Match Preview | Cambridge United v Posh

A look ahead to the Checkatrade Trophy tie.

6 November 2017

Peterborough United travel to Cambridge United on Tuesday evening in the final group game of the Checkatrade Trophy (7.45pm)

Grant McCann’s men can secure their passage into the knockout stages of the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night in the simplest terms, by coming away from Cambs Glass Stadium with a victory, however other permutations can also ensure that Posh reach the latter stages of the competition.

Of course, more importantly for the supporters, local pride is at stake. The two sides have not met in competitive action since December 2001 when the two sides played out a goalless draw at the Abbey Stadium.

TEAM NEWS

Manager Grant McCann is only without the services of striker Junior Morias, who remains side-lined with a thigh injury. The Posh boss confirmed that he won’t risk anyone who is not fully fit for the contest.

Cambridge have made a whole host of changes for previous games in this competition and were in action on Sunday against Sutton United in the Emirates FA Cup so it is likely they will make a number of personnel changes to their starting XI.

MCCANN QUOTES

“It is the first time that we have played Cambridge in a competitive fixture for about 15 years and it is a game that we are looking forward too. I have been informed that we have sold around 1,000 tickets for the game and that is fantastic support. We are going there to try and win the game. That is our aim, to try and progress in this competition.”

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“This is a derby and that is exactly how we will be treating it. It’s first game between Cambridge and Peterborough in over 16 years, so this is bigger than the Checkatrade Trophy. The Derby is a game which means so much too so many people. It will be a great evening to be involved in and we're really looking forward to it.”

TICKET NEWS

The game is all-ticket and tickets will be on sale until noon on match day at the ABAX Stadium Box Office, online at www.theposhtickets.com and via the Ticketmaster hotline 0844 847 1934 (calls cost 7ppm plus your network access fee).

Jack Marriott makes it 2-0 against Cambridge

Peterborough United recorded a local derby success at the Cambs Glass Stadium following comfortable success.

Peterborough United made it safely into the latter stages of the Checkatrade Trophy with a comfortable away success at local rivals Cambridge United with Steven Taylor and Jack Marriott netting in front of over 1,100 Posh fans behind the goal.

Ryan Tafazolli fired wide on the turn inside the opening few minutes after Carroll somehow got away, in terms of a booking, with a crunching tackle on Da Silva Lopes. Ikpeazu sent an acrobatic volley straight into the arms of O’Malley on 12 minutes after good work initially from former Posh youngster Jevani Brown.

Ikpeazu dragged a shot across goal on 22 minutes and Lewis then squandered a fine chance as the ball rolled into a dangerous area, firing wide of the far post. Lloyd fired wide at the other end after being found in the left channel by a clever Edwards pass.

Lloyd fired a free-kick into the wall after Maddison was felled 25-yards from goal. Maddison then saw a right-foot shot well gathered by goalkeeper Mitov. Top scorer Marriott forced Mitov into a fine save moments later, his shot on the turn parried clear, Grant in an offside position for rebound.

O’Malley did well to tip over a fierce drive from Lewis on 35 minutes after he was afforded time and space around 30-yards from goal. Marriott saw a curler patted down by Mitov who then gathered at the second attempt as Da Silva Lopes led a quick Posh counter attack.

O’Malley produced a fine stop diving to his left to divert a shot around the post after Taylor squeezed a shot through the crowd. Marriott fired over at the other end when he perhaps should have played in Lloyd on his left.

The deadlock was broken on 50 minutes and it was a wonderful moment in front of the Posh faithful for Steven TAYLOR who was in the right place to stab home from close-range after Marriott had fired a low cross into the danger zone following a parry from keeper Mitov to deny Doughty.

Lewis was cautioned for a foul by referee Mr Ward on 54 minutes. Cambridge made a double change on the hour with Ibehre and Dunk introduced. Edwards was cautioned for a foul with Elito firing the free-kick into the wall.

O’Malley produced a fine save from close-range to deny a powerful Ikpeazu header on 68 minutes as the home side continued to press. Grant McCann made a change on 69 minutes with Andrew Hughes replacing Da Silva Lopes.

Legge came close to scoring an own goal at the near post on 71 minutes after a Hughes cross, somehow sliced wide of the near post. Anthony Grant fired wide on 76 minutes from just inside the box.

The lead was doubled on 81 minutes, Edwards to Grant and he picked out MARRIOTT who, with the aid of a slight deflection, rifled home his 12th of the season. Elito was denied by a comfortable O’Malley stop in four minutes of added time.

Cambridge: Mitov, Halliday, Carroll, Taylor, Legge, Ikpeazu, O’Neil, Maris (sub Dunk 60min), Brown (sub Ibehre 60min), Elito, Lewis. Unused subs: Iron, Davies, Foy, Howkins, Worman.

Posh: O’Malley, Tafazolli, Baldwin, Edwards (sub Kanu 82min), Lloyd, Maddison (sub Anderson 82min), Marriott, Da Silva Lopes (sub Hughes 69min), Doughty, Taylor, Grant. Unused subs: Bond, Shephard, Forrester, Chettle.

Half-time: Cambridge United 0-0 Peterborough United
Full-time: Cambridge United 0-2 Peterborough United
Attendance: 3,138 (1,123 Posh fans)
