Team News: Peterborough United
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson to be concerned about due to a largely intact set of players. Ricky-Jade Jones (Knee Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: Bournemouth
Thanks to a mainly available group, there is just the one fitness problem for the Bournemouth gaffer Scott Parker to contend with. Lewis Cook (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) misses out for this game.
Here, we’re thinking that Peterborough United may not find it easy to see themselves scoring against this Bournemouth outfit who will likely score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore anticipating a good battle with a 0-1 winning margin for Bournemouth when the full-time whistle blows.
Let’s see how this one goes.
