Peterborough – Cardiff Preview
- It took 11 minutes of ‘Fergie time’ to get the job done against Derby, as Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough United showed their ‘never say die’ attitude at the weekend with two stoppage-time strikes to earn their first Championship victory since 2012/13. That win was invaluable in terms of confidence and morale following a demoralising 3-0 defeat on opening day.
- On that note, coming back from adversity was a hallmark of Peterborough’s fixtures during 2020/21, as they avoided defeat in eight of the 18 league games in which they conceded first en-route to promotion (W7, D1, L10). ‘Posh’ also enter this game unbeaten in seven second-tier home games (W4, D3), which includes a comeback victory here against none other than Cardiff City!
- Mick McCarthy’s Cardiff built on their opening day draw with a dominant 2-0 win at promoted Blackpool, yet the ‘Bluebirds’ didn’t soar when playing away at promoted sides last season (W1, L2), so they will be wary of slipping up here. A win could be key to their fortunes though, as the last time Cardiff began a league season with 3+ unbeaten games, they were promoted.
- The return of fans brings with it home advantage, a potential issue for Cardiff as they were amongst six Championship sides to average more points away than at home last season. In fact, only champions Norwich recorded fewer away league defeats than Cardiff’s five last term!
- Players to watch: Siriki Dembelé lifted the roof off the Weston Homes Stadium as he pounced on an individual error to get Peterborough off the mark with a win last time out. Also making his impact felt from the bench at the weekend was Cardiff’s Kieffer Moore, who scored despite being introduced in the 77th minute.
- Hot stat: Peterborough manager Ferguson is unbeaten in five of his six personal H2Hs with Cardiff, despite keeping just one clean sheet (W4, D1, L1).
