My Peterborough United team: Posh will need to hassle the best possession side in the Championship

Peterborough United take on Swansea City, the team with the best possession stats in the Championship at the Weston Homes Stadium on Wednesday (March 16, 7,45pm).

Swansea have had the ball for an average of 63% in their 35 matches this season and yet sit 16th in the table! Mind you Posh are 13th in the possession table and are bottom of the table that really matters.

Swansea present unique problems though so I’ve picked a Posh team to counter that. The London Road playing surface could help Grant McCann’s team if they can force their opponents into hurried passes.

I am employing a 3-4-1-2 formation and assuming Sammie Szmodics is fit enough to return, but Steven Benda has been ruled out until April.
