This game is the first against the two teams just above us, and while a draw will be ok given the games in hand to come, it would be an immense statement to the league if we overtake Peterborough by beating them, even by a mere 1-0, especially on their own patch.
After a stellar return from injury against Oxford, and given he was withdrawn in the second half without injury, Jones has to start and also has to be low odds to score for us. He provided one and hit the bar at home on Friday, and he will be super keen to add to his tally.

There was a blow for Posh pre-match as star forward Dembele was absent with a bad back. Harrison Burrows stepped into the side while midfielder Ethan Hamilton was replaced into the starting line-up by Louis Reed.
But Posh problems seemed minor compared to those of the visitors. Both players who scored in the opening day win over Posh – Dion Charles and Tariq Uwakwe – were among many Accrington absentees.
