Charlie Lee celebrates scoring the winner against Northampton Town in 2009

There have been plenty of memorable moments against local rivals Northampton Town down the years!

Peterborough United welcome Northampton Town to the Weston Homes Stadium in Sky Bet League One action on Tuesday evening (7.45pm)  and there have been plenty of memorable contests against the Cobblers down the years.

Posh have a pretty good recent record too, apart from the clash at Sixfields earlier in the campaign when the Shoe Army scored a bit of a fluke goal in the dying moments. That win was actually the first victory the Cobblers have registered against Posh in 11 games.

The last time the two sides met in PE2 was in April 2021 and was played behind closed doors due to the pandemic. 

Sammie Szmodics gave Darren Ferguson's men the lead on that day only for Sam Hoskins to level the scores from the spot two minutes before the break.

Posh re-took the lead through Szmodics against moments after the re-start with Jonson Clarke-Harris securing all three points midway through the half.

Back in 2018, goals from Jack Baldwin and Jack Marriott secured a 2-0 victory in front of just over 8,600 fans. 

In 2016, it was another comfortable afternoon as Posh ran out 3-0 winners thanks to Shaq Coulthirst, Ryan Tafazolli and Tom Nichols.

As you delve through the history books, you have to go back seven years for the meeting before that one in 2016 and who could forget that particular encounter?

Posh were reduced to 10-men after Gabriel Zakuani was dismissed inside the opening 10 minutes, but Charlie Lee popped up with a close-range finish from a set-piece to secure a narrow 1-0 win. 

The last win for the Cobblers at the Weston Homes Stadium came in 2006 when Scott McGleish bagged the winner in the first half.

Tuesday night's clash will be the 75th meeting between the two sides with Posh winning 34 of them. Tickets remain on sale for the game at and via the Weston Homes Stadium Ticket Office.

We are pleased to be able to let supporters know that our Early Bird pricing has been extended from midnight tonight (Sunday) through until kick-off.

The GH Display Stand is open for the fixture for home supporters only. Northampton Town have sold out their allocation for the fixture and will be housed in the Main Stand.
