Darren Ferguson and his Peterborough United side welcome fellow promotion rivals Hull City to London Road in a crucial game on Tuesday night. 

Posh come into the game off the back of a shock 2-1 defeat away to relegation-threatened Burton Albion. 

Meanwhile, the Tigers picked up a 2-0 win at home against Bristol Rovers to edge one step closer to an immediate return to the second tier of English football. 

Coming into the fixture, both sides occupy the top two with Hull ahead by just goal difference, however Peterborough do have two games in hand on Grant McCann's side. 

Team news

Despite Ferguson's side suffering a shock defeat at Burton, he isn't likely to react by making too many changes here.

The Posh boss has no injury concerns so has a fully fit squad at his disposal. 

After another win on Saturday, McCann looks set to name an unchanged side. 

He will be without Brandon Fleming and Max Clark, with the pair struggling with injuries. 

Predicted lineups

Peterborough United (4-3-2-1): 

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

Hull City (4-3-3): 

Ingram; Coyle, Burke, Greaves, Elder, Honeyman, Docherty, Jones, Wilks, Whyte, Magennis. 

Ones to watch

Jonson Clarke-Harris - Peterborough United

In his 32 league starts this season, Clarke-Harris has scored a staggering 21 goals. The Englishman is starting to become more than just a goalscorer. This season, he has become more than just a goalscorer. He has bullied many o the top centre backs in the division and his hold up play is what has allowed Sirki Dembele and Sammy Szmodics to flourish this season. Being the top scorer in League One, it is vital McCann and his Hull side neutralise the threat he poses to stand any chance of getting the three points.

Mallik Wilks - Hull City

After joining from Barnsley on a permanent basis, Mallik Wilks has enjoyed a brilliant first season at Hull. In his 30 league appearances, the 22-year-old has grabbed himself 16 goals. The Leeds United academy graduate has an incredible turn of pace which often leaves defenders for dead. For a young lad, he has an abundance of composure which often allows him to keep his cool in front of goal.
