When speaking to Wanderers boss Keith Hill in his pre-match press conference, he informed bwfc.co.uk of one knock to an unnamed player, following on from Tuesday’s Leasing.com Trophy clash at Accrington Stanley.

Head to Head

Wanderers and Peterborough United have faced each other 11 times since their first clash in 1977.

The Whites have won seven of those games, with one draw and three wins for Posh.

In our last meeting with Peterborough, it was a memorable one for the club as it cemented our promotion to the Sky Bet Championship on the final day of the 2016/17 season.

Jem Karacan, David Wheater and Adam Le Fondre were on the scoresheet as we ran out 3-0 victors.
