Tip Reasoning

Peterborough went into last weekend’s match at Kenilworth Road off the back of a timely win, though they were unable to make any headway against an unforgiving Luton side. After that disappointment, Steve Evans’ men will be hoping to bounce back.

There was little for Steve Evans to get excited about last weekend; the Peterborough boss looked on as his side were all to easily torn apart. Peterborough won’t be the last side to leave Kenilworth Road after receiving a battering; Luton are a very good side, make no mistake about that, though Posh made it very easy for the hosts by simply offering zero resistance at one end, while they offered absolutely nothing going forward either.

Inconsistency has held Peterborough back this season (and in previous seasons for that matter). At times, Posh look like a side going places; they play attacking football, create lots of chances and really hurt teams, then at others, they look like a side void of ideas. Inconsistency haunts many teams, but Steve Evans’ men are certainly one of the League One’s main culprits.

Ahead of this match, the visitors aren’t likely to be too scared. Posh have struggled to really get going at home this season, as they’ve delivered several below par efforts. They’ve won just two of their last six at ABAX Stadium, while their underlying numbers are far from pleasing. Evans’ men are currently averaging a measly 1.12 expected goals for, which doesn’t exactly scream attacking quality, while they’ve given up an average of 1.57 at the other end.

Charlton haven’t always been at their best on the road, but they have delivered numerous performances which suggest that they could hurt Posh on Saturday. Most recently, the Addicks went to New Meadow – one of the toughest places to go and get a result in this division – and returned with a convincing 0-3 win. Lots of teams find it tough to create against the Shrews, so the fact that Lee Bowyer’s men made light work of both creating and scoring tells us that they’re not a side to be taken lightly. What’s more, Charlton have also gone away from home and beaten the likes of current league leaders Portsmouth, Southend and Burton this season, while they are one of only three teams to prevent Luton from winning at Kenilworth Road – something that Peterborough couldn’t have been further away from doing last weekend.

With the betting the way that it is currently, Charlton are hard to avoid. The Addicks have looked like a side on the up of late, while they’ve made a habit of going away from home and playing well in big games. In contrast, Posh are still far too inconsistent, while they come here of the back of an embarrassing effort last weekend. Backing the visitors to record their third straight win represents a slither of value and is thus worthwhile.
