London Road Stadium, Peterborough
Sat Feb 11th, 3PM KO.
Top of the table West Ham take a 4 point lead over second place Southampton going in to this away fixture at London Road against Darren Ferguson's men, who are currently lying in a lowly 18th place.
The result of the Upton Park fixture was a West Ham win, with Mark Noble converting from the spot with the only goal of the game.
West Ham have lost only one in their last 5 games in the league, a humiliating 5-1 thrashing by Ipswich at Portman Road. The result was quickly forgotten after West Ham beat arch rivals Millwall 2-1 at The Boleyn Ground last time out, with goals from Top Scorer Carlton Cole, and a scorcher of a volley from New Zealand International defender Winston Read
Both clubs are new-boys to the Championship, with Peterborough being promoted via the play-offs last season.
West Ham could give first starts to recent signings Nicky Maynard and Ricardo Vaz Te, the latter making a fleeting appearance against Millwall to make his Hammers debut.
Not done one for a while, so let's get another run going.
A convincing away win, Maynard and Vaz Te on the score-sheet.
One in the chops for Adrian Durham

really want to win this to shut that ginger **** up you can hear the pain in his voice when he says west ham are top of the league...we can not win if we beat them it is because we spent big if we lose we beat the bigspenders no win situation
Why couldn't you wait for Bobby Orangeboom ?
DL's back...........with a match thread, we're never going to hear the end of this.
Three points it is then.
This whole "certain match thread starters are lucky" thing is getting ridiculous, I'm sure with some posters theres not even a hint of irony
Can we have the stats and club crests back please, DL? Best opening posts we've had for a while, them...
ps. I saw the pre-edit ... and thought it was a fair point you made
Is it just me or can we please change the spelling of Peterbro
Subs: Reid: Collison: Baldock: Vaz Te: Morrison
After today I think we should begrudgingly keep Faubert in the team on the right and put Taylor in for Nolan and have Collison in the middle with Noble. I dont have a problem with keeping to the Tomkins in midfield experiment. Faye or Reid are both undroppable in their own ways.
Just realised 7 days till Peterboro away............perhaps we may use it usefully.
I'd have Reid up front
Jokes aside, I agree with this... Hopefully the exclusion of Nolan for the next three games will actually give us something different (better).
Bubbs I had to grit my teeth as I typed it
Also if you see a handsome, cool indie kid on a crutch in the terrace please dont crush him to death, cheers.
Keeper, Faye, Diop, Lansbury, Baldock
That is a team some PL clubs would be jealous of.
Well, didn't want people to think the halo was slipping
Going into this six points clear of 3rd, four clear of 2nd and playing against a team who haven't scored two goals in a game in their last ten outings....
This is an opportunity to really turn the screw on the teams behind us and make the Southampton game that follows one where a draw would be perfectly ok for us.
Anyone know if they have undersoil heating at London Rd?
It doesn't matter, the only threat to this fixture will be a waterlogged pitch after the big thaw.
Hope everyone is ready for a good atmosphere in the terrace lets have it rocking
