Not sure I can bear the tension, if we lose this one I’ll be a grumpy git until at least the following Saturday.
Thought we were unlucky to come away with nothing from their place. Soft penalty and the better team lost.

I'm with you....not sure how I'm going to survive as it was pretty tense today...they are not that good despite the name/history but they do have a very good manager who has got them really rocking...I think we might just blitz them and go 2-0 up early and will be hanging on desperately for a 2-1 win....

We have to seek to reproduce the spirit of the 2-0 win over Leicester in 2009.

Discipline is likely to be critical: we had Thompson sent off at Lincoln, and Hamilton against Hull, and we can’t continue to compete with our closest rivals when we’re a man down. There may be some residual acrimony from the 3-0 win over Sunderland last season, so it’s important to avoid reckless tackles leading to bookings -– especially in the early stages, when the referee may be seeking to establish firm control. Someone needs to have a stern pre-match word in Thompson’s ear. Equally, Dembele should start; he should be on the pitch when a booking or a penalty is there to be won. (Burrows has shown himself to be an effective substitute against Wigan and Burton.)
Contrary to expectations, both J-CH and Wyke might be marked off the score sheet. We might have to look to Ward, Taylor, Reed or a defender for a goal.

We possess a genuine free-kick threat in JC-H and Ward, while it’s unlikely that Sunderland have forgotten Reed thumping a free kick against their bar earlier this season (one more reason to start Reed over Brown).

It’s not a must-win game, but it is a mustn’t-lose one. Sunderland and Hull face each other later in the season. Apart from the actual points dropped, home defeats to both Hull and Sunderland would be heavy psychological baggage to lug around for the remainder of the season.
The head says 1-1.
The heart says 2-1: a JC-H penalty and a bullet header by Beevers from a corner. (He’s been biding his time.)

There is no such thing as easy or difficult games at this stage of the season. Just ask Chelsea after their drubbing against WBA!

Absolutely. I was thinking about the game this morning and in my usual pessimistic fashion, I couldn’t envision a win for Posh, we always seem to lose the big games........but then I remembered the Leicester game and it gave me hope.....but still think we’ll have a man sent off and Sunderland will win through another dodgy penalty. :(

Posh 7 Accrington 0 seemed like an easy game to me.

Ref needs to get a grip right from the off. Suspect that Sunderland will come with a gameplan to stop us playing anyway they can. Lots of niggles and unnecessary fouls coming up.
