Preview: Peterborough United vs. Northampton Town - prediction, team news, lineups

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's League One clash between Peterborough United and Northampton Town, including predictions, team news and possible lineups.

Peterborough United will attempt to claim a fourth consecutive victory in all competitions when they welcome Northampton Town to the Weston Homes Stadium for Tuesday's League One encounter.

The visitors, meanwhile, will be looking to continue their promising run of form, having avoided defeat in each of their last four matches.

After losing four consecutive matches, Peterborough have got back on track with three straight victories, beginning with a 3-0 win over Blackpool in the EFL Trophy semi-finals.

Posh went on to record a 1-0 victory in the derby with Cambridge United, before they edged out Exeter City via a 2-1 scoreline in Saturday's home fixture.

Although Ephron Mason-Clark saw his opener cancelled out by Tom Carroll, Peterborough still managed to pick up all three points thanks to Kwame Poku's 68th-minute winner.

The fifth-placed side are now five points clear of Oxford United in seventh position, while they are seven points adrift of the automatic promotion places.

With Posh looking to keep their promotion hopes alive, they will take encouragement from the fact that they have won each of their last four home league games against the Cobblers.

Northampton will be confident that they can trouble Darren Ferguson's side after taking eight points from their previous four matches.

In their most recent outing, Louis Appere netted an 80th-minute equaliser to ensure that Saturday's home meeting with Charlton Athletic finished in a 1-1 draw.

That result took Northampton's tally to 49 points, leaving them in 12th position ahead of Tuesday's trip to the Weston Homes Stadium.

The Cobblers will now turn their attention to Saturday's contest, where they will have the opportunity to record a second straight away win after beating Burton Albion 2-0 in their most recent road trip.

Jon Brady's side also have the chance to complete a league double following a narrow 1-0 victory in August's reverse fixture.

Team News

Peterborough midfielder Jeando Fuchs is expected to miss the rest of the season after picking up a knee injury against Cambridge United last month.

The hosts are also unable to call upon goalkeeper Will Blackmore and forward Jacob Wakeling due to their injury issues.

Forward Ricky-Jade Jones is a doubt after his substitute appearance against Exeter was cut short in stoppage time.

Northampton, meanwhile, are contending with an injury list that features Akin Odimayo, Danny Hylton, Ali Koiki and Tyler Magloire.

Appere could be rewarded with a starting place after he came off the bench to score the all-important equaliser in Saturday's draw with Charlton.

Ben Fox dropped out of the starting lineup at the weekend, but the midfielder could be brought straight back into the side for Tuesday's home fixture.

Peterborough United possible starting lineup:
Steer; Katongo, Knight, Edwards, Burrows; Kyprianou, Collins; Poku, Randall, Mason-Clark; Mothersille

Northampton Town possible starting lineup:
Moulden; Willis, Sherring, Guthrie, Brough; Fox, Hondermarck; Bowie, Leonard, Pinnock; Simpson

We say: Peterborough United 2-1 Northampton Town

Peterborough are starting to build momentum thanks to a three-game winning run, and we think that they will continue their encouraging spell of form by claiming a narrow victory in Tuesday's home fixture.
