Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson wary of Stevenage threat

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has warned his team to expect a difficult game when they travel to rock bottom Stevenage in League One on Saturday.

Posh are on the crest of a wave having secured their place in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy this week, but Ferguson says his players mustn't be complacent against Boro.

"Stevenage play a particular way, they've got high energy and we're going to have to match that," Ferguson told ITV News Anglia.

"When we get the ball, we're going to have to play good football - that will be the key. It's always a difficult game at Stevenage and I don't expect anything different on Saturday."

Peterborough United striker Conor Washington targets two Wembley trips

Peterborough United striker Conor Washington says that the club are targeting two trips to Wembley this season after booking their place in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final.

Posh will take on Chesterfield in the JPT final at the end of March, but Washington believes that his team could return a couple of months later in the League One play-off final.

"Obviously, the place is buzzing with the lads getting to Wembley," Washington told ITV News Anglia.

"Everyone's really excited and it's a great opportunity for all the lads. Now we've got to fight hard for the rest of the season to hopefully get there again."

Peterborough travel to local rivals Stevenage on Saturday in a game which carries huge significance at both ends of the table.

Posh Legend looks forward to Wembley - as a fan

Former Peterborough star David Farrell was a winner at Wembley in the old Third Division play-off final in May 2000. Farrell, who now work's for the club's Football in the Community programme, said "There were a lot of young nervous lads in our team at the time.

"We're obviously a young squad now but I think they'll take it in their stride and I'm sure they'll lift it.'

Posh won on both their previous Wembley visits, the first in 1992
