Shrewsbury vs Peterborough Preview – 05/11/2019 League One
Posh slipped up at Bloomfield Road at the weekend despite breaching the Seasider’s defence on three occasions. Defensive errors littered their display with two own goals and penalty concession helping the hosts to a much-needed three points.
Although Darren Ferguson’s side sit third and are the highest scorers in the third tier, they do have trouble on the road and this won’t be easy for them. They’ve won just one of their last five matches away from home and have picked up just three victories on their travels so far. It’s now no clean sheet on their travels since August 24th, although the majority of those have been more than compensated for at the other end of the field.
Shrewsbury were defeated to league leaders and early pace setters Wycombe at the weekend although just a single goal settled the contest. It was always likely to be tight and predictably, there was little between the two teams. Although some fans grumble about Sam Ricketts’ defensive tactics, he is a tactician who knows how to pick up points against better sides and they once again worked hard at the back to nulify the Wycombe threat.
At home, they boast a 3-3-1 record and only Fleetwood have come here and left with all three points. Last time out, they beat Sunderland with a perfect defensive display which kept the Black Cats off the scoresheet. They’ve kept five clean sheets in eight in Shropshire although Salop will have to do with Ro-Shaun Williams who was sent off at the weekend for attmpting to push Adebayo Akinfenwa!
Peterborough’s Holy Trinity Are on Fire
There have been plenty of admiring glances in the direction of Ivan Toney in recent weeks although Posh have shared the goals between their three stars this campaign. The holy trinity were all on the scoresheet once again at the weekend with Marcus Maddison netting from the spot, Mo Eisa inventive clipped finish and Toney’s poachers finish. Shrewsbury may find it tough to keep all three of them quiet and must decide which of the talented trio to keep tabs on.
Maddison Hoping for More Freedom
Although he’d barely started before Saturday, Blackpool’s Callum MacDonald did an excellent job shackling Marcus Maddison. He is Posh’s creator-in-chief and if he isn’t taken out of the game, their attacking impetus tends to dwindle.
As outlined, they still have multiple threats even if Maddison has an off-day, although Rickett’s may want to re-watch MacDonald’s performance to help illustrate to his side how they can potentially thwart Peterborough’s mercurial playmaker.
Busy Evening for Pierre and Beckles
Both Aaron Pierre and Omar Beckles have been excellent this season at the heart of the Salop defence and both are likely to be tested on Tuesday. Despite being defeated at the weekend, Pierre made four very important interceptions against his former club whilst Beckles made seven clearances and a couple of decisive blocks. They will be key to Shrewsbury getting anything from this tie.
