Match Preview

Johnson poised to shuffle pack Peterborough manager Gary Johnson is set to make changes to his side for the visit of big-spending Huddersfield. Johnson labelled his side "pathetic" after last weekend`s 5-1 mauling at Bournemouth and will wield the axe. Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Seth Nana Ofori-Twumasi were hauled off at half-time last weekend and look likely to miss out, with replacements Charlie Lee and Tommy Rowe looking to start. Striker Aaron Mclean lasted the 90 minutes after overcoming an ankle injury but has revealed he is still in pain so may miss out, with summer signings Dave Hibbert and Lee Tomlin available to fill in. Defender Gabriel Zakuani has a groin injury while midfielder Lee Frecklington (knee) and winger Chris Whelpdale (thigh) are also still not ready for the first team. Huddersfield will be without suspended defender Gary Naysmith. Naysmith was sent off for a second bookable offence during the closing stages of the goalless home draw with Tranmere last weekend. Manager Lee Clark, who has named the same starting XI for the first three games this season, including the Carling Cup success at Carlisle, must choose between Graham Carey, on loan from Celtic, or Liam Ridehalgh to step in for Naysmith. Clark has no other injury or suspension problems but does have other options with striker Lee Novak and midfielder Damien Johnson pushing for places in the starting line-up. Defenders Nathan and Tom Clarke remain sidelined with long-term knee injuries but the former has had a protective brace removed and hopes to return to full training in five to six weeks.

Match Report

Thriller at London Road Two teams tipped to challenge for League One honours served up a footballing feast at London Road as Peterborough came from behind to win 4-2. The Posh had looked to be out of it when they slipped into a two-goal deficit, but produced some stunning football to hit four goals and leave Town stunned. Not many people would have bet on that happening during an opening period in which the visitors opened up a two-goal cushion and saw Anthony Pilkington smash against the crossbar. Full-debutant Graham Carey delivered a corner from which Jordan Rhodes headed the opener after 22 minutes - and the player borrowed from Celtic soon went from provider to goalscorer. Carey doubled the lead with a smashing 33rd minute free-kick but their stranglehold was broken in first-half stoppage time. Keeper Alex Smithies allowed a George Boyd shot to slip through his grasp as Town conceded for the first time all season - and their usually tight defence was then blown to shreds after the interval. Aaron Mclean hauled Posh level when sweeping home a free-kick from Grant McCann in the 50th minute and the hosts quickly hit the front when Jamie McCombe inadvertently sent the ball into his own net after Craig Mackail-Smith had dashed clear. A fine second from Mclean in the 67th minute sealed Posh's success, but that was by no means the end of the drama. Scott Arfield squandered a golden chance for the visitors before substitute Gary Roberts struck a post in the dying moments.
