The Posh have home advantage, two rounds of the Cup already under their belt (a win on penalties after a 4-4 draw with Salford City and a 2-1 victory over Doncaster Rovers) plus a 10-game unbeaten run in their favour, but that will not overly concern Leeds United.

Daniel Farke’s team have far greater quality in depth throughout the squad and, despite two defeats to Preston and West Brom in the last three games, will be looking to carry on from where they left off with a 3-0 win over Birmingham City on New Years Day.

They will, however, be without goalkeeper Illan Meslier who is suspended and changes to the team that beat Birmingham can be expected. Darren Ferguson, the Peterborough boss, is likely to keep the line-up that edged past Derby County 3-2 on Monday.

Will Peterborough add to their impressive run of recent results or will the Leeds United’s extra quality prove decisive? Here's how to get a Peterborough vs Leeds United live stream where you are.
