Such a frustrating season for us in many ways. If we'd only had average away form , we'd be pushing for the automatics. We've only lost once at home and rarely look like doing so.

Peterborough is a difficult one. We are the patron saints of giving teams on a bad run a pick me up and so you tend to expect more of the same. I'm glad , however, that Westley is struggling.

We ALWAYS struggle when we go to Peterborough, it's one of those places (like Swindon) where we seem to never turn up. I've never been, but is it a tight pitch? We always seem to struggle on tight pitches. We also tend to go to places where we have historically done poorly and appear frightened and beaten before a ball has been kicked.

I think Peterborough are safe from relegation and in the same vein they are unlikely to trouble the playoffs, so they've not really got a lot to play for, except for the fact that the manager will not want to get sacked by continuing this poor run. They've blatantly got some talented players but selling their leading scorer in January appears to have hit hard.

We'll probably just replace Kennedy with Byron Moore after an impressive cameo as a sub on Saturday. We never look like scoring loads but don't concede a lot either. Generally, if Peterborough score first we will lose, otherwise it is likely to be a low scoring affair.

I'm going to go for an optimistic 1-1.

If we have any aspirations of the playoffs we need to win this with the form they are on but we have as bad a form at London Road as Posh have at Vale Park.

Hopefully we can be positive now over the 50 point mark and really go for it with nothing to lose. No point being negative away anymore so lets go and get the win! Would like to win this after somehow failing to win against these at VP with 2 penalty misses including one that hit the bar, bounced down off his back and somehow went wide!

I might be ending my self imposed ban on away games this weekend, not really sure why. I'll keep my expectations low and just hope that we can at least manage a couple of shots on goal, but that might be to much to ask.

Oh my god SERNWA is back, you can continue your obsession with us next season when we play you. As for this weekend this strikes me a bit like Sheff Utd game, beaten before we set foot on the pitch. Myself i don,t think we have any real chance of play-offs due to the cack away form. Posh Shrews Chesterfield Gills Scunny. An optimist could see one win out of those 5 games. Really we got be looking at 8 or 9 points from the 5 games as well as carrying on the great home form. Unlikely. Posh in terrible run of form but got good point at Wigan last weekend, in false position as i think they are top 8 material, sorry to say it but 3-1 Posh. Can,t ever recall us winning here in my time.

I recall Bridge-Wilkinson getting an injury time winner there around 2003 but had some real shitters there! 4-0 when they were bottom of the league, 3-0 on a cold Tuesdsy night.

No, the likelihood is that we're not going up, nobody thinks or expects us to do so. However, if we go on a little run, it is nice to enjoy the ride, is it not?

As for the game, can't see us winning at all, maybe get a point. Like others have said, if we want to be pushing up the league we need to go to Peterborough and win. If we do win, fair play and the good form continues.

You might not believe that but likes of valefan16 will.

You turned up to the party late, we'd been celebrating for a week before that last match. In the last game our Chairman turned up dressed as a Smurf ffs. :2thumb:

Do you remember the season after we got promoted, you kept finding your way back to our threads and insisted that our boxing day match wasn't a big game for your lot at the time, and it wasn't a sell out in the home end. You did your usual disappearing act when I provided the link to the old match thread, which you started with the words "huge match this, home end sold out". Fucking hilarious that was.

Nice to see you're still obsessing about us Stevie.

Fair play to Rotherham. Similar sized club to ourselves and we would love a crack at the Championship for a few seasons.

I didn't realise Leeds wore red and white?

I don't think we'll make the play offs personally but want us to give it a go at least. If not I look forward to another win against Rovrum in League One next season.

Why are you not on the championship forum ? Instead of acting like a fucking pipe on this one ?

No idea, warming up for next season possibly, haven't heard from him for 2 years on here populating the Vale threads.
