What are the Peterborough United manager and players saying about the upcoming match with Sheffield United?
Posh have won six matches in a row but they aren`t taking anything for granted when Sheffield United turn up at London Road.
"You have no divine right to beat anyone in this division," said Darren Ferguson. "You cannot just turn up and win football matches, you have to work hard and I believe we have made an excellent start to the season.
"We have won 10 out of 12 of our league fixtures and are just one point behind the leaders. I do believe we deserve a bit more credit for our results.
"Sheffield United will be another difficult opponent for us. They have some good players and had a good win at the weekend. I`d take another 1-0 now, but I`m not too sure about anyone else!
"You could argue that Sheffield should be doing better with the squad they have, but then it`s another pointer to how hard this league is.
"They had a good win on Saturday which took them out of the bottom four and will give them some confidence. A change of manager often helps teams and Sheffield are playing in a far more direct style since Chris Morgan took over from David Weir.
"They have a couple of strong strikers in Marlon King and Lyle Taylor so we need to watch them carefully.
"But it`s our form that I`m interested in. I`d love to see us start as well as we did against Shrewsbury, but this time with a goal. It would make a big difference to the way our games go if we managed to score early.
"Teams are happy to sit deep and get men behind the ball against us and that makes it difficult to score."
Posh picked up a couple of injuries both before and during Saturday`s win over Shrewsbury with Fergie waiting for the last moment before deciding on his starting XI: "It`s good for us that Grant is fit. His form has been good so he`s certainly in my thoughts when I pick the team. Lee Tomlin trained very well today, but maybe I need to get a week of training in him before he plays.
"It`s not a question of saving him for the tough games we have in November [Leyton Orient and Wolves all play Posh next month] because every game is tough. I might put Lee on the bench to start with.
"Mark Little has not been ruled out yet. He will have a late fitness test, but he is doubtful."
