ANYONE who has been following my tips this season will know Peterborough have been one of my star teams.

Hopefully we've all won money backing the overs and both teams to score in their matches.

I advised both bets for their League One play-off semi-final first leg at MK Dons and they duly lost 3-2 after being reduced to 10 men.

And my first-scorer pick Craig Mackail-Smith did the business although it's that late second goal which could prove so crucial.

Despite trailing I fully expect Peterborough to turn the tie around at home. Darren Ferguson's side averaged three goals a game at London Road during the regular season and incredibly 26 of their 27 matches produced over 2.5 goals.

Of course defending has been an issue although it improved near the end of the season. Peterborough conceded more than any side who stayed up so both teams to score at 4-6 with Stan James must be taken.

Over 2.5 goals is just as skinny at a best 8-13 with Coral so instead take a risk on over 3.5 at
7-4 with William Hill.

Scotland striker Mackail-Smith has scored first in two of the three meetings this season and is
9-2 at William Hill to do so again. Striker partner George Boyd is bigger at 6-1 with the same firm.

MK Dons are 8-11 favourites with Betfred to qualify and 7-2 at Blue Square to win on the night.

Peterborough are a biggest 6-5 at Stan James to reach the final and 5-6 with Ladbrokes and William Hill to win in 90 minutes.

Any one-goal win for the Posh will force extra time and to win after 120 minutes it's 10-1 Peterborough, 14-1 MK Dons at Blue Square. The firm go 14-1 Posh on penalties and 28-1
MK Dons.


  • Over 3.5 goals (7-4, William Hill)
  • Peterborough to qualify (5-6, Ladbrokes, William Hill)
