"I don't think it has helped our cause that they are coming off the back of a very heavy defeat.

"Their manager will be smarting and I expect them to come at us from the first whistle.

"Before that result it was always going to be a hard game anyway. But that will probably make it even harder."

Before crashing on the south coast, Peterborough had started impressively with a 3-0 win over Bristol Rovers being followed by a comprehensive 4-1 defeat of Rotherham in the Carling Cup.

Town, with four points from two games, travel to Everton in the Carling Cup on Wednesday.
