23 October 2012
Huddersfield travel to London Road looking for another 3 point haul away from the John Smiths Stadium.
The Terriers have been impressive on their travels so far this season, and many Town fans are licking their lips at the prospect of gaining some revenge over Peterborough for 'That' loss back in Manchester.
Peterborough are struggling at the wrong end of the table this season, and with Town in red-hot form we could be in for a good game.
"Our job off the field as technical staff is ensure our lads are focussed on Tuesday night. We can`t just go out there, put the shirts on and expect to win - from experience we all know that doesn`t happen. This Championship can bite you on the backside again and again, so we`ll make sure the team is ready and focussed with the aim of reproducing the standards of Tuesday night.
"They have some good players and although they are at the bottom of the table, things can change quickly. They showed their ability by winning at Hull a few weeks ago and they followed that up with a win at Barnsley. They`ve shown they can do it and we have to be on our guard and ready. We`ll pay the proper respect to them, but hopefully we`ll have too much in our armoury."
Tommy Rowe is rated 50/50 and will face a late fitness test.
Peter Grant & Dave Hibbert are absent.
Gabs Zakuani is still left warming the bench
The skilful midfielder will be Posh's main threat, out of contract in the summer, must be time for a move to a bigger side!
Joel Lynch and Adam Hammill will both probably have to settle with a place on the bench after recovering from injuries.
The on-loan Norwich striker is instrumental for Town, especially away from home.
• Peterborough and Huddersfield are tied at seven wins a piece after 18 league meetings.
• Posh are looking for a third consecutive home league win over the Terriers, having scored four goals in each of the last two. They last lost at home to the West Yorkshire outfit in April 2005 in League One.
• They last locked horns in the League One play-off final in May 2011 at Old Trafford, when Posh ran away with a 3-0 triumph.
• Peterborough are one point adrift at the foot of the table, having dropped 27 of 33 points, and are in danger of a 10th defeat of the season and third in succession.
• They are the only club without a draw in the Championship, and without a home point, with just three goals scored in their five outings at London Road.
The Terriers boast the best away record, and the strongest first-half return in the Championship.
Former premiership referee STUART ATTWELL takes charge of this match, remember his phantom goals! His Assistants are Chris Knowles and Richard Kendall. The fourth official is Stephen Ross.
