Emirates FA Cup 2nd Round Replay
7.45pm on Tuesday 12th December 2017
Weather permitting, Woking make the trip to London Road on Tuesday for the 2nd Round FA Cup replay against Peterborough. Most commentators felt that the Cards had much the better of the first game and will be disappointed not to have won. That is especially significant given that the winners face a potentially lucrative trip to Villa Park to face Aston Villa in the 3rd Round in the New Year.
Woking have only played one match since their first encounter with the Posh following Saturday’s postponement of the league game against Gateshead. That game saw a much changed side go out of the Surrey Senior Cup after a 3-1 reverse at home to Chipstead. Most of the side that would be expected to face Peterborough missed out on this midweek encounter and as a result Anthony Limbrick’s squad should be well rested and without any further injuries.
Chez Isaac will have been disappointed that the Gateshead game was postponed as that means he misses out on this replay with his one match ban still in place.
Anthony Limbrick has signed goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott on a month’s loan from Bristol City. We wait to see if he features in the line-up or on the bench on Tuesday.
Since their visit to the Laithwaite Stadium Peterborough have beaten Southend United 2-0 in the Checkatrade Trophy with goals from Gwion Edwards and Marcus Maddison and then faced Blackburn Rovers in the League on Saturday.
The Posh let an early lead slip as Rovers scored three goals in ten minutes after the break. Jack Marriott slotted home a second for the hosts in injury time but it was not enough to secure any points for Peterborough. Late on Captain Jack Baldwin received a second yellow card and will miss the game on Tuesday.
