Salford City will be disappointed by their form in recent matches. In their last six fixtures, they have managed just a single victory to go with three defeats and two draws. Results have dried out for the club after a promising start to the season and they have fallen below the promotion qualification spot. Now, Salford must switch into knockout mode to progress further in the FA Cup.
Peterborough United will be content with their recent form. They have earned three wins along with two draws and a loss in their last six matches. Peterborough would have been scratching themselves for not having finished the job at their home stadium in the first match. The club have never been eliminated in round one for 17 years and will certainly hope to extend that run.
Salford City will miss the services of Liam Shepherd, Jason Lowe, Stevie Mallan, Conor McAleny, Jacob Chapman and Ibou Touray. As for Peterborough United, Joe Ward, Kwame Poku, Nathan Thompson, Joe Taylor and Lucas Bergstrom won’t be available.
