Sports Mole previews the relegation clash between Peterborough United and Ipswich Town

Peterborough United and Ipswich Town meet in a Championship relegation battle at London Road this weekend.

Just five points separate these teams ahead of kickoff, but it is the hosts who are most in need of a win, approaching the game in 23rd place.

Victory could see Darren Ferguson's side climb out of the relegation zone and close the gap on 19th-placed Ipswich to two points.

The Tractor Boys' recent loan signing Jay Tabb could feature in some capacity after joining the club from Reading on a month-long contract.

Peterborough striker Tyrone Barnett, who has been sidelined through injury, could make the bench after completing 70 minutes for the reserves midweek.
