Preview | Peterborough United v Millwall

15 August 2016

Read our guide to Tuesday night's League One encounter

Millwall make the relatively short trip to Peterborough United aiming to maintain an impressive unbeaten start to the 2016/17 season.

The Lions kicked off the campaign with victories against Oldham (3-0) and Barnet (4-0 in the EFL Cup) and followed up with a 2-2 draw at MK Dons on Saturday, arguably the toughest test of their three opening games.

Peterborough matched Millwall by winning their first two fixtures, recording the same 3-2 scoreline with an away win at Rochdale on the opening day of the season and then hitting another three goals against League One newcomers AFC Wimbledon three days later in the EFL Cup First Round.

However, Jordy Hiwula, on a season-long loan from Huddersfield, was on target for Bradford City at the AMAX Stadium last weekend and his early goal was enough to ensure Grant McCann tasted defeat as Posh manager for the first time in his seventh game at the helm after a couple of caretaker spells during last season.

Peterborough United are available at odds of 2/1 with Sky Bet to win on Tuesday night, while Millwall can be backed at 13/10 and the draw 12/5.

Last season the two teams shared eight goals with Posh claiming all three points in a ding-dong match that finished 5-3 in favour of the home side. You can get a whopping 250/1 if you reckon there is going to be a repeat of that scoreline.

In the return fixture at The Den in February of this year, Steve Morison (2) and Lee Gregory were on target in a comfortable 3-0 success for The Lions. Sky Bet are offering 20/1 for another three-goal Millwall haul.
