Peterborough to Win

Plymouth Argyle enters this fixture to end their five-match losing run. They have their work cut out for them as Peterborough have only lost once in the same period and that too was a defeat in their new surroundings of the Championship. We back the hosts to qualify at the expense of their rivals as they have done so on three of their last four H2H meetings.

Over 2.5 Goals

Historically, this fixture has gone from dull 1-0 results to goal-fests finishing with 1:5 scorelines. Interestingly enough, five of the last seven duels between Peterborough United and Plymouth Argyle have finished with three or more goals on offer. With their defensive plans still forming at the start of the campaign, we expect this League Cup meeting to have plenty on offer.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Ryan Lowe’s Plymouth Argyle have a tendency to lose their focus and go missing. They have conceded goals in their last six league outings, being shut out thrice in the process. Petersborough has not fared better in this period and has only kept one clean sheet. With both Peterborough and Plymouth conceding goals at a whim, we expect them to continue this trend and give the scorers plenty of action.

Peterborough vs Plymouth Fixture Preview

Peterborough United

The Posh are back in the Championship, bringing England’s second-tier competition to the Weston Homes Stadium. Darren Ferguson needs to be credited for their promotion but the tough part of their success comes now. In their opening day defeat to Luton Town, they seemed to be out of their depth and need to improve at the back if they are to survive in the Championship. It will be a tall order as even in their last five League One outings, they only kept a single clean sheet and conceded six goals in the process.

Plymouth Argyle

Ryan Lowe’s Plymouth Argyle started the new campaign, in the same manner, they finished the last one. They have now lost eight of their last nine league fixtures, drawing the exception. The Pilgrims need to arrest their decline or an 18th place finish in the 2020/21 League One campaign would be relished over the destination they are heading to. Pressure is on Ryan Hardie and co. to start delivering at the tip of the attack and they will surely moan about the service they are getting from their lacklustre midfield.
