PREVIEW: PETERBOROUGH UNITED V BURTON ALBION

4 May 2019

IT'S the final game of the 2018/19 season - and we take on Darren Ferguson's Peterborough United at the ABAX Stadium. Take a look at our matchday preview right here.

HEAD 2 HEAD

WHEN the two sides met earlier this season, it was The Posh, then under the management of Steve Evans, who were victorious, goals from Joe Ward and Siriki Dembele securing a 2-1 win at the Pirelli Stadium despite Jamie Allen pulling one back for us on the hour.

Our last meeting at the ABAX came during our promotion season of 2015/16 on a cold night in January, an early goal from Tom Naylor sending us to a 1-0 victory.

The two sides first met in FA Cup action in 2005, when the-then Conference Brewers earned a replay at the ABAX by getting a 0-0 draw, then securing a 1-0 win over United at the Pirelli in a replay, Shaun Harrad getting the only goal of the game.

In total, we have won three games against Peterborough, drawing once and losing twice.

BURTON ALBION TEAM NEWS 

GOALKEEPER Brad Collins (groin) is still doubtful, while Jake Buxton (calf) and Liam Boyce (ankle) are battling to make the squad.

"Jake is back training and hopefully will be back in the squad," said manager Nigel Clough.

"Brad hasn't done any functional training yet so it might be too much of a risk. Liam has trained this week so he has an outside chance."

PETERBOROUGH TEAM NEWS

PETERBOROUGH will check on the fitness of George Cooper, Louis Reed and Matt Godden as they look to clinch a play-off spot today.

Midfielders Cooper (ankle) and Reed missed the win at Portsmouth through injury while striker Godden was absent in midweek because of illness. 

OFFICIALS

SCOTT Oldham is the man in the middle for our game today. In the 33 games he has officiated, Oldham has shown 97 yellow cards and one red. He has also officiated our draws away at Bristol Rovers and Sunderland this season.

The assistant referees will be Lisa Rashid and Callum Walchester, with Declan Bourne as the fourth official.
