Brothers set to face each other at Vale Park.Saturday will be a special day for the Alnwick family. Peterborough United goalkeeper Ben will come up against his younger brother Jak as Posh travel to Vale Park to face Port Vale in Sky Bet League One action.
It will be the first time the two brothers have faced each other in a competitive fixture and it is one that Ben is looking forward to.
'I’m trying not to think about it,' Ben said. 'I’m trying not to get too wrapped up in it, but it’s difficult. It’s obviously a good talking point ahead of the game.
'Ideally Jak will have a really good game, but we will win 1-0! I want to win this match as much as every other game I play, but I still want Jak to do well. We are very close. We discuss our matches and our own performances all the time.
'Before every match we send each other best wishes and we will mean it this Saturday. It’s hard to know how we will feel on the day because we’ve never come up against each other before.
'The closest we came was when Jak was close to signing on loan for a League One club just before we were due to play them last season, but it never happened. I’m pleased for my dad this Saturday though. Normally he alternates watching us play, but for once he can watch us both!'
