Posh v Northampton (Checkatrade)

Post by tonyp » 26 Sep 2017, 07:57

According to the Northampton Official site
Peterborough United have declared this match an ALL TICKET fixture. This means there is no admission on the day without a ticket.
Does the Posh really think that this game will attract an enormous following? If it does it will be one of the few Checkatrade Trophy games that does!!

I doubt it, I guess it will be a police request to prevent fans from mingling together in the ground, fans might be the wrong word here

Northampton just drew way to MK Dons. They're still in the relegation zone though.
Whatever we all think of the Checkatrade Trophy we have to remember that DMac wants to win it.
This game should really be a walkover. But so should Oldham have been.
2,566 Cobblers fans went to MK but there will be a lot less coming here.

The 566 also went to Rotherham. The 2000 stayed at home.
They might just see the Cobblers beating Posh this time and bring a few of them here.
There are at least two problems that I see with this competition.
1. Even if we lose we still have to play another game.
2. DMac wants to win it

We can't possibly want Northampton to win. And yet we want out. I'm just not looking forward to it.

4-4-2 please. Pivotal moment in McCann's season.

Awful things have a habit of doing it in threes. I shudder to think.

Like I refused to guess the outcome if the Oxford match, I feel the same about the Cobblers...we are running well bellow par. Well below.

Northampton Chronicle.
Hasselbaink says Cobblers ‘must keep doing the right things’ to end goal drought.

Great and great.

I am interested in this competition, playing local rivals is a good idea, and it would be great to go to Wembley. I too will be listening in on I follow

I'm interested too. But I am more interested in Posh getting promoted. I won't be able to go to Wembley but if I were I would prefer it to be in a Play-off final than a Checkatrade final.

Nevertheless I hope we give Northampton a hiding on Tuesday evening.

If we are going anywhere GM has to get his head round a few things. He seems to think other managers are thick.....they aren't.

We don't need three centre backs here. Hasselbaink has been parking the bus in away matches.

Let's have a good look at Lloyd too please.

Peterborough Telegraph
Cobblers will be a lot tougher to beat this time around.
McCann also expects a reaction from his players following the second-half shambles that led to a 4-1 home defeat at the hands of Oxford on Saturday (September 30). That result could persuade McCann to play field a stronger team than he originally planned. The likes of Danny Lloyd and Alex Penny are however in contention for a start.
Ricky Miller is expected to start alongside either top scorer Jack Marriott or teenager Idris Kanu. Centre-back Alex Penny is another possible starter. Jermaine Anderson is likely to get another opportunity in central midfield after starting his first match for almost 13 months against Oxford.
