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).

Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
