Sheff Wed vs Peterborough Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Sheff Wed

Wednesday need to do the impossible to progress. However, they were unlucky to lose the first leg 0-4 and created plenty of chances. The Owls will certainly try and give it a shot so an aggressive all-out-attack approach can be expected from them.

Continue to be missing 4 players due to long-term  injuries. Among them are the important centre-back Famewo and the key playmaker Byers. The manager confirmed he will be using all of his regulars as he is not giving up hope just yet.

Peterborough

Peterborough come into the game with a commanding 4-0 lead from the first leg. The Posh had been playing some excellent football all spring and they will feel confident that as long as they avoid a major collapse they will progress.

Using time-wasting tactics can be expected with Peterborough likely to be sitting deeper and looking for counterattacking opportunities. The only player set to miss due to an injury is the left-back Ogbetha. Since he’s been out winger Burrows has played very well in the role so Posh are pretty much at full strength.
