With the holiday season are edging closer to us, the race for the promotion spots across all English leagues were also heating up day by day. In League One, many teams still stood a chance of securing the remaining two automatic promotion places since Wycombe Wanderers were running away with the top spot and the title. Two of the teams who were hoping to secure a positive result last weekend to keep their hope alive were Bristol Rovers and Peterborough United and they came up facing each other during match week 21.
Before the match, Bristol Rovers were the team who enjoyed the better form with four wins and one draw in their last five matches. This included their crucial 2-1 win over Ipswich Town that allowed them to catch up with Paul Lambert’s side and prevented them from widening the gap with the teams behind them. Their opposition in this match, though, was Peterborough, who were also chasing a promotion spot with their good form during the first stage of the season. Their recent five games in the leagues were decent, with two wins, two draws and a loss to their names. Still, Darren Ferguson’s side hoped to improve that form with three points in their trip to Bristol this time.
But, amid both teams had many shots towards each other’s goal, luck was simply not with them and eventually shared the points at the end of the day.

Meanwhile, using statistics, we will point out the noticeable tactical points in Kevin Maher’s tactics and Darren Ferguson’s tactics.
