Sammie Szmodics was set to start but Jonson Clarke-Harris has become available after Posh appealed his four game ban for historic tweets.

Posh go in search of their first ever victory at The Ricoh Arena and will have to upset the odds to do it given Coventry are flying high in fourth place and haven’t lost a home league game all season.

  • 3-0 Coventry FT
  • Clarke-Harris available again after club appeal ban
  • Posh still looking for first away point of the season
  • Coventry sit 4th with 100% home record
  • Matt Godden likely to feature for Coventry

Miscontrol this time from Ward as Taylor loops up a pass over the top to him on the right side of the box. Goal kick.

First Posh forray into the attacking half. Good opening for Ward as he ran away from Maatsen on the right but Grant delayed the pass too long and he had wondered offside, so had to check back and delay the pass, leading to it being cut out when he eventually played it. In general, Coventry pressing well.

A couple of dangerous balls into the Posh box first headed out by Ronnie but the second from Butler is headed up and hot out, it falls to Waghorn on the six yard box but Grant is there to take it off him and hoof clear. All Coventry first few minutes.

Route one ball from the off from Coventry up to Waghorn, heavy touch though and Thompson knocks it back to Cornell. Coventry have three at the back, with two up top, looks like O’Hare in behind.

Just around 10 minutes to go until kick-off. Can that Clarke-Harris news boost the squad to pull out a performance that can deliver the first away points of the season?
