We need to win this, can't really see it myself for some reason, but stranger things have happened.

It would be a massive surprise to get any points from this game. We have not won any of our last 14 away (5 points out of 42) and Peterborough have scored at least 2 goals in 13 of their 19 home games and only once failed to score (0-0 v Bristol Rovers). So it appears we would need to score at least 2, something we have done in 9 of our 41 games. Let's hope they don't put 7 past us as they recently did against Accrington.
The referee, Lee Swabey, has not issued a red card all season so we be able to keep 11 men on the pitch and pray that we don't get any more injuries.
The only upside I can see is that we get an extra day to prepare for the Ipswich game.

Anything other than a spanking will be a moral victory. At least keep our GD in the
same ballpark.

We might need a deliberate hand ball penalty and sending off early doors to get anything tomorrow evening but you never know.

Even GPC has given up. Where's his match preview that we all enjoy reading  Cry

I wonder what the reaction will be if we do pull off a result tomorrow, it would be great to see because none of us clearly feel we can get anything other than zero points and a bad goal difference out of it.

We can all hope though.

It's difficult to see how we can get anything out of this game, with so many missing from a team that wasn't great to start with. If we concede early,  we could be in for a hiding.

Heaven help us if  Mitchell gets injured as even Berry was injured last week.

Honestly think they will batter us...they have assembled a class squad even after losing Toney (who they'll get another bunch of cash for as he's rumoured to be off to either Leeds or West Ham in the Summer for 35 million!!!)

Our squad is simply nowhere near good enough for L1 & I can see a couple of red cards for us due to getting frustrated with how easy they will toy with us.

Will be the most embarrassing derby defeat for many a year unfortunately...

I just hope that some sort of planning behind the scenes is happening regarding next season, rather than the powers that be, acting surprised when the inevitable deserved relegation is finally confirmed.

Still, unlike Posh, at least we'll have some elite supporters next season  Grin

Do not fear, I am here! The Friday night move threw me, especially as I still thought it was Wednesday today!

Anyway, a trip up the A45, A605 and A1139 to face Cambridgeshires second team, Peterborough United, affectionately known as The Posh.

They sit in second place in the league, 76 points from 40 games, meaning they are just three behind leaders Hull and five ahead of third placed Sunderland. An eight goal win against us will see them go top before the rest of the teams play catchup on Saturday.
They have the best home record in the League, winning 14 of their 19 games so far, and scoring a league best 44 goals at home in the process (10 ahead of the next best Lincoln). Only Blackpool and Hull have left London Road with maximum points, although Peterborough were knocked out of the two big Cup competitions at home by Cheltenham (EFL) and Chorley (FA Cup) too.

Current form wise, 10 wins in their last 16 games has propelled them to the brink of a return to the Championship, a stage they were last at in 2013. Manager Darren Ferguson is in his third stint as boss, 56 wins in 110 games since returning in January 2019.

They, like us didn't play midweek, that has facilitated this change to a Friday night fixture, last time out they won 3-0 at Swindon and in their last home game on Easter Monday they drew 1-1 with Sunderland.

Led in the goalscoring stakes by Jonson Clark-Harris, a £1.2m signing from Bristol Rovers in August, he has hit 29 goals so far this season, 27 in the league and is only one of two ever present starters in their squad (the other being Mark Beevers). Clark-Harris is ably assisted by midfield pairing Sammie Szmodics and Siriki Dembele who have 13 and 12 goals respectively. Mo Eisa got a rare start on Saturday as they switched from their usual 4-5-1 formation to 4-4-2.

No current Cobblers connections in their ranks so moving swiftly on to the head-to-head.... there have been 71 meetings between us and our rivals, they hold the upper hand with 33 wins to our 20. We have failed to win any of our last nine meetings in all competitions, and we have to go back to April 2006 for our last victory over the swamp-dwellers.....a Scott McGleish goal gave us a 1-0 win that day at London Road. Our last three games have all ended with 2-0 victories for our opponents, the last of those games was of course the return fixture this season when goals in each half from Thompson and Brown gave them a comfortable victory.
We have won 8, drawn 7 and lost 19 times at their place. Famous games of the past include a 6-0 Boro win in April 1984, a 5-0 Cobblers win there in 1985, and a 4-0 Cup defeat in 1994.

Making a Friday night trip up from Devon to The Fens is referee Lee Swabey. On the league list since 2015 he issued his first ever League red card to Cobblers player Jason Taylor in our 2-0 defeat at Barnet. More recently his last Posh appointment came in a 2-0 win at Bristol Rovers back in November, and his last Cobblers game saw us win 2-0 against Salford at the PTS back in October 2019.
This season he has taken charge of 27 games and doled out 62 yellow cards, but not a single red......yet!

I have a sneaky feeling that the injury updates regarding AJones and Kioso may be slightly over cautious, and that one or both may well start tomorrow...   Wink

I wish you hadn't reminded them that an 8 goal victory will see them go top!

Iím in mental turmoil over this one.

I watched Dembele take apart Swindon last week and I think at least 4-0 to them.
I then think back to the game at Sixfields earlier in the season and I think that anything under 7 would be a bonus.
Then I think .. why not, itís just 90 mins 11 v 11 - anything can happen? The team we all support never seem to do the expected. Youíd have thought we would have picked up one good result in all those recent 6 pointers wouldnít you?? So why not?
As Mr Disney once said ... if you can dream it, you can do it. Who knows maybe Mickey Mouse and NTFC will be trending on Friday night for good reasons not the expected bad?!
Up the Cobblers!

The last time I missed a derby was 1981, when I was in handcuffs by 2.40pm Wink We went on to win 1-0 that day, and if that should happen tomorrow I'll be dancing on the ceiling. Realistically, though...  Embarrassed

I fear the worst .
Every player has to be 100% on top of their game to even compete with them .
We have injuries and players playing with injuries .
We have no pace and no strength up front .
McWilliams will have his work cut out .
If the keeper is going to kick the ball out from goal kicks - send it into the river nene to waste time .
