Speaking to the club’s official website, Lincoln City manager Michael Appleton has said that he is wary of the attacking threat Peterborough United have, with the Imps heading to London Road this weekend.

So far this season, Peterborough United have shown that they have one of the most potent attacks in League One, with trio Ivan Toney, Mo Eisa and Marcus Maddison all starting the season in electric form. Toney, Eisa and Maddison have scored all of Posh’s League One goals apart from two, with the other two being scored by Josh Knight.

This weekend it is Michael Appleton and Lincoln City who will be tasked with stopping Posh this weekend. The Imps boss will be hoping to build on last weekend’s win over Sunderland but has said that it will be tough to stop Posh’s potent attack. He said:

“It’s going to be tough. They’re a very dangerous side, and there’s probably a lot of League One managers up and down the country that would love the kind of artillery that Peterborough have. They tend to go with a diamond in the middle of the park to try and free Maddison up behind the two strikers.

“If they go with anything different that is something we’ll have to prepare for on the day, but they back themselves to score lots of goals. It could potentially be a very good game of football.

“We have some dangerous players ourselves, don’t forget.  The key for us is to try and take their threat away and nullify the amount of balls that get into them three and finding them in dangerous positions.”
