Posh v Dover | Match Preview

Posh welcome Dover Athletic to the Weston Homes Stadium on Sunday.

29 November 2019

It is Emirates FA Cup second round action on Sunday with Dover Athletic visiting the Weston Homes Stadium.

Peterborough United welcome National League side Dover Athletic to the Weston Homes Stadium on Sunday afternoon (2pm) for the second round of the Emirates FA Cup with the winner set to go into the third round draw, which takes place on Monday evening.

Andy Hessenthaler’s men knocked out fellow League One side Southend United in the first round of the competition thanks to a 1-0 victory while Posh needed a replay to see off Stevenage with a 2-0 success at the Weston Homes Stadium after a 1-1 draw at the Lamex Stadium in an eventful fixture, which saw a floodlight failure and a superb equaliser from Marcus Maddison.

The tie with Dover will form part of the BBC show on Sunday that features live updates and ‘goals as they go in’. Dover were beaten 4-3 by Maidenhead in their last National League fixture while Posh beat Burton Albion 1-0 thanks to a superb strike from Joe Ward.

TEAM NEWS

Posh welcome back striker Ivan Toney from suspension after he sat out the 1-0 win over Burton after reaching five yellow cards. Midfielders Josh Knight and George Boyd are both injured, but there are no other injury worries to contend with for boss Darren Ferguson.

Dover Defender Will De Havilland, fit again after an ankle problem, could be pushing for a start while midfielder Kurtis Cumberbatch may also be in line for a recall. Skipper Kevin Lokko this week trained for the first time since picking up an ankle injury, although the game may come too early for the defender.

Striker Ruel Sotiriou, who scored the winning goal against Southend in the previous round, has been recalled by parent club Leyton Orient after completing his one-month loan deal.

FROM THE GAFFER

“Dover have an excellent away record and will be a tricky opponent. They will come with nothing to lose, almost like a free hit and we will have to be at our best. The fact they beat Southend in the first round is a great example of why they should not be underestimated and I will make sure they are not,” Darren Ferguson said.

FROM THE OPPOSITION

“To get through the last round against Southend was a tremendous effort by the players, but we’re now playing a League 1 team who are flying so we’re very much the underdogs. We watched their replay last week (the 2-0 win over Stevenage) and they’re a very good footballing side who move the ball quickly.

“We know what to expect, but all the pressure is on them. No one expects us to get a result. We’ll have to play to our maximum and hope they have an off day but what you don’t want is players coming off knowing they could have given a bit more.

“I don’t think they will because they are all looking forward to it. We’re all excited by the chance to get into the third round,” Dover boss Andy Hessenthaler said.

Ivan Toney and Mo Eisa both netted as Posh recorded a 3-0 win over Dover Athletic in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Peterborough United added another strike to their stunning goal of the season competition as Ivan Toney netted an outrageous volley from 40-yards with goals from Mo Eisa and Frankie Kent securing a 3-0 victory over Dover Athletic on a day where numerous chances in front of goal were squandered.

Posh opened the scoring on seven minutes and it was yet another contender for goal of the season, this time from Ivan TONEY who thundered home a first time volley from long-range over a stranded Lee Worgan for his 13th goal of the season. It was an incredible effort and left the Dover goalkeeper in complete shock.

Toney nearly doubled the lead with another volley on 21 minutes after a lightening break which began with a throw out from Pym and ended with a cross into the box from Eisa following good work from Ward.

Reed saw a volley of his own held by keeper Worgan on 29 minutes after good persistence down the right from Ward. Beevers was booked by referee Mr Huxtable for a push on Modeste on 34 minutes, a very soft caution given the late challenges on Maddison throughout the first period. Taylor fired the resulting free-kick over the crossbar.

Cumberbatch was cautioned for a foul on Maddison on 37 minutes after a clever flick around the corner from the Posh winger. Eisa squandered a golden chance to double the lead moments later after Blake-Tracy beat the offside trap and squared the ball into his path, but he sliced wide of the target from close-range.

Rigg headed wide at the near post from a Taylor free-kick as the first half entered the final five minutes. Maddison skied an effort from 25-yards after doing well to advance into a shooting position less than 60 seconds later and the next move, he had another chance after a good threaded pass from Toney, but again, his shot went over the bar on his left-foot.

Eisa had a chance just after the break to make it 2-0 after beating the offside trap, but his curler was well kept out by Worgan with the ball just eluding Toney in the six-yard box. Toney couldn’t quite stretch high enough to divert a hanging Butler cross on target on 54 minutes as the chances continued to be created without a second goal arriving.

Keeper Worgan produced a fine stop to keep out Eisa after Toney burst clear on the left hand side, the keeper diving to his right to somehow divert the low shot around the post. Pym was called upon for his first save of the tie on the hour mark as he kept out a downward Havilland header from a set-piece.

Posh were dealt an injury blow on 73 minutes with former Kings Lynn man Blake-Tracy being carried off after a challenge on the far side. Pym did well to hold a low effort from Taylor on 75 minutes as Posh reorganised their defence.

Munns clipped the outside of the post with a curling effort on 76 minutes as Dover were a whisker away from levelling the tie. Posh doubled the lead on 79 minutes as a corner from Marcus Maddison was toe-poked home at the near post by Frankie KENT via the inside of the post.

Posh made it 3-0 on 84 minutes as substitute Serhat Tasdemir sprung the offside trap and squared for EISA who tapped home for his 13th goal of the campaign. Woodyard and Mason were both cautioned in the final 10 minutes by referee Brett Huxtable who suddenly got a penchant for reaching for the cards.

Eisa curled over deep into stoppage time and then Tasdemir side-footed wide before the referee brought an end to proceedings. The third round draw takes place on Monday evening from 7pm on BBC Two.
