Peterborough wing-back Joe Newell

[Speaking about Wilfried Zaha]: "Yeah, he is a very exciting player and it will be a good test for myself and for the team, but we are concentrating on ourselves and how we can cause them problems.

"It is a big game, there should be a decent atmosphere and we are all looking forward to it.

"We were all devastated to lose in the manner that we did on Tuesday night at Brighton, but as the manager said to us in the dressing room afterwards, there is no time to be hungover from it, we have back to back home games and we need to pick up the points."
