Peterborough United travel to Premier League side Reading, in the second round of the Capital One Cup.
Reading -Vs- Peterborough United
Venue: Madejski Stadium
Date: 28th August, 2012
The Posh will be looking to advance to the third round of the capital one cup, but also to win their first game in four matches.
Reading come into this game on the back of a 4-2 defeat by Premier League big spenders Chelsea, in a game they led 2-1 for a period. They will undoubtedly come into the game full of confidence and expecting a win against a Posh side that have failed to get started so far this season.
Posh are expected to make a number of changes for this fixture, having lost all 3 of their opening league games this season, in what has been their worst start in 40 years. Danny Swanson is expected to start after he livened things up against Leeds, as is Mark Little, who gave Posh an option attacking down the right wing, which was lacking with Craig Alcock at right back.
Nat Knight-Percival is also expected to play, and will replace Shaun Brisley, who has been below par in the opening games. Jonson Clarke-Harris could also start his first competitive game in a Posh shirt after his free transfer from Coventry City in the summer. But target man, Tyrone Barnett will again miss out as Darren Ferguson doesn't want to risk any further injury.
Daniel Kearns could also be in contention for the game. He hasn't featured since going off injured in the pre-season game against Aston Villa, in which he played very well. Posh will be without Tommy Rowe, Dave Hibbert and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing once again. But want away striker Paul Taylor could return to the line-up.
Vital Posh predicts the starting line-up could be:
Little, Zakuani, Knight-Percival, Nthle
Swanson, Bostwick, McCann, Boyd
