What are the Peterborough United manager and players saying about the upcoming match at Rotherham?
Posh get back to League action after their long trip to Sunderland in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday.
After beating the previously unbeaten MK Dons last week, Posh now travel to Rotherham who are also unbeaten. Up next, after the Millers clash is a match against yet another unbeaten League One side, Preston North End, so Posh are certainly in a run of tough games and it got harder on Tuesday when Lee Tomlin limped out of the Sunderland match after cynically being chopped down from behind.
Posh boss Darren Ferguson knows it`s going to be a tough ride: "We have two games now against teams that are unbeaten this season and after eight matches that sort of form is not a fluke.
"Rotherham are a good side with a manager who knows how to get teams promoted. I fully expect them to be in the top six at the end of the season which makes this a very important game for us.
"If we can get a positive result from this game it would deliver a statement of intent to the rest of the division. It won`t be easy as they have some good players, notably Lee Frecklington who is probably their biggest danger.
"But there are lots of good teams in the league and we are one of them. We go there with confidence."
The Tomlin injury is obviously a massive blow to Posh, but they`ve brought in former Posh forward Paul Taylor [pictured above] on loan and Fergie believes he could soften the blow of missing Tomlin: "Paul was excellent for us first time around. He can play in a number of positions, at the top of diamond or alongside a striker and he is straight into the squad for the Rotherham game [28th September].
"Paul just wants to play football and it`s a massive advantage that he knows me, he knows most of the players and he knows how we like to play.
"Losing Tomlin is a blow, but I think he`s actually been really lucky. It was an atrocious tackle which should have led to a red card and there was a time after the Sunderland game that we would lose him for a long time, possibly even the season."
