Addicks vs Peterborough

There is a lot riding on this game.  Not only will it be a good yardstick of how far we have come since Chris Powell and Co. took the reins, but we could also lose some ground in the race for the play offs.  No disrespect to the other teams we have played, but tomorrow's opponents are definitely the toughest we face since bringing our new man on board.  We are only three points ahead of the Posh so obviously a win will see them leap-frog us in the table.  At this stage of the season we need to keep putting points those points on the board.

I think it's doubtful that we can expect another 5-1 drubbing of Peterborough.  Darren Ferguson's return to the Posh has reinvigorated them and they have picked up some good results lately.  Their best form however has come at home, and they have struggled in away matches for much of the season winning only three from twelve matches.  In terms of goals, Peterborough really know where the back of the net is.  They've scored 60 goals so far this season, more than anybody else in the division, but they definitely have a problem keeping them out the other end too, hence their goal difference of only +5.  Reminiscent of Keegan's Man City side in a way.

We are obviously on a bit of a winning streak at the moment, but we have had a nice slice of luck helping us along.  It's going to be a very tough game, and an interesting one.  We are going to have to perform well if we are hopeful of a win, we can't keep riding our luck forever.  Unfortunately I'm not able to attend but I'll definitely be listening via the web and hoping that we can get the right result.
