19/09/2023 9:45 pm
Peterborough United will be looking to end a four-game winless league run when they face Cheltenham Town at the Weston Homes Stadium in League One on Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, the visitors are still searching for their first win of the season after picking up just a point from their opening seven matches.
After beginning the League One season with three successive victories, Peterborough have experienced a drop-off in results in recent weeks, losing three straight league matches before facing Leyton Orient on Saturday.
Although they managed to end their run of defeats, Darren Ferguson’s side had to settle for a point after Leyton’s Omar Beckles cancelled out Harry Kyprianou’s opener.
Despite progressing through two rounds of the EFL Trophy amid their winless league run, Ferguson will be disappointed with his side’s recent form and their current midtable position.
Having conceded 10 goals in the last five matches, the Posh will be looking to rediscover the defensive resilience they exhibited in the first two matches of the season when they claimed successive clean sheets.
Cheltenham have endured a poor start to the 2023-24 campaign, with their nine competitve matches yielding one draw and eight defeats.
