Following our 2-0 Carling Cup loss to Peterborough earlier in the season, it seems Peterborough`s cup win has wound up at least one of our older heads. With Chris Hughton having fielded a youth team in the tie it seems typical of another team seeing us as their cup final, a la Forest, Blackpool or Scunny after them. Harps said:

‘I wasn’t at Peterborough, but I’m told that their players were milking it against a lot of our young lads, so we’re looking forward to them coming up. I’m sure the fans will get behind us and show how tough a place St James’s Park is to come.

The Doncaster one was a big one – we went behind and won a tough, battling game. Those are the qualities you need in this league. It was proved again (at Sheffield United), and we’re not underestimating Peterborough.

We know that it’ll be a tough game, and that they’ll come and make it difficult for us, but it would be fantastic to take another three points.’
