Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

 

James Ray

“Posh will be disappointed to have lost their unbeaten streak but they can’t afford to get too down on the defeat. They’ve got to win this one, especially given that they lost to another rival in Northampton Town earlier this season.

“Cambridge picked up some good draws in recent outings, holding Portsmouth and Wycombe to 0-0 ties. However, with bragging rights on the line, I’m leaning towards a home win.

“I’m backing Posh to get back on track with a 2-0 victory over their rivals.”

Peterborough United vs Cambridge United prediction: 2-0

Who is this?

Luke Phelps

“This really should be a must win for Posh if they’re to stand a chance of finishing inside the top six this season, and given how well they’ve performed so far, I think it could be a home win.

“Cambridge have been decent though and they’re in a good vein of form, and they might yet fancy their own chances of a possible top six finish, so it won’t be easy.

“But I think Posh have too much for them in this one.”

Peterborough United vs Cambridge United prediction: 2-1
