Millwall v Peterborough United - the stats

28 February 2017

All you need to know ahead of Posh visit

Millwall go in search of a ninth consecutive clean sheet as they welcome Peterborough United to The Den for a Sky Bet League One clash this Tuesday night (kick-off 7.45pm).

Unbeaten in 15 games, The Lions will also look for a third home win on the spin over The Posh, following victories in the League and Johnstone's Paint Trophy last season.

The Sky Bet League One table dictates that the meeting is something of a six-pointer, with both clubs perched just outside the Play-Off spots with two months of the campaign remaining.

It will be the 33rd time the two teams have met, with Millwall slightly holding the upper hand, having won 15 matches to Peterborough's 11.

The most recent of those, however, was a night that The Lions would rather forget, as Steve Morison's 79th-minute consolation was no more than that in a 5-1 defeat.

Shaun Williams' 90th-minute header sent Neil Harris' side into the Southern Section Second Round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy in September 2015, whilst in the home League fixture, a superb Lions performance saw them run away 3-0 winners, with Steve Morison (2) and Lee Gregory netting to keep up the promotion charge.

Peterborough United are notorious for a glut of goals at either end and whilst they have hit Millwall for five on three separate occasions in recent memory, The Lions have handed out some drubbings of their own historically.

In March 2012, Hameur Bouazza, Harry Kane and Andy Keogh were on target in a 3-0 victory at London Road, whilst under Mark McGhee in September 2000, Joe Dolan, Sam Parkin, Tim Cahill and Lucas Neill eased Millwall to a 4-1 victory in a season that would culminate in clinching the Division Two championship title.

Phil Barber, Tony McCarthy, Alex Rae and Jon Goodman were another quartet to put The Posh to the sword in January 1993, whilst goals from Terry McQuade, Micky Brown and Len Julians (2) defeated Peterborough by a score-line of 4-1 in November 1965.
