An interesting dilemma faces Jack Ross ahead of Peterborough away.
He made eight changes for the Carabao Cup visit to Burnley and watched in admiration as the team came from behind to secure a marvellous 3-1 win and a third round trip to another Premier League side, Sheffield United.
There were excellent individual performances – Denver Hume, Luke O’Nien, Jack Baldwin and George Dobson being among the names that stood out in the commentary – but above all it seems to have been an exemplary team display.
So the winning side picks itself for Posh? It does not. The team Ross played in the last league game, at home to AFC Wimbledon, also won 3-1. Aiden McGeady and Chris Maguire, absent on Wednesday night, will surely be among the first names on the team sheet for this Saturday and it is difficult to see other than a return in goal for Jon McLaughlin,well as Lee Burge played at Burnley.
Tell us how you feel Ross should approach the job of selecting a starting 11 capable of making it seven wins in a row. And tell us, just for fun, how the match will end.
Bravo, Sunderland, on a fine achievement at Turf Moor. And whichever Lads play at Posh, Ha’way those Lads.
