Peterborough United make the long journey to the Fylde Coast this weekend as they travel to Play-Off chasing Fleetwood Town.
Tuesday night’s victory over Southend United saw Posh move up to second place in the Sky Bet League One table, but Fleetwood in ninth are just seven points behind with three games in hand.
It promises to be a difficult game for Posh in testing conditions in Lancashire, but Fergie and co will be optimistic about picking up their seventh straight victory.
Ahead of the game, we spoke to Knappers, a huge Fleetwood Town fan who regularly vlogs all of the Cod Army’s games. Keep your eyes peeled on his youtube channel today as there will be one coming after today’s game, but in the meantime here’s a look at what he had to say ahead of the game:
1) You currently sit ninth in the table just two points off the Play-Offs, do you personally think you’re capable of reaching them?
Of course, why not! We’ve been on a great run. 1 defeat at home all year, 1 loss in 11. Just keep winning, who knows
2) What’s your best memory supporting Fleetwood town?
Promotion in 2014. What a day! I was every emotion. To get into this league was massive!
3) Joey Barton is quite a controversial figure in football…what’s it like to have him as a manager?
He’s a good manager, had a lot of resources from our owner. Some like him some don’t, but overall I think he’s doing a good job.
4) Paddy Madden is the second top scorer in the league…how important has he been for you?
When we had one win in 12 ( nine draws) Paddy scored once in that run, when he dries up we don’t do as well. He’s crucial!
5) Your victory over Wycombe on Tuesday was impressive, but what’s your highlight of the season so far?
Beating you first day or beating Wycombe. That was massive to start our campaign in a good manner. And to go to the toughest team at home in the league is a tough game!
6) Which Posh players are you most worried about on Saturday?
There are so many! Dembele, Szmodics, Eisa, Jack Taylor. I’m just thankful Ivan Toney is out. You have the best squad in the league in my opinion.
7) Ivan Toney will miss the game…how much of a boost does that give you?
It’s a boost, but you still have so many players to cover him, you are not a one-man team.
8) What Fleetwood players do Posh need to watch out for?
Paddy Madden, scores goals, prolific needs 1 chance, will score with it. Also Barrie McKay. Been awesome since he’s joined the club.
9) You beat us comfortably on the opening weekend of the season, but what do you think the score will be this time around?
1-1 Morris and Eisa
10) Predictions for the end of the season – who’s going up automatically, who’s winning Play-Offs, and who’s getting relegated?
1st Rotherham, 2nd Peterborough, 3rd Coventry, 4th Portsmouth, 5th Sunderland, 6th Ipswich. Relegated: Bolton, Southend, Tranmere
