Edwards Starts Against Old Club Peterborough
Saturday, 17th Aug 2019 14:28
Gwion Edwards makes his first League One start of the season against his old club Peterborough with the Blues otherwise unchanged from last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Sunderland.
Edwards, who was a starter in the much-changed line-up for the Carabao Cup defeat at Luton on Tuesday having returned from his groin injury, comes in for Luke Garbutt, who is out for a month with a knee problem, on the left of midfield.
Prospective new right-back Kane Vincent-Young travelled with the Town squad with his £500,000 move from Colchester agreed subject to his medical.
Town will be looking for their first win away against Peterborough since 1972 - a 2-0 FA Cup success - and their first ever victory at London Road in the league.
For Posh, who have lost all three of their games this season, Marcus Maddison and Niall Mason return to their starting line-up after missing their 1-0 Carabao Cup defeat to Oxford in midweek.
Peterborough: Pym, Beevers (c), Kent, Eisa, Knight, Maddison, Reed, Toney, Blake-Tracy, Boyd, Mason. Subs: O’Malley, Butler, Dembele, Tasdemir, Ward, Kanu, Burrows.
Town: Holy, Donacien, Chambers (c), Woolfenden, Kenlock, Skuse, Downes, Rowe, Edwards, Jackson, Norwood. Subs: Norris, Wilson, Judge, Roberts, Dozzell, El Mizouni, Huws. Referee: Martin Coy (Durham).

Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
Cycle of Hurt by Steve_M
It's hard not to see a club that has got nearly every big decision wrong and come out on the wrong side of almost every promotion or relegation fight over 19 years as being in anything other than terminal decline. The very obvious exception to that pattern of failure was the appointment of Mick McCarthy and his first few years here.
Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
