My Peterborough United team: Young player holds the key for Posh

Peterborough United host a Middlesbrough side chasing promotion to the Premier League on Saturday (April 2).

When Posh travelled up north to the Riverside Stadium they were humbled 2-0 by a Middlesbrough side who had only one recognised defender on the pitch and they still didn’t register a shot on target.

A bit of pace to terrify 37-year-old Sol Bamaba would have been just what was required. I also expect Chris Wilder’s men to commit men forward in attack, therefore bringing Ricky-Jade Jones straight back in to allow him to run in behind could be crucial.

Goalkeeper Steven Benda captain Oliver Norburn have been ruled out through injury and Ronnie Edwards looks unlikely to recover from Covid in time.

I am employing a 3-4-1-2 formation.
