A proud open­ing day record

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - POSH PLYMOUTH -

Posh have not lost an open­ing day Foot­ball League fix­ture at Lon­don Road since the 2005-06 cam­paign when Mark Wright’s team lost 1-0 to his old club Ch­ester in a League Two clash. Posh have won their last five open­ing day home games against Bris­tol Rovers (4-1, 2006), Rochdale (3-0, 2007), Bris­tol Rovers (3-0, 2010), Crys­tal Palace (2-1, 2011) and Swin­don (1-0, 2013).

Posh have played Rochdale away on the last three open­ing days, win­ning twice and los­ing once. Ply­mouth will be sup­ported by close to 1500 mem­bers of the Green Army.

They sold out their ini­tial al­lo­ca­tion of 1000 tick­ets ear­lier this week so were given an ad­di­tional 500.
