Match preview

Will this be the day Peterborough United's relegation is confirmed?

On Easter Monday, the Posh came from a goal down to beat Blackburn Rovers 2-1, possibly delaying the inevitable.

Sammie Szmodics equalising in the 83rd minute before Jack Marriott bagged the winner just three minutes from time.

So, Grant McCann's men have taken eight points from their last 15 games, but is it too little too late?

Peterborough are currently seven points below Reading and safety so if they fail to win this one, or Reading win at Hull, they'll be relegation.

This is Posh's fifth season in the second-tier and, unless they pull of a miracle, it'll be the third one that's ended in relegation.

Nottingham Forest meanwhile are dreaming of going the other way as they're aiming to get into the Premier League after 23 seasons away.

On Monday night, Steve Cooper's men demolished ten-man West Bromwich Albion 4-0 at the City Ground.

Brennan Johnson, Ryan Yates, Jack Coleback and then Sam Surridge all on target as Forest made it six wins from their last seven.

So, the Reds are currently fifth, looking to cling onto a play-off place.

Will Nottingham Forest leave London Road fifth or, perhaps, even higher in the table?
