It's that time of the week again when we look at what the managers and players are saying ahead of our game.

Later today we face Peterborough United at London Road, in what promises to be a difficult encounter. Should be beat them?

Well yes if we want to get promoted. I know the end of the season is miles away but Peterborough are expected to finish in the bottom half and we need to be picking up three points.

However, Posh boss Darren Ferguson will be out for revenge after last season's win over Peterborough at London Road in the dying minutes.

Below we have Neil Warnock's thoughts, Darren Ferguson's and midfielder David Norris has had his say on the defeat to Blackpool and our opponents today.

Neil Warnock, speaking to the official site:

"I don't think there are any favourites in this division. Every game will be difficult. Can you imagine Peterborough in the dressing room on Saturday? They will be dying to get some points on the board.

"I think this will be our most difficult game so far, albeit in a different way to what Blackpool was on Tuesday because of what's at stake. They have some good players when you look at the likes of George Boyd and some of the others.

"I don't think there'll be a problem with effort, it's just maybe quality with us losing a player. I've been in the situation they're in and I know what they're going through. If anyone thinks it will be easy they can forget that."

Darren Ferguson, speaking to the Peterborough United site:

"Leeds are a massive club and I am confident it will be a cracking atmosphere. It is a quick turnaround from Tuesday and we know we need to put in a better performance.

"Leeds at home is always one of the biggest fixtures of the season in the Championship. It was a great game down here last season when we got pipped right at the end. We thought we had snatched a draw, which would have felt more like a win after playing so long with 10 men.

"That match was like a cup tie and I don't mind one bit if Saturday's game is like that as well. The one thing you know about Neil Warnock's team's is that they will have high energy and effort. They will come here and work really hard. They will come here and work really hard."

David Norris, speaking to the Leeds United official site:

"They're in front of their own fans and that will make it difficult. This club also has a reputation where it seems like it's a bigger game for everybody. We lost the other day, but we'll forget about that and move on."
