Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
Peterbourgh United will be aiming to get off to a flying start to their Carabao Cup campaign when they take on Cheltenham Town on Saturday afternoon. Peterborough were not at their sharpest in back-to-back preseason defeats to Coventry City, but they are still seen as hot favourites to win the EFL Cup opener. A man to keep an eye on in the home side will be summer signing Jonson Clarke-Harris, who is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders.
The Robins, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Bristol City, and seeing that the Posh are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the visitors will return to Gloucestershire empty-handed. When the two teams met in a friendly three years ago Peterborough crushed Cheltenham 5-1.
