Posh look to playoffs while Bolton could gain automatic promotion

The automatic promotion positions are now beyond Peterborough United, however, they will want to end the regular season on a high against a side they could potentially meet in the playoff final, Bolton Wanderers. A victory for the Trotters could bring them automatic promotion should other results go their way.

Peterborough United

Peterborough faced a setback in their League One promotion hopes with a 2-0 defeat against Cheltenham. Manager Darren Ferguson opted to rest key players, turning focus towards playoff preparation. Despite a much-changed lineup, they fell to a home loss against Cheltenham. However, their guaranteed fourth-place finish offers a silver lining. There’s still a slim chance to clinch third place if they can overcome Bolton with a significant goal margin. Their recent home victories indicate potential for a strong finish and playoff performance.

Jeando Fuchs and winger Michael Olakigbe are likely to miss out with injury.

After making changes in midweek, Darren Ferguson could make further rotations as he looks to manage his squad’s fitness ahead of the playoffs.

Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers clinched a vital 2-0 victory against Port Vale last Saturday, intensifying the League One promotion race as they head into the final day of the season. Aaron Collins broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute, followed by Cameron Jerome’s late goal in stoppage time, narrowing the gap to three points behind second-placed Derby.

To secure promotion, Bolton must defeat Peterborough and rely on Derby slipping against Carlisle United, while also needing a significant swing in goal difference. Nevertheless, even if the promotion bid falls short, extending their unbeaten streak to seven matches and maintaining momentum is crucial as they prepare for potential playoff contention.

Bolton will draw confidence from their dominant 5-0 victory at the Weston Homes Stadium in February 2023 as they aim to replicate that success in their upcoming clash with Peterborough.

Nathaniel Ogbeta is a doubtful and Ricardo Santos faces a fitness test, but is expected to make it. Dion Charles came back from an injury layoff against Port Vale and is expected to keep his place.
