Will the world stop?

Jose Mourinho had tonight's fixture between Manchester United and Real Madrid in mind when he said that everyone in the world would be watching rather than tonight's match between Peterborough United and Charlton Athletic, but for us it's another important fixture.

Posh manager Darren Ferguson thinks that the Addicks will be hard to break down, but is confident they can build on their win at Blackburn: Posh

It is uncertain whether Dale Stephens and Chris Solly will be available. Stephens was sidelined by a knock on Saturday while Solly picked up a dead leg. Solly's presence could make a lot of difference, freeing Wilson to forage further upfield. On balance, Stephens would be an asset. While he does sometimes dwell too much on the ball and loses it, or gives it to an opposition player, he can show flashes of real quality.

Peterborough have won five matches at home and lost ten, while the Addicks have lost just six away and won seven. However, Charlton are fourth from bottom in the form table while Peterborough are eighth.

Following the departure of Paul May as away commentator, Sue Burton will provide coverage from London Road.
