Peterborough United vs Sunderland Match Preview
Peterborough have a better record away from home than at London Road this season and could be set for another defeat on their own pitch against Sunderland.
Posh entered the Easter weekend double-header of League One fixtures still with a decent chance of pipping Doncaster Rovers for the final place in the play-offs.
Darren Ferguson’s side had been on a good run of form with three consecutive wins to nil before their Good Friday trip to Fleetwood Town (result not known at the time of writing).
They were hoping for a favour from Monday’s opponents Sunderland three days before their meeting at the ABAX Stadium because the Black Cats hosted Doncaster on Friday, which Peterborough would have viewed as an opportunity for them to close the gap to Rovers.
Going into that game, Sunderland had lost only once in 24 matches since Christmas and that shows just how difficult Jack Ross’ side are to beat as they target automatic promotion.
With comfortably the fewest away defeats in the English third tier this term, Sunderland are backed to add another victory to their tally and boost their prospects of going straight back up to the Championship.
