Darren Ferguson described Peterborough’s 4-0 defeat away at Cardiff City on Wednesday evening as “a humiliation and a complete embarrassment” as he saw his side slip to their 18th league defeat of the campaign.
The Posh have taken just one point from their last six games, while they have only won one of their last 14 league fixtures.
Nonetheless, they remain just two points from safety with a game in hand over 21st-placed Reading, who they face in a huge six-pointer next week.
Sixteen of Peterborough’s 20 points have come at the West Homes Stadium this season, meaning that they have picked up a higher percentage of points on home turf (80%) than any side in the Championship.
Ferguson’s side have the worst defence in the division, conceding 59 goals and failing to keep a clean sheet since the
Peterborough’s horror show at Cardiff is likely to see Ferguson make multiple changes, with Jonson Clarke-Harris and Sammie Szmodics among those who could come in.
Mark Beevers was named in the original starting lineup in South Wales before being forced to pull out because of a hamstring injury, but may be restored to provide some leadership in the backline.
There could also be a return for Nathan Thompson, who missed the midweek game due to a muscle complaint.
A calf injury forced Preston left wing-back Greg Cunningham off against Huddersfield and he is likely to miss this weekend’s game. Josh Earl should replace him.
Lowe revealed after the midweek game that Emil Riis Jakobsen has been struggling with a knock and therefore started on the bench, but the Lilywhites boss may decide to restore his top scorer to the starting lineup after the goalless draw.
