Woking v Posh | Match Preview

A look ahead to Sunday's cup-tie.

Grant McCann's men are looking forward to Sunday's trip to face National League side Woking.

Peterborough United travel to the Kingfield Stadium on Sunday to face National League side Woking in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup (2pm) in a tie that was moved to be part of the BBC’s coverage of the competition.

The fixture will be featured on the BBC with a reporter pitch-side at the stadium and highlights interspersed into the show. Woking progressed into the second round after knocking out Sky Bet League One side Bury at Gigg Lane while Posh defeated Tranmere Rovers in a televised replay at Prenton Park.

TEAM NEWS

Manager Grant McCann has confirmed that he has no fresh injury worries to contend with ahead of the tie with just defender Liam Shephard and Junior Morias on the sidelines. Shephard is two weeks away from a return while Morias is another five weeks away from a return after a thigh injury.

Woking boss Anthony Limbrick has confirmed Nathan Baxter will return to the starting XI against Posh on Sunday after overcoming an injury recently. Sam Mason has stepped in for the last few games, but at 17 lacks big game experience on a regular basis.

MCCANN QUOTES

“Woking are a good side, their manager likes them to get the ball down and play and they have three or four players that can really hurt you in offensive areas. I watched them against Bury and they thoroughly deserved to win the game. It will be a tough test for us but we are looking forward to it,” McCann said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

"Without a doubt, they will be the best team we have faced this year and they will be expecting to win and win well," said manager Anthony Limbrick. “They beat Tranmere well in our league, but our fans will play a part with their support at home. It's ours, the players' jobs, to get the fans supporting us, so we have to do something in the game to get them onside.”

National League side earn a replay at the ABAX Stadium after late goal secures 1-1 draw.

Peterborough United face an Emirates FA Cup replay after being held to a 1-1 draw at the Kingfield Stadium as National League side Woking produced a fine display and salvaged a replay at the ABAX Stadium thanks to a late goal from Joe Ward.

After a quiet start, it was the hosts who had the best opportunity on 14 minutes as Bond was penalised for collecting a back-pass from Alex Penny. Joey Jones sliced the resulting free-kick inside the box well wide of the target.

The deadlock was broken on 24 minutes as a wonderful delivery from Marcus Maddison was flicked goalwards by Marriott, keeper Baxter could only parry and TAFAZOLLI was in the right place at the right time to fire home the rebound.

Charles-Cook fired wide from distance for the hosts before a hefty aerial challenge from Tafazolli and Effiong had the crowd wincing. Baxter did well to gather at the second attempt from a curling Maddison effort from long-range on 32 minutes.

Tafazolli headed a Maddison free-kick over the bar moments later after Edwards had been felled by Isaac. Woking were awarded a spot-kick on 40 minutes as Penny was penalised for a tugging back the powerful Effiong, however goalkeeper Jonathan Bond produced a fine stop diving to his left to push the effort around the post.

Marriott was cautioned for a foul moments later as the hosts, ushered on by their vocal young manager, tried to get themselves level before the break. Marriott played in Edwards on the stroke of half-time, but the winger saw his left-foot shot go wide of the far post.

Maddison tried an audacious effort from inside his own half on 50 minutes after catching the keeper off his line, but it drifted wide. Hughes fired wide from distance before Woking made their first change with Young introduced in place of Ramsay.

Ferdinand headed a corner kick over the bar at the near post on 66 minutes. Maddison volleyed wide from long-range moments later as Posh tried to get the cushion of a second goal. Bond did well to gather a curling Ward effort on 79 minutes.

Maddison saw a right-footed cross-shot clawed to safety by Baxter with Forrester unable to force home the rebound. The hosts levelled the scores on 84 minutes as Joe WARD fired into the back of the net as Posh struggled to clear a cross into the box.

Bond produced an unbelievable stop from point blank range to deny Ferdinand as the game moved towards stoppage time. Three minutes of stoppage time was indicated by the fourth official as Wynter flashed a shot wide.

Ward then struck the crossbar with an over-hit cross as Posh clung on for a replay on the 12th December at the ABAX Stadium.
