Following on from a loss in their previous game against Fleetwood Town in League One action, Peterborough United and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
Josh Vela (23') scored for Fleetwood Town.
Looking at their form, and Peterborough United have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 8 goals in total. In defence, Peterborough United have some weaknesses to address. That trend won’t necessarily be continued into this game, of course.

Team News: Bolton Wanderers
The Bolton Wanderers manager Ian Evatt will be happy not to have any fitness worries at all ahead of this match thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
It’s our opinion that The Trotters should use the 3-4-1-2 formation for this game and select James Trafford, Gethin Jones, Ricardo Santos, George Johnston, Conor Bradley, Jack Iredale, Kyle Dempsey, M. Jordan Williams, George Thomason, Elias Kachunga and Dion Charles.
Team News: Peterborough United
Thanks to a largely full-strength group, there is just the lone fitness problem for the Peterborough United manager Grant McCann to contend with. Kell Watts (Knee Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’re of the thinking that The Posh will likely elect for a 4-5-1 system with a starting lineup of Lucas Bergstroem, Nathan Thompson, Josh Knight, Ronnie Edwards, Harrison Burrows, Ricky Jade-Jones, Jeando Pourrat Fuchs, Jack Taylor, Ben Thompson, Kwame Poku and Jonson Clarke-Harris.
Here is a game where Peterborough United will have their work cut out to breach the defence of this Bolton Wanderers outfit who we reckon should score & stay on top.
We therefore fancy a narrow 1-0 victory for Bolton Wanderers at the end of this one.
Should be an interesting one.
