            Peterborough vs Portsmouth Preview, Tips & Stats

            ABAX Stadium hosts Peterborough and Portsmouth this Saturday in League One. Portsmouth look to extend their lead at the top of the table whereas Peterborough aim to get back into the running for automatic promotion.

            Peterborough currently sit fourth in League One after 37 games. The Posh have 21 wins, eight draws and eight losses, leaving them on 71 points, four points from automatic promotion.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Peterborough have five wins.

            The visit to Cambridge United saw Ephron Mason-Clarke score the only goal of the game in the 55th minute to give Peterborough the 1 - 0 win, despite having less shots on target. Mason-Clarke was on the scoresheet again for The Posh, this time early on in the fourth minute against Exeter City. Tom Carroll got Exeter level before the halftime whistle, but a goal from Kwame Poku in the second half secured the 2 - 1 win for Peterborough.

            The Posh went behind early on against Northampton Town as Jon Guthrie gave them the lead in the ninth minute. However, goals from Mason-Clarke, Poku and Joel Randall gave Peterborough the 3 - 1 lead at halftime. Hector Kyprianou and Josh Knight also got on the scoresheet for The Posh as they picked up a 5 - 1 win. Ricky Jade-Jones opened the scoring for Peterborough in the 56th minute but Ademola Ola-Adebomi equalised for Burton with 20 minutes to go. However, late on both Knight and Jonson Clarke-Harris scored to bag a 3 - 1 win for The Posh.

            The last time out for Peterborough was against Stevenage. Nick Freeman scored a late consolation goal for Stevenage as a penalty from Harrison Burrows and goals from Jadel Katongo and Poku gave Peterboeough the 3 - 1 win.

            Portsmouth sit just above Peterborough at the top of the League One table. In 38 games, Pompey have 23 wins, 11 draws and four losses which leaves them on 80 points, five points above Derby County.

            In their last five games in all competitions, Portsmouth have three wins and two draws.

            Charlie Savage’s 89th minute goal was just a consolation for Reading as goals from Paddy Lane, Marlon Pack, Callum Lang and Colby Bishop gave Portsmouth the 4 - 1 win, despite having less of the possession. The visit to Charlton saw Portsmouth only manage three shots on target and fail to convert any of them as both sides had to settle for a 0 - 0 draw.

            Portsmouth were back to scoring and winning against Oxford United. Lang opened the scoring in the second minute but a penalty from Cameron Brannagan just four minutes later drew Oxford level. In the second half, Christian Saydee found the back of the net to secure the 2 - 1 win for Portsmouth. However, the next time out saw another 0 - 0 draw for Pompey. Even with the red card to Blackpool’s Jordan Rhodes in the 43rd minute, Portsmouth couldn’t convert any of their five shots on target as the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw.

            The most recent outing for Portsmouth was against Burton. A brace from Kusini Yengi gave Portsmouth the 2 - 0 lead just after the hour mark, and even with the late goal from John Brayford, Pompey held on for the 2 - 1 win.

            Peterborough and Portsmouth have met 36 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1961. Portsmouth have a marginally better record in the fixture with 14 wins in comparison to Peterborough's 13 wins, with the other nine games ending in a draw.
