
|1981/82||08 May 82||Sheff Utd||4||-||0||Peterborough||Division 4|
|1981/82||21 Apr 82||Peterborough||0||-||4||Sheff Utd||Division 4|
Last Time Out at London Road
Posh were languishing 10 points from safety at the bottom of the Championship when the Blades, sitting in 9th place just three points from the play-offs turned up at London Road.
Jim Gannon was in temporary charge of Posh after Darren Ferguson and Mark Cooper had left the managerial hotseat already during the season.
The only goal of the contest was scored by a player who Gannon had tried to get rid of during his time at London Road - Craig Mackail-Smith!
The striker stooped to head home from close range five minutes before the break to settle a dour game at London Road. Before that Blades keeper Mark Bunn had saved well from Charlie Lee's header.
The visitors were lacklustre in attack, with Stephen Quinn's blocked shot their best effort, and Posh saw out only their sixth win this season. The defeat also dented the Blades chances of making the play-offs.
