TEAM NEWS

Former Dulwich Hamlet midfielder Erhun Oztumer is pushing for his first start for Posh and wide man Jon Taylor is pushing for a recall after an injection to ease a knee injury. Defender Gaby Zukani is with the DR Congo and misses out.


VIEW FROM INSIDE THE CAMP

John Gregory: "It's a very competitive division this season. There is no Wolves and every team is capable of beating a rival on their day. But I expect Peterborough to be up there. They've got a strong squad with a very experienced manager."


Darren Ferguson (Peterborough manager, pictured): "If we play as well as we did against a good Oldham side last weekend we will have a good chance of winning."

 

WE’VE MET BEFORE?

Two previous League meetings last season both ended in wins for Crawley. At London Road in August 2013, Gary Alexander's two goals sealed a 2-0 win. Then in March a late penalty by Matt Tubbs earned Reds a 1-0 victory.


FORM GUIDE

Reds have won seven, drawn two and lost six in all competitions this season. Peterborough's last seven games have produced two wins, two draws and three defeats."
