Match Preview: Peterborough United

1 February 2021

Tranmere Rovers turn their attention to the Papa John’s Trophy for quarter final action against Peterborough United at Prenton Park on Tuesday night (7pm kick off)

Rovers approach this game following four straight league wins and most recently beat Morecambe on Saturday. To get to this stage of the competition, Tranmere have beaten Manchester City U21s and Leicester U21s.

Peterborough United ply their trade in Sky Bet League One and currently sit 4th in that division. The Posh have fought off West Ham U21s and Portsmouth, who they thrashed 5-1, to reach the quarter final.

Team news 

Keith Hill has reported no new injury concerns as of Monday and will have the same group of players available to select.

One to watch 

Forward, Sikiri Dembele

Dembele came through the youth set ups of Dundee United and Ayr United in Scotland before making the move to Grimsby Town in 2017. 

He settled into life at Blundell Park quickly and won the EFL’s Young Player of the Month in October of that year.

In the summer of 2018, he signed for Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee after some eye catching performances in Cleethorpes.

What the winger lacks in height, he more than makes up for in speed and agility. This season he has six goals and seven assists in all competitions and will be a player Rovers will need to keep quiet on the night.
