DRFC Peterborough v Doncaster Preview

Peterborough United and Doncaster Rovers meet at London Road on Tuesday night on the back of wins at the weekend.

Form


Peterborough
The Posh have seen results improve since the arrival of their third boss of the season Jim Gannon.

Since his arrival they have won four and lost four of the eight games played.

They have won their last two games beating Play off hopefuls Sheffield United 1-0 at home before recording their first away win of the season on Saturday when they beat Watford 1-0.

Despite their recent improved form they are still rooted to the bottom of the Championship and would probably need to win at least seven of their final ten games to survive the drop.

So far this season at home they have won six, drawn five and lost seven.

Recent home form: WLWWLL

Doncaster
The Rovers are in good form once again and have now gone unbeaten in their last four games.

They beat Derby County 2-1 at home on Saturday to move onto 48 points and probably one win away for guaranteeing Championship football next season.

They are only four points outside the play off places and a good finish to the season could see them sneak a play off place in a very tight and competitive league.

Last time out away they drew 1-1 at Preston last Tuesday and almost grabbed all three points, only to see Billy Sharp`s penalty excellently saved in the second half.

So far this season away from home they have won four, drawn six and lost eight.

Recent away form: DWLWdL

History

The two sides have met on 16 occasions at London Road with the home side winning 9, Rovers winning 4 and 3 drawn.

A win would take Rovers through the magical fifty point barrier, then they could possibly think about the play offs. Won't be easy, Peterborough have picked up recently. Probably playing more relaxed as they look doomed already.

They are not bad at home, should be a good game on current form.
