Peterborough’s only away match finished in a 5-1 mauling at Bournemouth but their record at London Road is far better; Posh having won all four of their league and cup encounters on their own patch. Boosted by Tuesday’s Carling Cup success against Cardiff, Gary Johnson’s men can carry their home form onto the road as they head to Plymouth and they’re a tasty 9/5 with Paddy Power to leave Home Park three points better off.
It looks set to be a high-scoring affair on the south coast given that Posh have struck 14 times across five games in all competitions and bet365 could pay for chalking 11/10 against a match total of three or more goals. The men that have been doing the damage for Peterborough are Aaron McLean, Craig Mackail-Smith and George Boyd and of that trio, the latter is 2/1 (William Hill) to notch his fifth of the campaign at some stage.
Brentford are still looking for their first win but they can remedy that at Griffin Park, where they are 10/11 with Betdaq to get the better of Rochdale. Also in line for a home win are Jaxx.com’s 23/20 favourites MK Dons, whose morale boosting midweek extra-time victory against Blackpool should be followed up by a win at home to struggling Swindon.
