How many tickets do people think we'll get allocated and will we sell out if it could decide if we stay up?

We've got about 80 seats plus the terrace I think, which holds about 4000.

4000? I didn't know their ground was that big! I guess we won't fill that then!

Nah, but I'd rather have a huge allocation that we can't fill than be restricted to a few hundred like at some places

Posh are wobbling at the wrong moment. They only drew at home to Chelts on Saturday and were supposedly awful last night against Millwall. This match could be massive for both teams!!

It was like watching us under Malpas. They were a bit unlucky with the three time taken penalty but they thoroughly deserved to lose.

We got our tickets on Saturday.

I have a sneaky feeling that both teams might need a point, and cue the dull 0-0 draw so everyone can celebrate. Would be happy with that, and it will be nice to be home from a game by 5:30 Cheesy

Posh Red,

You said on another thread that it is dual carriageway virtually all the way. I put the details into a routeplanner today and it came up with about 15 different "A" roads; what's going on?

4D,

This is the route we use & most of it (bar about 20 miles at either end) is dual carriageway.

From Swindon take the A420 to Oxford (this is a single carriageway, about 20/25 miles)

Join the A34 (first exit) towards the M40.

At the Junction with the M40, take the first exit towards Birmingham/Northampton on the M40

At the next junction (10), follow the road to Northampton, this is the A43.

Follow the A43 to Northampton. Go under the M1, and at that roundabout go straight across, at the next roundabout turn right and follow signs for the A45.

This takes you onto the Northampton ring road, but all of this is dual carriageway.

Follow the A45 through Wellingborough. (From here it should be signposted Peterborough).

Itís then dual carriageway until Rushden, and it's about 20 miles from here to the A1

When you hit Thrapston (at the Junction with the A14), the road becomes the A605, which you can follow all the way to Peterborough.

This will bring you out on the Junction of the A1, and from there it depends what sort of pub you like. Cheesy
You can head into the City Centre if you want a pub walking distance from the ground, or there are a few nice pubs which are about 5 mins to DRIVE into the City.

I donít drive particularly slowly, but on Saturdays it usually take me about 2 hours from Home to get to Swindon.
However, this will be a Bank Holiday weekend, so it might take a bit longer.

Hope this helps

I'd have thought the simplest route, would be M4, M25 off on the A1M, follow until it morphs to A1, follow until just near Peterboro.

That's the way we're planning on, but mostly because we have to pick Whits up at Chieveley services.

Is that the Friday? Usually they send them back by Friday lunchtime don't they?

I think the ticket office should have the answer to the question though.
