Vital Posh looks at previous matches between Peterborough United and Reading ahead of the 2013/14 Capital One Cup Round Two match at London Road.
Posh and the Royals have met twelve times in the League Cup down the years with Reading winning half the matches while Posh have won just twice!
You don`t have to look too far back to find the last time they met each other in the League Cup. That came nearly exactly a year ago on 28th August 2013 in the round two of the Capital One Cup! On that occasion, the match was played at the Madejski Stadium and required Reading to come from behind twice in the first twenty minutes before netting the winner thanks to an unfortunate Nat Knight-Percival own goal in the 38th minute!
Posh don`t have much luck when playing Reading at home in the League Cup. They have won just once and that was the first ever time the teams met in the competition way back in the 1976/77 season when Posh triumphed 3-1…but it did take 3 matches to get the winner! The early cup matches were played over two legs with the first match at Reading finishing 3-2 to Posh before Reading won the second leg 1-0 meaning an extra match was required to decide the winner. Tommy Robson opened the scoring for Posh in the 37th minute but John Murray sent the match into extra time with an equaliser in the 81st minute. It was Ernie Moss that won the match for Posh as he struck a brace of goals in extra time.
The last 10 League Cup results between these two sides were:
