History of the Peterborough United v Brighton & Hove Albion fixture

Brighton face a trip to Peterborough United at London Road Ground on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Seagulls have won 4 of the 14 games compared to the host's 7 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in April 2002, with Brighton inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the Posh in a League Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Peterborough United have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. The Posh's have scored 10 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 11.

Brighton's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Seagulls have conceded 8 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Peterborough are stuck down in the relegation zone of Nationwide League Division Two with a return of just 13 points from their 16 games thus far. Brighton are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 27 points from 16 games.
