PREVIEW: Sky Blues U23s host Peterborough United

Luke Tisdale's side return to action...

7 December 2021

The Sky Blues U23s host Peterborough United at the Alan Higgs Centre this afternoon, with kick-off scheduled for the Professional Development League clash at 1pm. Here’s everything you need to know about our opponents.

The Opposition

The Posh currently find themselves 5th in the Professional Development League following their 0-1 defeat against Barnsley.

It was a game where both teams created good opportunities in front of goal.

Daniel Gyollai made two excellent stops in the first half, one inside the opening 20 seconds as he kept out a Joe Ackroyd effort and then to divert a deflected cross away from danger.

However, former City player David Bremang scored from close-range two minutes into the second half to give the Tykes all three points.
