A welcome break from the league and long road trips.

The victory will bring Posh one step closer to a potential date at Wembley.

Jack Taylor and Jonson Clarke-Harris should be fully recovered from bouts of illness, but Grant McCann must choose whether to select them or not.

Dear me, bad time for Posh there. Watts throws a clumsy ball but it instead bounces off him and Kyprianou sleeps as Hutchinson pinches her on the edge of the box to claim it. Kyprianou has to slip from behind to cut the ball off, he just about gets away with it.

Posh seeing a lot of the ball, Chelsea really try to play when they get it. A few misplaced passes so far though.

Burrows puts it on JCH’s head but the defender but Brooking gets a blocking header on it.

Front foot start however, Jones now wins a corner.

Still looks like a 4-3-3 for Posh as Jones throws an orbiting cross.

Looks like Burrows is back at left-back.

Mensah at right-back – his first Posh game since December 2020.

Joel Randall will probably be the most advanced in the midfield. Grant said he was going to bring him there on Saturday before EMC’s injury forced him to rethink.
