Peterborough United failed to win at home for the eighth consecutive match on Saturday as they were defeated 1-0 by Accrington Stanley.
Manager Steve Evans is determined to stop the rot, as The Posh cling on to 2nd place with the chasing pack closing in. His side remain unbeaten on the road this season, but if they want to seriously challenge for the League One title, Posh will need to amend their home form, and fast.
“We all know we have to be much better at home and are working hard to put it right. We’re showing top six form away but bottom six form at home. That has to stop if we want to be in the mix at the end of the season,” Evans told the Peterborough Telegraph.
“Not only that but we owe it to our bread-and-butter fans to improve.
“A lot of what we did on Saturday was right but a lot of what we did wasn’t right. Will I make changes? Let’s just say we’ve worked on a team shape yesterday and today with a group of players I hope can be relied upon to win a football match.
“We’ve kept the spirits high and I’m glad we’ve got another home game so soon. We have to put it right quickly, we all want to.”
“I don’t know Joey Barton personally, but he was an exceptional player in his time at the highest level. Fleetwood are a team that like a lot of others in this league, are geared to have a good go at promotion and they will be difficult opponents for us.”
Joey Barton’s Fleetwood Town head to London Road sitting in 11th place in the League One table, after losing their first match in three games against League leaders Portsmouth on Saturday.
