Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has been speaking to the Peterborough Telegraph about his side’s upcoming clash with Tranmere Rovers, saying that he expects a tough game under the floodlights at Prenton Park tonight.

Peterborough United head into tonight’s game brimming with confidence having won their last four League One games, keeping five clean sheets in their last five games. They come off the back of thrashing Rochdale 6-0 at the weekend and will be hoping to put on another clinical display tonight.

Tranmere Rovers, on the other hand, have won just one league game so far this season, so Micky Mellon will be hoping that his side can turn around their poor form at the start of the campaign with a good result against Posh.

Posh boss Darren Ferguson has been speaking ahead of the game, saying that he does not know which formation Rovers will play, having used four different formations in as many halves of football. He said:

“It’s tough to know what we to expect formation-wise from Tranmere. They’ve played four different ways in the last four halves of football. They’ve played three at the back, a midfield diamond, a 4-3-3 and a 4-1-3-2.

“What I do know is we will face a hard-working team with plenty of experience, good footballers in midfield and a goal threat. A Tuesday night away game in Tranmere will always be tough, but as long as we keep our standards high we should be okay.

“I was pleased we managed to maintain our momentum at the weekend after a two-week break. We are in a good place, but there are always ways to improve.”
