Sheff. Wed. play host to Peterborough United at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon, with high hopes of improving on their excellent record against the opposition, having managed to conjure up a win from 5 of the previous 7 games.

The last time the two teams met at Sheff. Wed. was just over four years ago, in February 2005, the The Owls carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League One match.
