Peterborough United midfielder George Boyd has said that he is looking forward to facing an in-form Rochdale side as the Posh return to action after the international break.

Peterborough United were scheduled to face Shrewsbury Town last week, only for the game to be called off due to the international call ups at the Shrews. The club are in strong form having turned around their poor start to the season, climbing up the table and into 9th place with a game in hand on a number of the teams ahead of them.

Now, speaking to the club’s official website, midfielder George Boyd has said that the team are looking forward to testing themselves against Dale after an unwanted break. He said:

“We didn’t really want the break if I am honest, but we have had a good week’s training under our belts and looking forward to facing a side that are in good form and playing some excellent football. The team are still very much full of confidence despite the break and we are looking forward to the game coming up.

“With a new side, it does take time to gel but the team have been doing well defensively and that gives us a platform to get forward and score goals and we have players who can do that. The supporters have been great in the last two home games against Ipswich and Sunderland and I really enjoyed the atmosphere at MK Dons. Hopefully, we can give them something to shout about on Saturday.”
