Correct score Peterborough 1-2 Sheffield United 44/5
First Goalscorer Billy Sharp 28/5

Peterborough were on course for a much needed three points in midweek when they lead Birmingham 2-0 but they had to settle for a point in a game that ended 2-2. It extends their winless run to four although it did end a three-game winless streak. They sit 22nd in the table which places them in the relegation zone. Posh need to find a regular goalscorer as none of their player has got more than five goals this season.

At London Road, it has been a mixed bag of late with two victories, two draws and two defeats in their last six. In just one of their last seven Championship home matches Peterborough have kept a clean sheet. Jonson Clarke- Harris has found the back of the net in two of his last five home matches. They will be looking to bounce back from a heavy home loss last time out going down 4-1 to Coventry.

Sheffield United will be looking to build on their recent 2-0 defeat of Luton built on a goal each from Rhian Brewster and Jack Robinson. It means it is now five victories in their last seven for United and just one defeat in eight. The Yorkshire side sit 12th in this table and are eight points from the play-offs. Billy Sharp is in decent goalscoring form with three goals in his last six.

Away from Bramall Lane, the Blades have lost just one of their last five with victories in three of these. Jayden Bogle and Billy Sharp have both grabbed two goals from their last five matches. In just one of their last nine road matches have United failed to find the back of the net. Five of the last six goals they have conceded on their travels have come in the final 25 minutes.

Peterborough vs Sheffield United: Match Stats

Over 2.5 goals has happened in each of the last six Peterborough games in all competitions and this one should be no different. Sheffield United are also capable of goals netting in eight of their last nine on the road. Backing over 2.5 goals looks the way to play this game with the reverse fixture producing eight strikes.
