Peterborough vs Walsall
England League One
Date: Tuesday, 27th February 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: ABAX Stadium (Peterborough).
Peterborough failed to find any consistency in the ongoing season and their promotion chances at the moment only exist on paper. The team is coming after drawing four matches on the trot and have managed only 1 win from their last 8. These are certainly not the encouraging numbers for a team that is sitting 6 points behind the play-off zone.
At the same time, Peterborough also failed to come good in home games. They managed a humble 8 wins from the 17 games so far, drew 3 and lost 6.
Walsall’s stats are no better, but no substantial achievement was expected from this team at the start of the season. Last season, they finished at 14th and this term they might end up in a similar position. Right now, they are 17th on the log and will be happy to have pulled 5 points clear of the relegation zone.
The away record for Walsall this season is nothing but underwhelming. Only 3 wins came from the 16 so far, drew 5 and lost 8. Their current away run is of without a win in seven (3D, 4L).
Peterborough vs Walsall: Head-to-head
Interestingly, Walsall are unbeaten in the last 9 meetings with Peterborough, 3 wins and 6 draws. However, none of those wins came away from home.
All of those nine matches registered fewer than 3 goals.
Ultimately, their last four head-to-head meetings at Peterborough’s home ground are draws.
Peterborough vs Walsall: Prediction
Both teams will go into this match thinking that the three points are theirs to take. But, I do doubt the abilities of these sides with inconsistencies coupled with lack of quality in the squad letting them down on most occasions.
Therefore, expect a low scoring game and the most likely outcome will be a stalemate, but I would put my money on a game between sides in low confidence.
Peterborough vs Walsall: Bet Tips
Under 2.5 goals for 1.87 odds is a potential banker.
Full-Time Draw at 3.75 odds is for brave punters, but it comes with substantial risk.
