FLEETWOOD TOWN

Fleetwood are playing again after an astonishing run of form, which has seen the Cod Army pick up 9 points from their last three games. Their latest win was a 1-0 win away at Wycombe Wanderers, with Paddy Madden scoring the all important goal. The other wins have come against Doncaster Rovers and AFC Wimbledon. 

With being solid at the back against second in the league Wycombe, there will be plenty of positives for Joey Barton and his side as they look to push up into the play-offs after their recent run of form. 

Kyle Dempsey, Jordan Rossiter, Harrison Biggins are still out. Ched Evans is suspended for this game after picking up a red card at Adams Park.

PETERBOROUGH UNITED

Peterborough are coming into this game with 6 wins from their last 6 matches. Darren Ferguson's men are going to try to make it three back to back clean sheets, and goal keeper Christy Pym will be looking to keep his run of form going between the sticks.

The Posh are sat second in Sky Bet League One after their impressive 4-0 home win over Southend United. Ivan Toney scored two on Tuesday night with Siriki Dembele and Jack Taylor scoring the other two goals.

Toney is suspended for the match at Highbury after he picked up his 10th yellow card of the season in the same match. He will be a big miss for Ferguson, so the likes of Dembele, Taylor and Mohamed Eisa will need to step up.

ONES TO WATCH – MOHAMED EISA & SIRIKI DEMBELE

Mo Eisa has scored 13 goals in 23 games this season. He has yet to score since the 7th December, but with his pace and trickery, he will be a big treat to Joey Barton and his side on the flanks. Eisa has previously played for Greenwich, Cheltenham Town and Bristol City before moving to London Road. With 15 goals in 33 games this season, he will be looking to fill the boots of the suspended Toney.

Siriki Dembele has scored in his last three matches. He is another player Town fans should be aware of this weekend as he had scored six goals in 27 matches, but is more known for his assists to Eisa and Toney. The 23-year-old started off his career at Grimsby Town before moving to Posh.

Match Reports

Report: Town victorious against promotion hopefuls Peterborough

15 February 2020

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town picked up three vital points on Saturday after beating promotion hopefuls Peterborough United 2-1 at Highbury.

Joey Barton’s team made it four wins in four after an impressive display against Darren Ferguson’s Posh, with Callum Connolly and Wes Burns scoring the goals for Town.

Connolly got his first goal for the Cod Army with a superb strike after 15 minutes, with Dan Butler levelling the score line minutes into the second half. 

The game was up and running from the early exchanges with both teams trying to find their feet in blustery winds, but it was the visitors who had the first real chance from the penalty spot.

After miscommunication in the defence, Cairns was left in no-mans land and brought down Siriki Dembele. The referee Martin Coy pointed to the spot.

Fleetwood’s man between the sticks stood strong and palmed away Mo Eisa’s spot kick, which allowed the hosts to regroup and settle down after a frantic start.

Town were very quick in responding and minutes later put away their first real opportunity. Connolly fired in his first goal for the Cod Army after left-back Danny Andrew picked out the youngster inside the Peterborough penalty area.

Ten minutes later, there was a reply from Peterborough as they pressed for an equaliser. Jack Taylor had a chance from a free-kick, however he could only see his effort go wide.

Just before half-time, there was chances for the hosts to double their lead. Burns got the better of Niall Mason before whipping in a wicked ball across the box, which just missed a group of players in the middle.

Peterborough did have two chances before the interval through Joe Ward and Eisa. First Ward tried his luck from range, but was denied by Cairns, and then Eisa saw his headed effort blocked by Lewis Gibson.

The Cod Army inside Highbury could only ask for more of the same in the second half, and that is what they got. Andrew assured fans it would be as his bullet of a strike beat the keeper, but not the far post as it bounced back out. Another wake-up call for Ferguson.

Ferguson’s side didn’t take long after to make their mark. Against the run of play you’d have to say, Butler’s low driven shot guided into the corner of the net from 25 yards to level proceedings.

Madden had a chance moments later to put his side back in front with a dipping effort, but Christy Pym was on hand to grasp the ball from danger.

As the game entered the last quarter of an hour, the Cod Army found themselves back in front. Burns’ individual effort saw him beat two defenders before he slotted his shot into the bottom corner to see the crowd go wild in the Memorial Stand!

Peterborough’s substitute, Idris Kanu was brought on to make a difference and had half a chance to get his side back into the game, but his tame effort was collected by Cairns.

On top of an excellent team performance, the Town supporters, who gathered at Highbury, helped their side win every ball possible with an orchestra of chanting echoing around the stands.

After ninety plus minutes of wind, rain and pure grit and determination, the referee blew for full-time meaning Town have now won four games of the bounce.

Fleetwood weathered Storm Dennis and Peterborough’s unbeaten run on Saturday, and it’s another top half clash against Portsmouth at Highbury next Saturday.
