Peterborough United v Town

Huddersfield Town story posted by Peter MacGibbon on 01/04/2005
We head off to Peterborough in good spirits! Three wins on the bounce and clean sheets in the last two games. Jacko has the problem of whether to reinstate Nathan Clarke in the side,or not, after his suspension with brother Tom and Dave Mirfin performing so brilliantly against the Owls.Peterborough United v Town

We came out of the last match with no new injuries, just Carss and Yates on the injured list. New signing Danny Adams hasn?t even had a chance to get on the field yet.

The Posh had a good goalless draw against the Bees earlier in the week but really have their backs to the wall. Not only do they look doomed to relegation but Barry Fry, who has managed them for 9 years and owned them since 2003, would call it a day if a good offer was made. He has already realised that being Chairman is now a full time job and is looking for a committed manager to take charge of the playing side. Assistant Manager Jimmy Quinn is interested.

Like us, Peterborough are looking to youth for their survival; they had six teenagers in their squad against the Bees although it was Fola Onibuje, coming on as a substitute, who looked most likely to break the impasse.

Posh are injury stricken, currently nine players under treatment. Chris Plummer (calf), Peter Kennedy (knee), Richard Logan (hamstring), Adam Newton (ankle) and Simon Rea (knee) are all expected to miss the clash with us. Jamie Day and Craig Ireland are definitely out and it will be a race against time for David Farrell.

Posh have 5 points from their last eight games compared with our 15. Interestingly, probably because of our poor away record, the bookies have us at even -stevens, 6/4 either side!

We should be capable of winning this match but Peterborough have nothing to lose and will surely make a hard fight of it.
