AWAY TO PETERBOROUGH IN FA CUP SECOND ROUND

9 November 2015

Hatters off to London Road in second round

The Town's reward for beating Crawley is a trip to League 1 side Peterborough United in the second round of the FA Cup.

The tie will be played over the weekend 5th December. Dates, times and ticket information to be confirmed in due course.

Posh, 13th in the third tier, progressed to the second round after a 3-0 victory at Burton Albion this weekend.

It will be the second time the Hatters have played Posh in the competition, having won 3-0 at Kenilworth Road in a third round tie in 1983.

There are plenty of connections between the two clubs with manager John Still, goalkeeper Mark Tyler, defender Scott Griffiths and strikers Josh McQuoid and Craig Mackail-Smith all previously with Peterborough.

The Hatters' last visit to London Road was a 2-2 draw in the League 1 title season of 2004/05 - Tyler played in that game but couldn't keep out goals from Steve Howard and Kevin Nicholls.
