Peterborough United will play hosts to Plymouth Argyle this weekend at the Weston Homes Stadium with the Posh aiming to get their playoffs hopes back on track just as the Pilgrims look to get back to the top of the table.
It's been a crazy few weeks for these two sides, as both of them have now dropped way of their expected marks for the season. The Posh have managed to win two and lose two in February so far, and this has seen them keep two clean sheets as well, but also let in six goals.
This run started with a 2-0 victory at the New Lawn Stadium over Forest Green Rovers just before Bolton Wanderers would smash them 5-0 at home in what is easily their worst result of the season. In fact, this has put Darren Ferguson's men on the ropes in the playoff battle. A 1-0 loss to Fleetwood Town would come soon after, although Ferguson's men returned to the win column with a 3-0 victory over Morecambe.
It now leaves the Posh in ninth in the table with 15 wins on the board and now 13 losses - only Port Vale have lost more in the top half of the table. They've still managed to outscore most sides in the league, however, as their 48 goals is only bettered by Derby County, Ipswich Town, Plymouth and Sheffield Wednesday.
As for Plymouth, they are desperate for all three points here. The club come into this one now in second and behind Wednesday by goals difference. This comes as a result of them letting in 10 goals more (32) than the Owls and having scored one less goal. Argyle have now also lost four times in the league but still boast the league's joint-most wins with 20 alongside Wednesday.
The Pilgrims have also played a game extra than the league leaders, although they now sit eight clear of Ipswich in third and fans at Home Park should still be very confident in earning a stunning promotion to the Championship this season. In fact, with them now in the EFL Trophy final, it is turning out to be arguably the best season in Plymouth's recent history. Ryan Hardie scored an equaliser against Cheltenham on Tuesday, as the club went on to win the semi-finals battle with Cheltenham Town on penalties.
Last time out in the league, Plymouth drew 0-0 with Fleetwood Town. Argyle have now also beaten Oxford United and Portsmouth 3-1 in League One since losing 1-0 to Wednesday at Hillsborough.
