Fleetwood Town will be wanting a better result here following a 0-2 League One losing effort in their last game against Swindon Town.
Scott Twine (5', 60') was the scorer for Swindon Town.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that not much more can be done by the Fleetwood Town rearguard. The Fishermen have given the opposition little, seeing the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their past 6 matches standing at 3.
Peterborough United will come into the encounter after a 7-0 League One win versus Accrington Stanley in their last match.

In their last six clashes, Peterborough United have amassed a total of 14 goals. The Posh have also managed to score on each one of those occasions. In that time, their defenders have seen 11 goals go against them. We shall soon find out if that trend will end up being continued on here.
Analysis of their past results shows that Peterborough United:
- have not registered a win against Fleetwood Town when they've played them away from home in the last 2 matches in the league.
- have not won away from home in their last 4 matches in the league.

Thanks to a completely injury-free squad ready to go, Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson does not have any fitness concerns at all before this clash.
We’re thinking that Fleetwood Town may not find it easy to be putting a goal past this Peterborough United lineup who we think will likely score one, at least.
We’re therefore anticipating a good battle with a 0-1 winning margin for Peterborough United when the referee blows for full-time.
Should be an interesting one.
