Competition: League One
Market: Peterborough win
Odds: 4/7 @ 888sport
With a chance to potentially break into the automatic spots on Tuesday night, Peterborough will host a struggling Bristol Rovers from behind closed doors.
Starting with the hosts, despite enduring a worrying run of form when opening December, Peterborough have really impressed in 2021. With their sights set on securing an automatic route to the Championship this year, the Posh know that victory in midweek could see them break into the top-two. Putting in another professional display over the weekend and landing a deserved 1-0 win away at Ipswich, Darren Ferguson’s men find themselves enjoying a four-match winning run across all formats. Really catching the eye with their continued displays in the final third, their recent purple patch was highlighted by a stunning 5-1 romp against Portsmouth while on EFL Trophy duties on January 12th. More impressive, it is also worth highlighting that Peterborough have won each of their last four straight League One matchups at the Weston Homes Stadium.
As for the visitors, while Peterborough might have really impressed since opening the New Year, the same cannot be said for a Bristol Rovers side struggling to find any real form. Freefalling their way down the League One table and with just their goal difference stopping them from dropping into the relegation zone, the Pirates put in another worrying display over the weekend. Hit with a deserved 2-0 defeat away at Oxford, Paul Tisdale’s men have now lost each of their last five straight matchups across all formats. Showing some glaring issues at the back and facing a tough trip to the title-chasers in midweek, it should also be highlighted that they hold a worrying record against Tuesday’s hosts. Suffering a 2-0 loss when they last faced off against the Posh back in November, we’re backing a similar home victory in midweek.
