A proud opening day record
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.
