Peterborough host Burton in SkyBet League One on Tuesday night. Darren Ferguson's men are one of the title favourites and his side are certainly in good form. They beat Hull City away 2-1 at the weekend and have now won five on the bounce.

Burton's start to the season hs been disastrous. The club are still reeling from the loss of Nigel Clough ins the summer and his replacement, Jake Buxton, cannot stop the rot.

They have just one win all season which was five weeks ago at home to Accrington Stanley. Their last result was a 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers AFC Wimbledon.

  • Team news

Peterborough come into this fixture without any new injury woes after the impressive win at Hull.

Darren Ferguson will be hoping the attacking duo of Jonson Clark-Harris and Siriki Dembele will continue to impress after a good start to the season. 

Burton will be hoping that their young full-back Reece Hutchinson will be available after a spell out with a foot injury.

The Brewers remain without John Brayford and Michael Bostwick after they were ruled out with quad and calf injuries respectively. 

  • Predicted lineups

Peterborough: (3-5-2)

Pym; Thompson, Beevers, Kent; Ward, Taylor Szmodics, Brown, Butler; Dembele, Clark-Harris.

Burton: (4-3-3)

O'Hara; Eardley, O'Toole, Hughes, Daniel; Gilligan, Quinn, Lawless; Akins, Vassilev, Hemmings.

  • Ones to watch 

Peterborough United - Jonson Clarke Harris

Peterborough once again look like a force to be reckoned with in League One and this is largely due to their impressive attacking football.

The spearhead of this is Clark-Harris, who is the top goalscorer for Posh after scoring four this season.

The new signing joined from Bristol Rovers to replace the goals of Ivan Toney. They are massive shoes to fill, but Clark-Harris is doing his best to do so. 

Burton Albion - Kane Hemmings

Jake Buxton will be relying on Hemmings to get the goals in this game.

The centre forward stepped into the side to replace Liam Boyce following his departure last year but has struggled to make the same impact. He did score the equaliser that earnt Burton a point at the weekend, so he will be hoping to start a goalscoring run. 

  • When they last met

These two sides already faced off this season. Back in September, they drew 3-3 in an enthralling EFL Trophy group game. 

17-year-old Flynn Clarke scored three minutes in, whilst an Ethan Hamilton goal ensured Posh raced into a two-goal lead in the first half. However, Steven Lawless pulled one back before the break for the visitors.

Burton turned 2-1 into 2-3 after a quickfire double from Joe Powell in the second half. Niall Mason equalised for Peterborough before they won the penalty shoot-out.
