Preview | Peterborough United (a) - Carabao Cup Round One

7 August 2017

Carabao Cup Round One - The ABAX Stadium - Tuesday 8th August 2017 – KO 7:45pm

Team News: 

John Akinde is still recovering from a minor knee injury which kept him out of Saturday’s game at Forest Green. Richard Brindley (foot) and Curtis Weston (calf) are doubtful. Jack Taylor will serve his one match ban following his red card on Saturday.

Last Time We Met:

The two teams met at The Hive last season in the Checkatrade Trophy, with Posh running out 2-1 winners. Paul Taylor gave the visitors an early lead before a first professional goal for Justin Amaluzor tied the game in the 68th minute.

However with 6 minutes left to play, George Moncur netted to give Peterborough the win but neither side advanced out of the group.


Grant McCann was appointed Peterborough manager full time last summer after a good spell as caretaker following Graham Westley’s departure from London Road.

The Northern Irishman had made 185 appearances as a player for the Posh between 2010 and 2015. His youth career began at Distillery and West Ham United but was loaned out several times before he found success at Cheltenham Town. He was with the Gloucestershire club for 7 years before moving to Barnsley and then onto Scunthorpe before joining Peterborough.

He finished his playing career at Linfield. He played 40 games for the Northern Ireland national side over 11 years.

In his first season in charge of Peterborough he guided them to 11th place, 11 points off of the play off positions.


Marcus Maddison bagged 8 goals last campaign and has attracted interest from clubs in the Championship. Maddison is a pacey wide midfielder who is more than comfortable in the middle of the park as well.


The Bees have two former Peterborough players in their ranks. Ricardo Santos joined Barnet from the ABAX stadium in January after making 63 appearances for the Cambridgeshire side.

More recently, striker Shaq Coulthirst joined Barnet following his release from Peterborough last month.

Barnet’s youngest ever player Mathew Stevens could have lined up against the Bees for Peterborough but was loaned out last week to Evo Stik Southern side Kettering Town.

And of course Barry Fry, a household name among all Barnet fans, is Director of Football at Peterborough.

Last Time Out:

The Posh got their Sky Bet League One campaign underway at the weekend with a 2-1 victory at home over Plymouth Argyle.

They made the perfect start with Leo Da Silva Lopes’ cross taking a huge deflection and ending up in the back of the net.

Junior Morais doubled their lead shortly after the break as Junior Morais was left with a simple finish following good work down the right hand side by Jack Marriot.

Argyle pulled a goal back late on through Gregg Wylde but few chances followed for either side giving Peterborough 3 points on the opening day.

Peterborough: Jonathan Bond, Ryan Tafazolli, Jack Baldwin, Steven Taylor, Leo Da Silva Lopes (sub Alex Penny, 90 mins), Gwion Edwards, Anthony Grant, Michael Doughty, Marcus Maddison (sub Danny Lloyd, 81 mins), Jack Marriott, Junior Morias (sub Idris Kanu, 68 mins). Unused substitutes: Josh Tibbetts, Chris Forrester, Andrew Hughes, Callum Chettle.

Match Reports

Report | Peterborough United 1-3 Barnet FC

8 August 2017

The Bees progressed through to the second round of the Carabao Cup with an excellent win away at League 1 side Peterborough United.

The Bees started in the same shape they ended away to Forest Green on the weekend and began brightly, David Tutonda striking the upright following an effort from the edge of the box.

Chances followed for Coulthirst, Akpa Akpro and Elliott Johnson before Barnet took a well-deserved lead in the 22nd minute.

Mauro Vilhete's corner was headed down by Santos at the far post to Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro who fired high into the top corner, sending the 155 travelling Bees fans jubilant.

Peterborough started to find their way back into the game, Tafazolli and Marriott both having chances before they equalised on the half hour mark.

Gwion Edwards cut inside and shot at goal, beating Jamie Stephens at his near post to make it 1-1.

Shortly afterwards, Stephens pulled off a brilliant save to deny Forrester who was racing down on the Barnet shot-stopper.

In the 36th minute, Coulthirst sent through Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro who had Taylor racing up with him. The Frenchman opted to go it alone and his shot was saved.

Just 3 minutes later, Barnet regained the lead. The Bees opened up the Peterborough defence with some tricky, one touch passing. Akpa Akpro laid it off to Mauro Vilhete to slot home.

The second period saw a resurgence from Peterborough, who had opportunities from Marriott, Maddison and Tafazolli all dealt with by the Barnet back line in the first 10 minutes of the half.

56 minutes in and Barnet were awarded a free kick on the edge of the area after Coulthirst took a boot to the face. Vilhete stepped up and it struck the arm of a man in the wall and the referee awarded a penalty to the Bees.

Coulthirst stepped up only to see his spot kick saved by Bond, but the violent backspin sent it across goal and in, making it 3-1 to Barnet.

It was now a matter of holding out for the Bees, with Peterborough throwing everything at them. The defence stood firm, with Jamie Stephens pulling off a number of wonderful saves from close range to deny any chance for the hosts.

The Bees will now patiently wait for Thursday's Second Round Draw.

Barnet: Stephens, Johnson, Santos, Nelson, Campbell-Ryce (Bover 55'), Coulthirst (Amaluzor 68'), Tutonda, H. Taylor, Fonguck (Clough 88'), Vilhete, Akpa Akpro.

Unused subs: Ross, Akinola, Shomotun, Mason-Clark
