Fleetwood Town are back on home soil this weekend and on Saturday they welcome Peterborough United to Highbury Stadium for a 3pm kick-off, and we've got all you need to know in our match preview.
Fixture: Fleetwood Town v Peterborough United
Competition: Sky Bet League One
Date & kick-off: Saturday 16 December 2023 (3pm)
Venue: Highbury Stadium
The visitors to Highbury currently sit 4th in Sky Bet League One on 38 points after 20 games. Peterborough United have won seven matches at home and have picked up three points four times on their travels, and they'll be looking to make it five this weekend on the Fylde Coast.
Head coach Darren Ferguson saw his side demolish fellow promotion hopefuls Oxford United at the Weston Holmes Stadium. First half goals from Hector Kyprianou and Ricky-Jade Jones gave Posh the lead at the break, with Ryan De Havilland scoring in the 90th minute to seal three vital points.
In their last league match on the road, Posh drew 2-2 with surprise package, Stevenage. The hosts were two goals to the good at the break, however goals from Joel Randall and Ricky-Jade Jones helped them earn a valuable point with their strikes in the second half.
The player for the Cod Army to watch is Kwame Poku. The tricky winger has scored eight goals in 26 appearances this season, and has been the one to watch for Posh this season. With fellow teammate Ephron Mason-Clarke also scoring seven in the league, with three goals in the cup competitions. Poku - a Ghanian international - started his career off at Colchester and after three years at the Club, he made the switch to Peterborough and the 22-year-old hasn't looked back.
This will also be Fleetwood Town's last home match before Christmas, with a trip to Portsmouth the following weekend before it's back to Highbury on Boxing Day.

A LOOK BACK AT ONE OF THE FIXTURES AGAINST PETERBOROUGH
Back in August 2019, Fleetwood Town made the long trip down to Cambridgeshire to take on Peterborough United on the opening day of the 2019/20 season. Then head coach, Joey Barton helped guide his side to a 3-1 away win at the Weston Holmes Stadium, with fans' favourite Harry Souttar scoring four minutes into the game from a corner.
Forward Josh Morris made it two moment later with a lovely chip over the Posh keeper. The hosts pushed and pushed to get back into the game, but it was Danny Andrew's second half free-kick from 25-yards that sealed the win and three points to see Town top of the league standings.
