Peterborough is a huge game says boss as he looks for Blues to wipe out Foxes memory

Mick McCarthy is looking for a reaction from his players after last week’s defeat at Leicester in what he describes as a huge game for both Town and Peterborough on Saturday. 

Blues are two places and a point above bottom of the table Posh but a win for either side could take them out of the relegation places. 

“We need to react to what was a very disappointing performance and result at Leicester last weekend,” said the Town boss, speaking in his column in Saturday’s matchday programme. 

“I’d have taken six points from the four games we have played since I have been here. The games we lost - at Palace and Leicester - I probably didn't expect to come away with three points from those matches but I expected us to play much better than we did. Our fans travel a long way to watch us and I never want them to see performances like that again.

“We picked over the bones of the Leicester game on the Monday and then you have to move on. It's all about the next game in football. I can't do anything about the past. 

“It's obviously a huge game for both teams given our positions in the table. With the terrific support we enjoy, hopefully we can make home advantage count.”
