Overall this season they have recorded a decent enough W10 D5 L7 record on their travels it has just for the Park a bit for them really since Christmas. all but one of the seven away defeats that Peterborough have suffered this season in the league have happened since Boxing Day so it has been a tough second half of the season for them.
