PNE Team News
North End will be without Greg Cunningham who will be getting a scan to discover the extent of the calf injury which forced him off on Wednesday night.
Josh Murphy is nearing a return to action, looking to join in with training with the rest of the group next week, but this game will come too soon.
Tom Barkhuizen remains sidelined with his injury.
Following their promotion last season, it’s not yet been the return to the Championship that Peterborough United would have wanted.
They head in to the weekend sat 22nd in the division and two points below the dotted line, but with at least one game in hand on all the sides around them in the table.
The Posh lost talisman Siriki Dembele in the January transfer window to AFC Bournemouth, but there’s still plenty of talent left in their squad, with the likes of Jonson Clarke-Harris and Jack Marriott attacking options for Darren Ferguson.
This will be the 26th meeting between these two sides, with Peterborough edging the head-to-head record with ten wins to PNE’s nine.
Peterborough have conceded more goals than any other Championship team this campaign, having let in 59 goals in their 28 matches so far.
Andrew Hughes could come up against his former side on Saturday, having made 102 appearances for the Posh between 2016 and 2018.
Our Last Meeting
North End came out on top in the reverse fixture between these sides, with Patrick Bauer scoring the only goal of the game on his long-awaited return from injury.
The centre back headed home to earn his side the three points on his first league appearance in eight months.
Man In The Middle
Tim Robinson will referee his 14th Preston North End fixture when he takes the whistle on Saturday.
He has taken charge of two PNE games so far this season, the away draw against Bristol City and the defeat at Bloomfield Road.
Robinson has refereed 25 matches this term, showing 107 yellow cards and five reds.
