Peterborough are set to host Walsall on Tuesday night, this will be David Oldfield’s first game in charge following the dismissal of manager and club legend Grant McCann.
Peterborough failed to find any consistency in the ongoing season, this has cost manager and club legend Grant McCann his job after he was sacked on Sunday night. The team is coming after drawing four matches on the trot and have managed only 1 win from their last 8. These are certainly not the encouraging numbers for a team that is sitting 6 points behind the play-off zone.
At the same time, Peterborough also failed to come good in home games. They managed a humble 8 wins from the 17 games so far, drew 3 and lost 6.
Walsall’s stats aren’t any better, but no exciting achievement was expected from this team at the start of the season. Last season, they finished at 14th and this term they might end up in a similar position. Right now, they are 17th on the log and will be happy to have pulled 5 points clear of the relegation zone.
The away record for Walsall this season is nothing but underwhelming. Only 3 wins came from the 16 so far, drew 5 and lost 8. Their current away run is of without a win in seven (3D, 4L).
Walsall are unbeaten in the last 9 meetings with Peterborough, 3 wins and 6 draws. Although, none of those wins came away from home.
All of those nine matches registered fewer than 3 goals. Ultimately, their last four head-to-head meetings at Peterborough’s home ground are draws.
