    Fulham loanee Matthew Briggs is expected to make his debut for Peterborough at left-back, with Tommy Rowe set to return to midfield.

    Striker Paul Taylor has been ill this week and is a doubt.

    West Ham will be without captain Kevin Nolan after he was sent-off in last week's derby win against Millwall.

    Left-back George McCartney is expected to recover from a hamstring problem, but Papa Bouba Diop (hamstring) and Guy Demel (thigh) are both out.

    Head-to-head


    • West Ham hold a 100% record against Peterborough, having won all three of their previous meetings.

    Well I doubt that they have under soil heating at London Road, Su. Let's face it, it is not even an all-seater stadium yet !

    As I have been doing lately , I popped over to the Posh Chat site to get some feed back on the game Saturday and this is what I got .

    bristleposh
    I think we'll stay up, I think we'll come second to you on the day, to a hotly desputed penalty that should never have been given and our Chairman will get another fine. When you decide that you've had enough of Jack Collison, can we have him back where he belongs, another thing that Barry Fry can't be forgiven for,

    BAPosh
    We are currently a little out of form but that's nothing new.

    Leon Rigby-Robson
    We're good enough to stay up but as you say it's a funny old league.

    Hoping for an entertaining game and a good atmosphere.

    Lets hope Nolan doesn't do his Chicken impression - the farmers in the crowd might have their shotguns!

    westmead_lord
    West Ham will finish runners up to Birmingham

    Teessider
    I'd like to see Posh win of course.. Remember 1988-89 when Middlesbrough played West Ham at the Boleyn ground and the hammers fans smashed the coaches up..

    bristleposh
    At least when we play you we won't have Kevin "Tom Daley" Nolan trying every time he gets touched anywhere in our half trying to get a penalty.

    Peterborough game in doubt

    From KUMB....

    A team of volunteers have been helping Peterborough United clear their London Road ground of snow - although it still may not be enough to save tomorrow's fixture.

    Hundreds of supporters - including Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony and the club's youth team - have pitched in to help clear several inches of snow that has fallen in the town during the past few days.

    However tomorrow's match against West Ham - from which a win could see Sam Allardyce's side go SEVEN points clear at the top - is still in the balance due to fresh overnight snowfalls in Cambridgeshire and the freezing conditions.

    With no undersoil heating in place at the stadium, groundsmen have covered the playing surface in an attempt to ensure it remains playable.

    However it remains touch and go to see whether the game can go ahead due to the extremely low temperatures that could make the pitch dangerous to play on.


    Supporters set to travel to Peterborough tomorrow morning are advised to check the latest weather reports before leaving. Should the fixture be cancelled, KUMB.com will let you know as soon as an announcement is made.

    Peterborough United are to hold a pitch inspection tomorrow morning to see if their game against West Ham can go ahead.

    Referee Chris Sarginson is due to inspect the London Road surface at 10am after heavy snowfall last night – and with further sub-zero temperatures expected tonight.

    Posh are appealing for at least 300 volunteers to turn up from 7am tomorrow to help clear snow from the pitch and transport it to a designated area outside the stadium to allow the covers to be removed ahead of the inspection.

    “At the moment, the pitch beneath the covers is playable,” Posh chief executive Bob Symns told the club website.

    “Obviously we are all now waiting for the results of the overnight temperatures. We are doing everything we can to ensure this game will take place, but we really need your assistance to remove the snow first thing on Saturday morning.

    Edit .

    The game will be on, Peterbrough have said that the ground staff expect it to be playable it tonights weather is favourable. No reason to lie.

    No offence to Peterbrough, but this is a big deal financially for a club that size, they will go the extra mile to ensure there is not postponed. No only do they have a sold out away end, but will have a sold out home and corporate section, that would have been sold at a premium.

    Most importantly, for a team its far better to play the games and try get the points of the board rather than having a game in hand over rivals, so for that reason I hope it goes ahead and that we go 7 clear by 5pm Saturday.

    Forecast for Peterborough is -4 tonight, 1 degree tomorrow

    From our Offishul

    10.02.2012

    Posh plan pitch inspection

    A pitch inspection will take place at London Road at 10am on Saturday

    Peterborough United have confirmed that a pitch inspection will be held at London Road at 10am on Saturday 11 February ahead of the npower Championship visit of West Ham United.

    Heavy snowfall overnight between Thursday and Friday resulted in the pitch and stadium areas being covered in snow. With sub-zero temperatures expected on Friday night the decision has been made to leave the snow on the pitch until early Saturday morning as it will act as an insulation blanket until it is removed.

    The Cambridgeshire club has appealed for at least 300 volunteers to assist with clearing the snow from the pitch early on Saturday morning. Ideally, Peterborough would like volunteers to arrive, preferably with snow shovels, from 7am and report to reception. All volunteers need to be over the age of 18.

    The procedure will be to clear the snow from the covers on the pitch, transport it outside of the stadium to a designated tipping area and allow the covers to be removed for a 10am pitch inspection by the match referee Chris Sarginson.

    A Peterborough spokesman has confirmed that the pitch-clearing operation is open to supporters of both clubs.

    Gritting lorries will be deployed at the stadium and surrounding areas on Friday and on Saturday morning to ensure spectator safety outside of the ground.

    With a capacity crowd expected at London Road, Posh chief executive Bob Symns said the club was eager for the game to go ahead.

    "At the moment, the pitch beneath the covers is playable," he confirmed. "Obviously we are all now waiting for the results of the overnight temperatures. We are doing everything we can to ensure this game will take place, but we really need your assistance to remove the snow first thing on Saturday morning."

    The official website and club's twitter feed will have all the latest developments from London Road on Saturday morning.

    What channel are you getting the game on, G? My son has a football competition that is going on all day so I won't be home until after the game starts but quite a few seem to be getting live games on the tv apart from me - have Canal + Sweden started showing Champs matches now? Our C+ still shows PL.

    btw - where's Upplands in Sweden? My son starts playing 11 a side in the Upplands series league this summer so I'm wondering what the travelling will be like

    Was -9 at 10am this morning up on the coast which was about 30 miles from Peter'boro, so no surprise it didnt go ahead. Makes Tuesdays game even more important, can go 4 point clear with a game in hand!

    As for the cooments about players who were at both clubs, which I assume geeze got from a Posh site, just a few about some I remember:

    Gary Breen: Elegant central defender? :affraid: When was he ever one of these words! One of the worst players I've seen at west Ham in 40 odd years (Mostly odd)

    Dave Swindlehurst: Always liked him, thought he did fairly well when he played for us

    Peter Eustace: was a great player at wednesday, dont know what went wrong whne he came to us but he definately became Peter Useless!

    Bill Green: Another good jobbing CB, thought he didnt do to bad while he was with us.

    Dale Gordon: Wnakar

    Big sam on the postponement

    Sam Allardyce ensured West Ham United got over the postponement of their npower Championship fixture at Peterborough United by getting his players out on the pitch at Chadwell Heath on Saturday.

    The manager was on his way to London Road when he got the call to say that the game had been called-off, despite the superb efforts of fans from both teams in trying to make the frozen pitch playable. Big Sam and his coaching staff were determined to make the most of the situation, though, and put the squad through a training session upon their return to Essex.

    "We were on our way down and they told us to turn around as there was no point in coming down as the pitch was solid," said Big Sam. "They were trying desperately to get the game on but it was too dangerous for the players to consider trying to play the game.

    "If the game had been back in London we would have been fine as the weather is a lot milder here and it's amazing the difference an hour's drive can make. We went from a minus-ten to a plus-three temperature."

    Big Sam's focus will now switch to Tuesday night's visit of Southampton under the lights at the Boleyn Ground and he is confident that Saturday's postponement will not affect the Hammers' preparation.

    "When the lads got back we had a quick session and then got home. We were all frustrated. It doesn't affect our preparations for Southampton at all other than we didn't play.

    "We have time to get our minds focused on Southampton without any injuries or fatigue because we haven't played. We'll be training again tomorrow and Monday to make sure we're ready for the game."

    With less than 3,500 tickets remaining for Tuesday's top-of-the-table fixture, fans should move fast to purchase their seats here.
