Peterborough welcome the Wycombe Wanderers to the ABAX Stadium this weekend in an important weekend of League One football. Both sides are in contention for the Play-offs this season, and three points this weekend could directly strengthen this challenge.
Peterborough sit in fourth in League One after 12 games. The Posh have six wins, three draws and three losses, leaving them on 21 points, six points adrift from automatic promotion.
In their last five games in all competitions, Peterborough have two wins, two draws and one loss. All of the action against Bolton came just before halftime. Jonson Clarke-Harris opened the scoring for The Posh, but Victor Adeboyejo equalised within a minute. Gethin Jones was also sent off for Bolton in the added time of the first half, but despite having an extra man, the game ended 1 - 1. In the Third Round of the League Cup, Peterborough faced Mansfield Town. Clark-Harris grabbed a brace, but penalties from Will Swan and Lucas Akins meant the game finished 2 - 2 and went to penalties. Josh Knight, Ronnie Edwards and Clarke-Harris all missed as Mansfield won 3 - 1.
However, The Posh bounced back against Bristol Rovers. Archie Collins and David Ajiboye both scored in the 2 - 0 win for Peterborough. A goal from Edwards in the 72nd minute looked like it would win all three points for Peterborough, but a goal from Jordan Gibson in the 96th minute for Carlisle meant the game finished 1 - 1.
The most recent outing for Peterborough was against Lincoln City. Ajiboye and Joel Randall both scored in the second half to grab a 2 - 0 win where Lincoln failed to register a single shot on goal.
Wycombe sit in eighth after 11 games. The Wanderers also have six wins, but one draw and four losses, leaving them on 19 points and one point from the Play-offs.
In their last five games in all competitions, Wycombe have three wins and two losses. Miles Leaburn opened the scoring for Charlton, but in the early stages of the second half, Freddie Potts drew Wycombe level. However, Slobodan Tedic and Corey Blackett-Taylor both scored late on to give Charlton the 3 - 1 win. Wycombe returned to winning ways against Carlisle. Jokull Andresson was sent off in the 29th minute for Carlisle as Luke Leahy converted his penalty and Sam Vokes scored in the 2 - 0 win for Wycombe.
Josh Scowen scored first for Wycombe in the first half, but Colby Bishop equalised early in the second half. The game was level until Conor Shaughnessy popped up with a winner in the 98th minute to give Portsmouth the 2 - 1 win. Potts and Leahy both scored, along with a brace from Dale Taylor in a 4 - 1 win over ten-man Fleetwood who had Ben Heneghan sent off in the 63rd minute.
The last time out for Wycombe was against Stevenage in the Football League Trophy. Vokes scored the only goal of the game as Wycombe won 1 - 0.
Peterborough and Wycombe have met just 31 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming in 1973. Not much separates the two teams with Peterborough having 11 wins in the fixture and Wycombe’s 12 wins, with the other eight games ending in a draw.
