Peterborough (A) Match Preview

After more misery at the Madejski Stadium, the Royals will be hoping things are better on the road this weekend when we travel to Peterborough.

Vital Quotes: Brendan Rodgers

I like to keep it fresh and have one or two changes. To be honest it`s just adapting and looking at where we`re at I think.

Peterborough Team News:

Peterborough will make a late decision on the fitness of midfielder Chris Whelpdale after he limped off in the midweek draw with Leicester with a groin injury.

Player to watch: George Boyd

Winger Boyd has built a good reputation in the lower leagues as a scorer and provider of some important goals and has impressed so far stepping up into the Championship, including a goal midweek against Leicester.

Reading Team News:

The Royals will again be without Shane Long and Jobi McAnuff, as well as defender Chris Armstrong. Ivar Ingimarsson was on the bench on Wednesday night and will again be involved and Brynjar Gunnarsson should be fit after missing the midweek defeat against Cardiff.

Player to watch: Shaun Cummings

Has made a decent enough start to his Royals career but will face his toughest test yet against George Boyd. We have seen Cummings can go forward well but will need to be on top of his game defensively on Saturday.

Last Meeting

Their hasn't been a meeting of the Royals and the Posh for over 7 years, with a 2-2 draw at the end of the 2001/2002 season the last time we faced each other. A late Leon McKenzie goal denied the Royals promotion that afternoon after two goals from Nicky Forster had cancelled out Matt Gill's long range opener.
The last time we met at London Road, Darius Henderson scored two very late goals to give us a 2-1 win in a fantastic game.

Next Fixture:

Saturday 26th September 2009, Watford (H)
