Bitesize Prediction: Peterborough vs Charlton – 28/02/23

Competition: League One

Market: Peterborough win

Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport

Desperate to make up some ground in the play-off hunt in midweek, Peterborough will welcome Charlton to the Weston Homes Stadium on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Peterborough might have been enduring another downbeat run earlier in the month, Darren Ferguson’s side have found a welcomed boost. Last seen over the weekend putting in a stellar display on home soil as they claimed a 5-2 romp against promotion contenders Plymouth, the Posh have now secured back-to-back League One victories. Smelling the chance to lay down another marker on Tuesday night, the midweek hosts are also desperate to make up some ground in the play-off hunt. Racking up eight third-tier strikes in their consecutive wins, fans around the Weston Homes Stadium will be calling on attacking talisman Jonson Clarke-Harris to spearhead their charge here. Including a brace in last weekend’s action-packed victory against Plymouth, the 28-year-old has now notched five goals in his last six appearances. Appearing to have turned a much-needed corner over the past fortnight, Peterborough are rightfully tipped as a standout pick.

As for the visitors, while Charlton might have claimed a crucial 1-0 victory away at relegation scrappers Forest Green earlier in the month, it appears that was just a minor boost for Dean Holden’s side. Last seen over the weekend putting in another toothless display as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat at home against Sheffield Wednesday, the Addicks are in the midst of an extended wobble. Almost sat in League One limbo and still battling it out in the bottom-half of the table, the Londoners have now lost three of their last four outings. With that run highlighted by a shock 2-1 loss at home against Fleetwood on February 15th, Tuesday’s guests should also be worried by a downbeat record against the play-off hopefuls. It should be noted, Charlton have failed to win any of their last nine straight meetings against Peterborough – a run that stems all the way back to 2015.
