Peterborough United are looking to get their League One playoff march back on track with a victory over Cheltenham at the Weston Homes Stadium on Saturday afternoon with the Robins down in 17th after another winless run.
Cheltenham drew with Lincoln City in midweek to keep them hovering just above the relegation zone, although they did defeat Fleetwood Town 1-0 just before this. On the other hand, a 2-0 loss to Derby County, a 4-0 loss to Portsmouth, a penalty shootout defeat to Plymouth Argyle and a 4-0 loss to Barnsley keeps the club sitting on only one win in the past five weeks.
Fears of relegation are not as strong as they once were, but with the club plummeting down the league table once again, Cheltenham are sitting above MK Dons in 22nd by only seven points with them now losing the most games outside of the bottom three with 18. Worse yet, they've also scored the fewest goals outside of the relegation spots with 26 on the board and 46 goals let in.
As for Peterborough, they head into this one with a fantastic victory over Shrewsbury Town that saw them move above the club and into eighth with great hopes of igniting their playoff charge once more. Jonson Clarke-Harris scored once again that day, as Frankie Kent scored the winning goal with just three minutes left of regular time.
Clarke-Harris has now scored 19 goals and sits above Conor Chaplin and David McGoldrick by three goals each with him also registering four assists from the 34 games. This averages out to a goal every 154 minutes from 81 shots and a goal conversion rate of 23%
The Posh now sit below the bottom six by seven points, although they do have a game extra to play over Derby County in sixth which could end up throwing them above Wycombe Wanderers in seventh with a win. Peterborough have still only managed to draw three times this season, although this does mean just 17 wins and 14 losses - this is the most games lost inside the top half of the table.
