Boro and The Posh both go into the game hopeful of a turnaround in fortunes
Stevenage travel to Peterborough United tomorrow (Saturday) hopeful of adding to their hosts’ recent wobble in the league.
The Posh have not won in their previous four league matches, including Monday’s night’s 2-0 reverse at Walsall, although Boro themselves have failed to pick up a point in their previous two league matches.
Peterborough’s defeat at Walsall, in front of Sky Sports’ cameras, saw Darren Ferguson’s men fail to close the gap on table toppers Wolves and second-placed Leyton Orient.

The gap between Peterborough and Orient is now six points, while a defeat on Saturday for United could see them slip down to fifth in the table should Brentford and Preston North End both win.
Stevenage go into the game in 20th place in Sky Bet League 1 with 14 points from their 16 matches. Last week Boro booked their place in the next round of both the FA Cup and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, but in recent league games they have picked up back-to-back defeats against Rotherham United and Wolves without registering a goal after winning their previous two games without conceding.

Stevenage will hope to have captain Jon Ashton back following a knee injury, while Chris Day was injured in the first-half against Rotherham and was replaced at the break by Steve Arnold. Roarie Deacon is available following suspension.
