Posh Thinking

April 22, 2017

 EXPERIMENTATION TIME

Peterborough United are experimenting with a 3-5-2 formation.

This is their final League One home match of the season against Bristol Rovers at 3 pm on Saturday 22nd April 2017.

Centre-back Jack Baldwin returns to the starting line-up in place of right-back Michael Smith.

It looks like Marcus Maddison or Callum Chettle, and teenager Lewis Freestone will be starting the game in wing-back positions.

Bristol Rovers need to win the game to maintain any hope of an end-of-season play-off place.

Posh won 2-1 at The Memorial Stadium with a last-minute goal from Tom Nichols back in October 2016.

Posh: Luke McGee, Jack Baldwin, Michael Bostwick, Andrew Hughes, Marcus Maddison, Lewis Freestone, Chris Forrester, Leo Da Silva Lopes, Callum Chettle, Craig Mackail-Smith, Tom Nichols.

Substitutes; Junior Morias, Brad Inman, Anthony Grant, Jerome Binnom-Williams, Andrea Borg, Mark Tyler, Paul Taylor.

Bristol Rovers: Joe Lumley, Robert Harris, James Clarke, Ryan Sweeney, Tom Lockyer, Chris Lines, Stuart Sinclair, Byron Moore, Billy Bodin, Jermaine Easter, Ellis Harrison.

Substitutes: Steve Mildenhall, Lee Mansell, Christian Montano, Ryan Broom, Rory Gaffney, Joe Partington, Jake Clarke-Salter.

Referee: Richard Clark.
