Posh return to competitive action at the Weston Homes Stadium with a home tie against Morecambe, who many pundits and bookmakers tip to be relegated.

Derek Adams’ men stayed up on the last day of last season but despite being tipped for another season of struggle, still have Cole Stockton in their ranks. One of the hottest strikers in the EFL last season in their side.

Grant McCann has a decision to make over his formation but will be able to call upon Nathan Thompson and Joe Ward this time around.

Posh are top of the league.

Ajiboye tries for a first Posh goal. Good work to take down a high ball from JCH, when the defender had a fist full of his shirt. Can’t geenrate enoguh power to get it past Ripley though from just inside the box.

Well, that could have been 3-1. McLoughlin sends over a cross from just over half way. Obika gets in between the two Posh centre halves and has a chance to volley at goal but scews it horribly over. Bergstrom will want a clean sheet and deserves one.

Good area from Tomlinson but headed out by Rawson.

That third finally seems to have broken Morecambe’s spirit. Joe Taylor has looked good and been involved since coming on. Ajiboye wins a corner with good running.

Nathan Thompson and Joe Tomlinson come on for Joe Ward and Harrison Burrows.

Burrows sends Joe Taylor away on the left, beats his man at first but help doesn’t get there quick enough and he has to wait for an option to cross to and the defender recovers.

Posh have now gone 4-2-3-1

Looks like Joe Taylor, Randall and Ajiboye behind JCH

Triple change 74 mins 3-0 Posh

Knight, Thompson and Marriott replaced by Ajiboye, Joe Taylor and Randall. Debut for Ajiboye.
