Good grief. Posh players will be tired out after playing Shrewsbury this afternoon - hardly time to get changed and travel down to Bristol in time for the 7pm kickoff.

I reckon that BristlePosh will be looking forward to it.
Only my opinion, as always.

No, would have been if crowds were allowed back in, wonder how many of our rejects will be in their squad Baldwin, Little, Oztumer?

Apols all round. I thought Crewe was the next away match as that was the match that had been given for the "free" away ifollow ticket. :oops: :oops: :oops:

I’m a bit worried about this one and I think we need a few changes to freshen things up. JCH wasn’t involved much on Saturday (apart from scoring the penalty) and whilst I like what Brown brings to the team, he’s not the greatest when it comes to tracking back and tackling. If I were Fergie, I’d give Eisa and Reed a run out instead.
I saw in another thread that Bristol Posh was suggesting a return to a back 3. I think that’s what we did on Saturday and I’m not so sure it works well. It seems to encourage a lot of aimless passing between the centre backs, with a back 4 they’re more inclined to get it forward quicker.
Hope we can get a point or 3 but won’t be the end of the world if we lose.

Tough game this one. They have recruited well and are a solid League 1 team. I think Szmodics will show up big this evening and Posh will squeak a 1-2 win win Sammie getting both goals....the vengeance tour is starting to rock and roll :clap:

Certainly was a great goal. A few more to come I reckon.

Need to keep it tight for the first 10-15 minutes or so and hit on the break.....

Really enjoyed that. End to end game with plenty of chances for Posh but 2 absolute crackers to win it.
Time to give some other players a run out on Saturday and get the key players fresh for theCrewe game.
Fergie is our king!

Always love it when we stick one up the Bristol lot, whichever side of town they are. Two absolutely stunning goals, and a fortnight off for our star players.

An excellent game with Posh looking unlikely ever to concede. Two very good goals with JHC and Dembele much quieter. Szmodics only needs to score one goal to join in the fun. He could easily have had 3-4 goals tonight. Enjoyable game to watch. :clap2:
