Posh v Cambridge United | Match Preview

A look ahead to Tuesday evening’s fixture with Cambridge United.

12 November 2019

Posh look to complete Leasing.com Trophy group stage with three wins from three.

Peterborough United conclude the group stage of the Leasing.com Trophy against local rivals Cambridge United at the Weston Homes Stadium (7.30pm) on Tuesday evening looking to make it three wins from three in the competition.

So far, Darren Ferguson’s men have beaten Northampton Town and Arsenal under 21s without conceding a goal. Cambridge are already out of the competition and Posh are already through with the second round draw taking place at 2pm on Saturday afternoon.

TEAM NEWS

Young striker Ricky-Jade Jones will be handed his first start against the Us as Posh look set to field a similar squad to the one that took the field against the Gunners. Idris Kanu, Siriki Dembele and Harrison Burrows are expected to start.

With Cambridge already out of the competition, Us boss Colin Calderwood is expected to shuffle his pack for the clash at the Weston Homes Stadium. They have several injury worries with Samir Carruthers among those on the sidelines.

FROM THE GAFFER

“It is very rare that you have a competitive fixture where there is nothing riding on it for both sides, but we want to end the group stage with a win to make it three victories from three and at the end of the day, it is a local derby and the supporters will want us to win the match. I want the players to go out there and express themselves because it is a good opportunity for those not in the side to stake a claim to get in it because we have a few players with knocks and obviously Ivan Toney is suspended for the Burton game,” Darren Ferguson said.

Darren Ferguson pleased with young side after 2-1 victory over U’s.

In what could hardly be considered the fiercest local derby of all time, a youthful Posh made it three wins from three in the Leasing.com Trophy group stage following a 2-1 victory over Cambridge United at the Weston Homes Stadium, in front of a crowd of close to 3,500.

The earliest chance of the game fell to Harvey Knibbs, after Rhys Bennett, Posh’s skipper for the night, gave the ball away. Knibbs didn’t take advantage of this, dragging his shot wide.

Posh’s first chance would fall to Joe Ward on nine minutes, after Dembele was felled on the edge of the area, and they’d take it. WARD firing the free kick into the top left corner. His second of the competition.

Posh would then have a second goal disallowed on the 12th minute mark. Burrows firing on the post, with Rhys Bennett firing in the rebound, but the linesman’s flag was up.

Andrew Dallas, who’s on loan at the U’s from Rangers, would then have a chance to level up the scores, but he put his shot wide of the mark. Idris Kanu had the chance to double the lead on 17 minutes, heading a Joe Ward cross clear over the bar.

Posh would get a second on the half hour mark. Ricky-Jade JONES deftly placing the ball into the bottom left corner, after the ball broke to him following some clever play by Serhat Tasdemir. It is Jones’ first senior goal for the club.

Dallas would have his second chance of the game and the last of the first half on 38 minutes, floating a shot wide after some neat work from himself to retain the ball.

The first chance of the second half came to Knibbs, glancing a header wide on 47 minutes. A minute later, Idris Kanu had a shot saved by Burton, following some industrial work by Jones. The first yellow card arrived in the 76th minute when Jordan Norville-Williams lunged in on Rhys Bennett.

On the 78-minute mark, Harvey KNIBBS slid the ball into a near open net following some miscommunication at the back from the Posh.

He had the chance to draw things level less than a minute later, but Chapman was equal to his effort. This would prove to be Cambridge’s best opportunity to equalise.

Posh would then get their first and only yellow of the affair, substitute Archie Jones booked on 82 minutes for a feisty challenge.

A teasing ball from Norville-Williams was knocked over the bar by Posh sub Copping on 86 minutes. The third booking came after Sam Smith pushed over Idris Kanu, to halt a late Posh counter attack.

A goalmouth scramble in injury time was the Posh’s best chance of the second half. A nice ball from Burrows narrowly avoiding the onrushing Posh attackers. George Marris then stung the palms’ of Chapman from range following a clever dummy. The final chance of the game belonged to Norville-Williams, his free kick not troubling Chapman in the Posh goal.

Posh: Chapman, Dembele, Bennett, Blake-Tracy, Tasdemir (Sub Jones, 73), Ward (Sub Mensah, 46), Kanu, Cartwright (Sub Copping, 46), Barker, Burrows, Jones. Subs: O’Malley, Harris, Rolt, Ruzvidzo.
